Just started walking a dog in this neighborhood. The smell coming from this place at lunch was amazing. Decided to try lunch today, and see the restaurant is no longer open. No notice on door as to why, just "space available" sign from realtor.

This place served your average menu of Chinese dishes. The scallops and shrimp in my entree were very fresh. Also the place has a funky Tiki Bar in it. They make a great Mai Tai. Food is hot and well prepared. Reasonable prices.

Nothing special here. Service was quick once we got to our table (took a bout an hour) Not sure why people like it. It was ok. I would not go out of my way for this but it meets a need.

A great corner restaurant in Pacific Beach, agacent to western San Diego, you would think you were in heaven the vegetables are crisp with a slight grilled flavor. The service can't be beat. They understand the importance of a happy customer.

Visit once a month or so. Food is good and the prices are nice. Nice to have a place close by when you don't want to cook and you don't want to break the piggyback.

Looking for Chinese food in Pacific Beach area. The staff was friendly and we had good service. The pork lo mein was very good ( even better reheated the next day!) also the sesame chicken was delicious. Would recommend for a simple Chinese dinner.
