I've only eaten there once, so maybe my choices were poor. But I was not impressed with the food. Easy location

This was our first meal here in years. Used to think it was good, but average. This time, everything was noticeably flavorful and well-crafted with good, fresh ingredients.

Enjoy a weekday CHINESE lunch for $3.95--not a typo error. Located at 3555 Clares across from the 41st Ave. Mall close to the surfing mecca "Santa Cruz." Try the pork chow mein, served with a bowl of hot/spicy soup, then a big plate of pork...More
