AWESOME Chinese food (considering the area is infiltrated with low-class disease-ridden so-called "Chinese Restaurants"). The service was great; he was very prompt, respectable, and well-mannered.

Pros: Awesome Desserts

Cons: Not really a con not enough leaves served with lettuce wrap

Cafe 121 is a good choice for Chinese food in the Westheimer area. I find Chinese food to be on the oily side sometimes and did not get that here. The Egg Corn Soup and the Pineapple Chicken were both really good.
