            Not sure of the hours. Highly reccomend sharing an order of dumplings from Tianjin Dumpling House as well

                The sea bass are one of a kind. I also like the lamb with squash

              Do not leave without ordering Chengdu's mapo dofu...sent me straight to eternity on my last Golden Mall adventure...will return to earth soon.

              Tea-smoked duck also on the greatest hits list.

        Unlike many who post here I speak and read no Chinese. I order by pointing, sometimes at the photos, sometimes at what people are eating. Honestly I've never gotten anything here that I didn't like - I mostly get the dishes with noodles. Seconded on the mapo tofu, also I love the chili rabbit.
