We have tried the restaurant and the take-away. Both were very good. I can't recall the name of my recent choice but is was better than the other Chinese restaurant we have frequented. It is a go-back place for us.

The place was dirty dirty dirty, food on the floor in the waiting area, we could see the dining room, napkins under the table, greasy table cloth. we ordered take out but wanted to leave right away. Two big rice cooker near the register with steamed rice in them. Walls dirty, carpet nasty. First and last time, broght the food home and dumped it out.

I have been eating at this place for more than five years. It is family owned, and they will remember you by name.
The food is healthy and prepared fast. The price is economical. The adjacent Vons store often has $5.00 coupons off on the back of the cash register receipts.

I highly recomend the kung pao shrimp and just about everything else. The restaurant isn't all that nice. I prefer to bring the food home. Best chinese food that I know in East San Diego.
