Though I have lived in the area all my life I just found this little place so gave it a try. It is a small shopping center on the corner of La Mesa Boulevard and Glenn street and frankly hard to see from the street. Atmosphere is friendly and the menu is extensive, eight pages. They offer a mix of... More

Quiet location in a strip mall. Pleasant decor. Very friendly and helpful wait staff. Huge menu. This is a great place to drop in for a good lunch at a good price. We had the fried tofu mango entree and it was well prepared, fresh, not too much tofu and it was prepared correctly so that it was crispy and... More

Very tasty food. The family dinners are a good value. I couldn't pick my favorite dish, but they do have the best Hot and Sour soup I've ever had. The dishes are plentiful even the lunch specials. It's a favorite local Chinese restaurant. Closed Mondays.

I attended this celebration with two other Red Hat groups. The experience was charming and fun as we had a Chinese "dragon" dance in celebration of the Year of the Monkey and the service and food selections were very nice. A truly fun, uplifting experience that I do recommend.

The lunch specials are great. The only concern is the décor is pretty updated and worn. The good makes up for that. The hot and sour soup is the best.

We recently ordered take-out for 17 and found the food good but not remarkable. I think it would have been better if we dined there as by the time we got home the broccoli in the beef and broccoli was over done. The kung pao chicken was very mild, not spicy like I am used to. Both the hot and... More

Food is bad. Taste all canned and old. Not as pleasant as they use to be. Same old taste to everything they serve.

This restaurant serves Thai, Chinese, Japanese and Pan Asian. Menu is extensive. Food is very good but be prepared to wait because it's cooked to order .

I ordered take out from here for New Years Eve Dinner. I showed up 30 Minutes later and it was good to go. Food was great, plenty for the four of us who ate. I would definitely recommend eating here, and will be back again when I feel the urge for some Kung Pao Chicken. A Happy Customer = )
