Very good food and good price. Parking is on the street as little parking available at this restaurant. Located across the street from the movie house so dinner first and then the movie.

My wife and I go almost once a week and the food has always been good and fresh. I'd recommend the mushroom Moo Moo Gy Pan. Or the the Baby Bok Choy.

There is something that is timeless about this place. The GOOF remains an institution in the Beach. The food is good and very affordable. I have stopped by since my university days and I have always enjoyed the experience.
