I have been eating here monthly for nearly 30 years. It is my favorite place in Monterey. Great Szechawan spicey pork with fried rice.Great combos and specials. Not to mention the waitress always knows what I want to eat and drink.

There are quite a few Restaurant choices on the Monterey Peninsula. And, as you can imagine, many are Seafood style and/or Steak choices. The food is plentiful, the prices are fair.

Love their food! It's hot, freshly prepared and has a good balance of flavours. I always get the beef with black bean sauce on rice, and I tell them to make it spicy. Their spicy shrimp is also really good. I haven't tried their noodle dishes yet... Maybe next time. The place isn't all that attractive and there is a damp odour that eminates especially as you get closer to the washrooms. So just go for the food...not for the ambience.

Like most really good Chinese restaurants, it's about the food, not the decor. We went, on the recommendation of a Chinese Tai Chi student of mine, for the steamed fish. It was, naturally, great. We also ordered the Garlic Eggplant, which is labelled "Hot" but in fact can be ordered low, medium or high. It too was very good (and enough for four). We'll be back to try some of the other dishes.
