  • They have two menus: a boring one (with “safe” American choices like orange chicken) and a more interesting one.
  • The fish was especially tasty.
  • Excellent fortune cookies with actual FORTUNES.  (There are way too many advice/proverb cookies out there.)  For example, mine said, “You will soon be on a secret mission of the heart.”
