What our customers say

Reviews

AMAZING food! Very good customer service too. The staff was patient with all of my questions and answered them all. I am a super picky eater, so it’s very easy to not like a lot of things, but I ordered both the chicken stir fry noodles and the pork buns. Both were PHENOMENAL!

After just one bite this has become my favorite restaurant in Albuquerque. After moving from Seattle I was craving some good Asian/dumplings. This place exceeded my expectations. I got pork buns, chicken dumplings, and chicken/beef noodles.
Caroline Farrell
My stir-fried noodles were excellent with a well-balanced flavor profile, and my fiancée got their signature hand-pulled noodle dish, which was also great from the few bites I stole. They hand-make the chili oil fresh every week, and it's not very spicy, but adds a lovely warmth and gentle sesame flavor to the dishes. Give it a try!

Fantastic restaurant. Their noodles are hand-pulled and their buns are hand-made. A delicious menu where you can see and taste the love and effort in every dish. Dine in or take out, this is easily my top Asian food restaurant in Albuquerque.

There's no better food in this town. The pork fried dumplings are AMAZING. The General Tso's Chicken is dynamite. My husband and I drive from the NW side and eat here almost weekly because we just cannot bring ourselves to waste one of our Friday lunch dates on anything else. We have never had anything that was not spectacular.

Want amazing noodles? This is THE place in the University area. Been here three times now - all three solid good experiences. The noodle dishes are superior and the bao (buns) are amazing. Try the vinegar dipping sauce! Go with the server's recommendations - always works for me!
