This is one of our favorite Chinese restaurants in San Diego. My parents are from Hong Kong and are picky about Chinese restaurants but they definitely enjoy coming here because the dishes are familiar to them and not Americanized. I can’t remember ordering a dish...More

We were staying at a nearby motel in Chula Vista and wanted to go somewhere nearby for dinner. We were told that most of the restaurants were Mexican restaurants or fast food. But, the motel clerk said, there’s a Chinese restaurant a couple of minutes...More

Up front I would say that if you like the typical Americanized Chinese food, this place is not for you. The cook is a serious Chinese trained chef who remains true to his roots. This restaurant has a modest look and somewhat of a family...More

Looks ok from the outside, nice layout inside, but the service and food were way below average. The customer service was average, the aroma inside the establishment was not pleasant and the food - sub-par. Not a pleasant dining experience.

No tablecloth and unpretentious, it is simply a great restaurant. Serving fresh seafood and other specialties. If you are into homemade Chinese dishes, ask for the daily specials, usually an old traditional recipe.

Place is clean (but could be better) Food is AWESOME. Love the rice sizzling soup. Their clams with black bean sauce is to die for along with honey walnut shrimp....everything ordered is tasty. They give you house dessert at end of your meal.

Golden City. A Chinese restaurant that came highly recommended over and over again. I've never actually had the chance to go down and check it out for myself. Until today. I like going in a little bit before any meal rush to be able to...More
