If you are up for Chinese food, this is the place.

Excellent for lunch or dinner. Lots of fish and vegetarian options. If you like Chinese food, you will like this place. Good service and very reasonable prices.

The rice was moist as well however they charge extra for it which is not common where I come from. They grow was merely average if not a little less than average in taste. The service... More

Nice selection of usual Americanized Chinese food. Soups can be ordered in individual portions. Reasonable selection for vegetarians.

We were so glad we went out of our way to eat here. The place is on a side street in Cambria and the building in the dark looked a little shady, but we completely satisfied with the service and the food was delicious. We really weren't interested in a steak dinner, mexican or seafood, so this chinese restaurant was... More

Great American Chinese food with all of the usual family dinner items. The Egg Foo Young is really good and the staff is very nice. They are not inexpensive

The food was good. We thought it was weird that rice was extra. It took a while for them to process the bill when we were done.

After walking all over downtown Cambria to try to see all the scarecrow (Scarecrow Festival is the whole month of October), it's time for dinner. We decided we will order to-go and bring our food at our hotel in San Simeon. The service was fast and the food was tasty. However, I find that the price is on the expensive... More
