    From appetizers to desserts, this restaurant exceeded all our expectations! Me and my friends especially enjoyed the appetizers, entree meals & the variety of desserts! The Cheesecake was a crowd-pleaser! Highly recommended this place for a nice dinner.

    The food is always great and so is the ambiance! I had a Chinese chicken salad and my friend had the grilled chicken sandwich and wedge salad - both delicious.
