Delicious Chinese Food

This place was suggested by one of my nephews who is just going to be thirteen. We had really delicious food and the helpings were generous. The owners kept coming and checking up on us to find out if everything that we had ordered was okay. All in all it was a very good experience and it has been... read more

I have been going here for years with my family and is the only Chinese I eat! Food, service and atmosphere. Service is quick and it's not dinner until Grandma comes out to greet us!

Advertised as Mandarin cuisine, this restaurant actually covers a broad range of different Chinese regional cooking. Over the years (it's been around since the '60's), it has developed its own take on regional Chinese dishes. For example, it's Hong Kong style (crispy noodles) seafood chow mein was good, but not executed in the same way as a typical restaurant specializing... More

Costa Mesa's best Chinese restaurant. Always a warm welcome and hug from our "Chinese Grandma" except for today, she is visiting China "to get new recipes ". Food is always good, service efficient, but you will never get a smile. I miss our " Grandma ".

The outside of this restaurant does not give it justice. The service was very good, the interior typical Chinese with a out of round tables enough space for a big family. We went there with friends who knew the place for a long time. We ordered the rice soup, dim sums, diefferent dishes for everybody. It is a well rounded... More

I loved this place. Nice folks and tasty food. I had the Orange peel chicken. It was outstanding! The portion size was good too. Perfect amount of sweet & spicy. I wasn't fond of the egg rolls but I am a picky eater. The host and the waiters were very friendly and checked in with me frequently. It's a family... More

This restaurant has been around for years and we have been there many times. No matter how long it has been since the last time we were there, the owner greets you like family and remembers you. The food is always excellent.

This is an institution in Costa Mesa and the food is outstanding. There may be some people of Chinese origin who won't find it "authentic" but I have been in lots of Chinese restaurants around the world and this is as good or better than any of them. It is family oriented and the service is great. The prices are... More
