Fresh Chinese

The times I have gotten food to go here, it's always been freshly made and great taste. Not heavy or overly seasoned like some places

My family was looking to get away from the hotel for a night and try a local restaurant. We found this Asian cafe in a strip mall a few miles from the Ritz. We were surprised there was a wait for a Thursday evening, but he restaurant was full and there were a handful of takeout orders as well. We... More

A healthier way for Chinese food ~ Needs a lot of spice! Even the sake was sweet. Good service and average ambience.

This place is the best for local Asian food!!! The best part is that they deliver locally! My wife and I used to eat here about once a week when we lived in Laguna Niguel, unfortunately we moved to Laguna Hills so are now out of range. Still, this place is worth the drive!

The won ton soup had a very light broth, but was loaded w won tons, fresh veggies and chicken which helped the dish be more flavorful. Soup Veggies included asparagus (score). The steamed pot stickers were good, the dipping... More

iT was a gooey floury substance. They must've run out of eggs and just used the coating and fried it. Believe me I've eaten in hundred of different places and it was terrible. We told our server and we ate too many bites of the veggies to get a different dish. The other people looked like the servings were huge.... More

My wife and I lunched at Little Kitchen Asian Cafe on a Friday afternoon. We were seated right away and given water. We ordered drinks with our meal. We had two lunch specials: chicken with cashews with hot and sour soup for me and orange zest chicken with salad for my wife. Two soups quickly arrived. We said that my... More

The Little Kitchen Asian Cafe is next to Rite Aid in a strip mall that also houses Ralphs. Don't let that fool you. It is a gem! This very casual restaurant has tables for 2 or 4 (can be made larger), an open kitchen with very busy cooks right next to the dining area, very friendly and familiar service, and... More

my boyfriend and I were probably one of the first customers to go to the little kitchen Asian café when they opened. We love the staff there and the food is always fresh. Our favorite is the wonton soup. We usually get a couple of entrées to share along with their fried rice. We are never disappointed and are so... More
