We found Sam Woo shortly before moving away from Irvine, CA. We truly enjoyed the authenticity of their food. The service was a little less than spectacular but the quality made up for it.

We loved this place that we went twice while on this 5 day trip. One dish that I haven't seen in a long time was pork belly with taro. That was so well done! Great service and food.

As background: I'm Caucasian and my family and extended family is all Asian. So I went there with people who know about this type of food more so than I do. The place is always crowded and I can figure out why: the chicken we...More
