I Love this Chinese Restaurant. The food is excellent, good size servings, has great specials with good prices. You walk into to this clean large area and usually before you can ask something you are asked where you want to sit. The menus has a...full page of specials with great prices. Their other items are family style food or individual cuisines are listed. I drive from Yucaipa to this this restaurant because I love the food, the attentive staff, great prices and the very clean area.More

A friend told us about this Chinese restaurant, and we tried it out based on her recommendation. We were seated right away and thought the menu was a large with all of the basic Chinese food that we were familiar with. My husband and I...both ordered Egg Foo Young, our favorite. Our dishes quickly arrived at our table and were very generous portions, but we were grossed out by too much tasteless gravy. I got mine with pork which was tough, chewy, and gristly. My husband's Egg Foo Young was topped with whacked up pieces of dry chicken. This unappetizing meal looked like someone threw it up. This $8.95 dish included two mounds of fried rice, an egg roll, and hot or iced tea. Server was unfriendly, but maybe it was a language issue, so I can overlook that. The leftovers we took home were refused by our cat. We won't return.More

I was on my way from the desert into LA County and needed a late lunch. So I pulled off in Calimesa and went into Legend China 8. Its dining area was clean and attractively decorated, tho not overly so. I was immediately seated and...given a menu. I went with a Kung Po lunch special with hot tea. The food arrived quickly and was nicely presented. It tasted fresh, tho the onions could have been dialed back a bit. In short, it was an entirely pleasant meal and I’d do it again.More

Ate here recently with my Parents and thought every dish was delicious! Legend 8 has become one of the Local Favorites of my Parents who live in Beaumont. Highly recommended are Mongolian Beef and Lo Mein. Looking forward to eating here again and trying more...new dishes.More

What a nice surprise to find an attractive local restaurant with a large and diverse menu. We ordered three combination plates with shrimp, beef and vegetables. The quality was excellent and the portions were huge. The servers were friendly, helpful and welcoming. They prepared each...dish by order and were proud of meeting special dietary needs (e. g. Low salt). The prices were very fair. We will return often.More

Not sure where the “Chilean” came from on TA. It would have been fun to try a different fusion Chinese cuisine. I love “Chifa,” the Peruvian-Cantonese fusion. But, no, as far as I can tell, this is plain old, USA-Chinese food executed nicely. The food...is tasty. We enjoyed tender sautéed broccoli. That was a simple dish done very well! Lo mein, fried rice, Ma Po tofu, and mooshu were all very good. The eggplant was bland. Portions were generous. The service was attentive and the decor was nice, but not stuffy. The Pass Region deserves a solid, sit-down Chinese restaurant and I’m glad this came along to replace Tang’s.More
