KarinaKarina: The noodles with sizzling oil are incredible! Amazing texture and flavor

Serious EatsSerious Eats: Fresh, hand pulled noodles are the star of the show, and the atmosphere is worthy of date night. Don't miss the Qishan Minced Pork Noodles. 

Jeff W.Jeff Weinstein: Hand pulled noodles, smashed garlic cucumber, the monster chicken dish, dumplings, lamb burger, cumin lamb noodles. If you wink the right way, you might be able to turn this place BYOB.

Foxxy B.Foxxy B: Incredible cocktails! Try the Peking duck: buttery tender & crispy skin. The buns are interesting. Good wings.

Andy W.Andy Wang: Reminds me of a more laid back Hakkasan with more OG Cantonese flavor profile and higher price point. Dungeness crab custard and uni noodle are must haves

Winson W.Winson Wong: The best thing here is the char-siu. That was really delicious. Other dishes were alright. Expensive Chinese fusion food. Service and cocktails were good though.
