Our friends we're traveling with had eaten here before. It was our first time. The food is fresh and different than typical Chinese restaurant. It was quite tasty! Highly recommend it.

My recent visit to Santa Fe took me to this restaurant twice. I would have never gone the 2nd time but friends so wanted to try it. We unfortunately had the same waiter both times. He was abrupt, rude, in a hurry and at one...More
