the food is ok, but it's small dish, so we got less food than in most of the other Chinese restaurant. when asked the manager, he said 90% of the guests complained that the food is too much!

In my opinion, this is really excellent Chinese food, especially considering that it is in Solvang. The bar is really festive, and great place to mingle with tourists and locals.

The menu choices of this restaurant are typical of most Chinese restaurants. This is not to say that the food is poor in quality; only that you can fine the same items in almost every Chinese restaurant. The Wor Won Ton Soup was delicious and a great comfort food, especially when the temperatures aside were quite cold. The negative about... More

This place was crowded late evening the day after Christmas. We ordered Szechuan shrimp curry, fried rice, hot-n-sour soup and chicken chow-mein. All the dishes tasted delicious and were certainly better than several other Chinese restaurants we have tried. The only reason I can't give a 5-star is because of their service. While the first person managing the counter (looked... More

We were referred here by the front desk staff at the hotel we stayed at, the Kronborg hotel, & it was delicious! We got in late & this is probably the only open restaurant open after 9pm. It hit the spot! They have the best fried rice & chow mein! I recommend everyone who is looking for a late bite... More

The lunchtime special was terrific value, with a wanton soup, egg roll, fried wanton, rice and an entrée for less than US$10. Our sweet & sour pork and Szechuan chicken entrees were tasty.

Very enjoyable lunch. Air conditioning was a godsend as it was a particularly hot day. Friendly clean restaurant and substantial menu with all you would expect on offer. We enjoyed fair priced bottle of Californian wine. I (we) would definitely return again

If you like abuse, this is the place. The older female bartender is a certifiable drunk. We ended up here because it is literally one of two places in all of Solvang that is open past 10pm. The bartender was apparently off-duty and getting drunk on the patio with other patrons. At one point, she stood up and started berating... More
