“BBQ Pork Buns are pretty awesome.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2013

A new addition to the University Ave. restaurant collections! Great ambiance and interior decorations. Lots of wood and glasses. The service is pretty good. The food is okay. Some items are better than others. I think the BBQ pork steamed buns are pretty good, especially the bun part. They also serve some really interesting Taiwanese/Chinese style noodle dishes that you don't normally find in other Chinese restaurants in the area.

They have Taiwanese rice noodles, which I don't think is anything like what I used to have in Taiwan. It is tasty though. If you have had the real thing in Taiwan, and if that's what you want, you will be disappointed. Otherwise, I think it in itself is a pretty tasty dish.

I will be back again to try different dishes next time.
