The meals that came out were enough to feed a family of 6!!! It was just myself and my partner, however we took so much food back to our hotel cottage home. The food was very average portion size was extremely large.

We went to dinner here. The food was ok, but the service was very short staffed. Bathrooms were clean.

Service is fast and amazing. When we arrived, the waitress greeted us and said pick wherever you like (to sit). We did and right after she asked for our drinks. I had hot chocolate which was perfect and has a whip cream and my mom finished that cream. Dad got water with no ice and my mom got Wine. After... More

Of course, you don't go to an Asian place in Big Bear Lake. But, my kids really wanted miso soup and California rolls and it was their vacation too. So we took a risk. As they say "sometimes you eat the bear and sometimes the bear eats you". Even tough the waitress was young and new, she did not know... More

I have not been at this restaurant for around five years, and was glad to see it was still there. Atmosphere was ok, and it took awhile for our dinner to arrive. This was due to their being short staffed, and contending with a fair amount of take out orders. My girlfriend had some Sushi and stated it was delicious,... More

If you are expecting P.F. Changs, or Panda Inn, you will be disappointed. The food was okay, but nothing special. We were looking for Asian cuisine and this was about the only place we found listed. However, the portions were huge. We got Pad Thai with chicken as one of our entrees. There was enough for 4 people. Seriously! Not... More

We visited recently and were surprised that such a dirty place could pass inspection.. The food tasted like dirty burned oil and grease. It looked like they took it out of a fryer and dumped it on the plate. As for service, the cook served us and he looked as dirty as the food. The chicken fried rice tasted nasty... More

I have not had their other foods but I've been to Pong's for lunch and ordered the sushi. I thought it was very good and would definitely go back.

Came here for dinner on a weekend getaway. My husband I love thai and japanese food. I ordered chicken teriyaki over fried rice, and i didnt even recognize my dish. My rice was literally drenched in sauce...it looked more like slop, and the chicken was bland. My huband ordered shrimp tom yum. There was literally only two pieces of shrimp... More
