This is an undiscovered gem. Amazing Eastern Chinese restaurant with excellent spicy food. Their lamb stir fry is the best.

Drove down the wrong street in Richmond and ended up in front of this fantastic restaurant. The Chinese food has a middle eastern flavour which is really nice bc the food uses some spices that are different than the normal Chinese flavours such as cumin, chilli and some sour. The place has nice decor representing the food it serves, it is clean, pleasant, organized and the staff is friendly. This is a good restaurant if you are tired of the usual Chinese food restaurants and flavours.
