Specializing in Chinese cuisine, the menu is emblazoned with vibrant appetite-inducing dishes based on traditional Chinese as well contemporary twists all infused with flavors of garlic, ginger, lime, and sesame along with the satiating aromas of Asia prepared by the Chinese Head Chef.

Starting with appetizers is the favorite Chinese speciality; roasted Beijing duck rolled inside thin Chinese pancakes called moo shu wraps that are plated with a side of dark duck sauce. Another popular and scrumptious choice that makes for a light and flavorful starter are the chicken lettuce wraps consisting of tender and flavorful minced chicken with a blend of chestnut and shiitake mushroom served with crisp lettuce.
