Finding a restaurant that offers both delicious food and satisfactory service can be difficult and costly. Money isn’t the only thing wasted when a restaurant doesn’t live up to ones standards, but time as well. Time that could’ve been spent at a better restaurant or cooking your own food instead.

Nonetheless, I continued to sample the appetizers and to satisfaction, the spring rolls actually had fresh crispy cabbage and medium pieces of shrimp in each bite! The steamed dumplings were steamed perfectly, the beef inside was extremely tender making the steamed dumplings a complete success. The crab ragoons did not fall behind of its appetizer competitors, because they were crunchy on the outside and smooth on the inside. The crab ragoons contained a mixture of fresh crab, minced green onion and cream cheese. While these appetizers were all different, the outcome was a warm melody of flavors sent from the gods of Chinese cuisine. The use of fresh ingredients in today society has become a big deal since everyone’s become a bit more conscious of their health.
