Ordered take out while staying next door to the restaurant. Chicken chow mein and chicken egg foo young. The good news: egg foo young was excellent. Bad news: chicken chow mein missing most of the chicken and vegetables, mostly just noodles instead. Disappointed.

Owner stopped by several times to check on us. Prices were about average and usual fare. Offered sushi but didn't try it. Has a full bar menu and can be busy. Ok for kids.

Patterson is a good stopping point for our trips to and from the California Desert. The atmosphere is casual -- we were seated promptly and our drink order was taken shortly thereafter. There was one big party seated, it was not a overly crowded but...More

The front desk at Villa Del Lago sent us over here for dinner. It is not fancy and the staff is somewhat hard to understand. Order a drink from the bar but be sure to make it simple or a beer. Complicated drinks are not...More

There is not a lot of Chinese food around, however, this place is pretty good. Service isn't consistent. Sometimes very good, sometimes not so much. The food is always good. Very good chow mein and rice. Do not miss the Szechuan chicken. Spicy deliciousness! Others...More

Conveniently located off US 5 in Central California, this restaurant is a surprisingly good choice for travelers. The Chinese food is freshly made, tasty and reasonably priced. It is a splendid alternative to the nearby, familiar fast food franchises located in the same off-the-highway food-strip. Note: we're told the restaurant is usually quite busy with locals on Friday and Saturday evenings, but there were plenty of open tables on a recent weeknight visit while traveling between Barstow and Napa, California.
