“You want to get a beer and a quick mouthwatering Chinese meal. Then this place is just ideal. The food is served pretty fast and they have a good menu to select from. If you want to take your bottle of "spirits" you can do so without any corckage charged. There last order is around 10 pm. Gets pretty crowded.”
