We requested dishes without sugar or sweet sauce and the staff member assured us the dish would not be sweet. We received a dish- it was sweet and we could not eat it. We spoke with the manager who kindly explained all dishes with brown sauce at their restaurant are a bit sweet in taste. We thanked him for the... More

The location in a strip mall leaves much to be desired, but this place has the best Chinese in the area. Delicious walnut shrimp and good fried rice, most of the entrees are very tasty. Service is always good and quick.

The Little Kitchen Asian Café is located in a shopping center. It is hard to tell from the outside if it is open or not- so walk up and try the door. Most likely it is open. The food is good. The service is attentive and the prices are reasonable. My wife and I usually have lunch there on a... More

Not only was the food from here great, we ordered it over the phone and were told that it would be about 40 minutes.....15 minutes later our doorbell rang and there stood our dinner! Large portions, served HOT - not the normal delivery chill! Beef & broccoli, sweet & sour chicken - all fabulous. Cant wait to order from here... More

The Little Kitchen is now on my MUST list. We had the Black Pepper Steak with Shrimp and the Kung Pao Vegetables. The sauce in each dish was outstanding and they were sooooo tasty. This place is now my favorite over China Max in San Diego.

Let me be clear - Chinese is one of my least favorite of ethnic foods. I always try to avoid it and when I can't, I will continuously complain about it. Well, that did not happen here.. I was dragged into this place, wasn't sure what to expect, went in there with a grumpy face but came out with a... More

We ate here on our last night of vacation and wish we had discovered it earlier in the week. It was wonderful food! We felt it was affordable for our family of 6 (we ordered 3 entrees and shared!) We normally don't order beef entrees, however, with all the nice reviews we decided to give it a try and we... More

this place quickly became my favorite for Asian food outside of San Francisco. the restaurant owner, Chris, is very helpful in selecting what he considers the best of the house, the beef. and he is right, its excellent!
