This upscale Chinese cuisine restaurant is sure to please guests with its hospitable atmosphere and wonderfully authentic dishes. The idea was born in the backyard of Shae and Ryan Sims, who decided over a home-made bowl of General Tso's Chicken that they wanted to return home to Athens and open a neighborhood restaurant; and they did just that. Stop in for a quick bowl, or stay awhile and grab a drink.
