Korean owned Chinese restaurant, an interesting take on the classics . They put a small dish of fried noodles and kimchi on the table for you to munch on while you wait for your meal. I got the Peking chicken- great! Nice spicy kick, breading not too thick, good amount. I also had the seafood noodles which were ok but I definitely like the Peking chicken the best.

Chillin with some friends and we were all starved. One of my friends heard some good reviews of his place so we are tried it out. It was kinda right down the middle nothing that was too outstanding and nothing that was scary tasting. Overall I wont recommend or trash the place...
The service could be a faster by the wait staff but once we finally got to order, the food came fairly quickly to us. We had four dishes but nothing was memorable or nasty so I wont get into that. I will say that I dont think it tasted like instant/frozen chinese food like some people, but I will say it was not top tier for sure.
PRO TIP: Unless you drive a Mini Cooper, park on the street if you can. I think there was only 4"s on each side of my car when I went to leave... I had to go in through the rear door of my 4Runner =\
The wait was minimal to get into the restaurant and they were packed, so it was very crazy on that end. Literally all the tables were filled but I think we only waited like 5 minutes to get a table... then it took 15-20 minutes to order our food... the food came out within 10 minutes... so kinda weird how the timing was working here...
If you go I hope you like it. We had hardly any leftovers, but they were just enough for me to have for lunch the next day...
