This is a real Chinese Muslim restaurant! I liked the humburgers [sic] best of all. Get lots of meat dishes, get lots of cumin, get noodles. Ask for help. Don’t let them pawn off their standard “Chinese” food on you. Be aggressive and firm. Just don’t expect any pork…

Sorry folks– This place has closed. There’s now a restaurant there called Burma Road, which I haven’t tried yet. But I confirmed that they, sadly, don’t have that cumin-tastic Xinjiang food.
As a chinese, I didn’t really like this place. They made only one or two things that were good. But not necessarily worth the drive their such as the kabobs and thick sesame bread. I can see why they closed.
