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!

Asside from the Ocean views spied as driving through on P.C.H., this hideaway is one of my fav. spots in Dana Point. The staff always remembers you, the food is spot on, and the price is more than fair for the generous portions of, well, fare. We love the Pumpkin soup, Orange/Sesame Chicken, Sizzling Soup, and Cream Cheese Won Tons.... More

I was craving Chinese after a long day of working while trying to be on vacation. We wondered how good this place could be observing its strip mall location, but, as titled, this was a nice surprise! Delicious Sesame chicken, Kitchen beef (beef & broccoli), and combo chow mein. The pan fried dumplings were excellent too. My son tried the... More

The Little Asian Kitchen surprises with its ambience and genuinely well-prepared food. The menu is a mix of Asian delights including Moo Goo Gai Pan and Pad Thai. It also offers fresh soups, such as the fun Sizzling Rice soup, which is a combination of chicken and fresh vegetables (including fresh snow peas), which is delicious and great for the... More

Have been to this nice little Chinese restaurant a dozen times over the past few years. Started off really well with smiling caring service and delicious plate lunches. The service has since leveled off a bit, but the dishes are consistently good. Have been here several times for dinner, but it does not measure up to the nice simple lunch... More

The star of the show was Steak and Shrimp. The beef was tender and perfectly seasoned. The shrimp was fresh and perfectly prepared. This plate and the Little Kitchen are definite repeats. The Tofu with mixed vegetables was also delicious. Rounding out an excellent meal was the "Kitchen Chicken", another good choice. I am pretty sure that anything you order... More

Dined here last night after a walk up from the Doheny Surf festival. Being locals, we were happy this place opened. There are other Chinese restaurants in the area, but none are open late night. Wonton soup, walnut shrimp and lemon chicken were our selections Enough for the three of us and leftovers for next day lunch. I have dined... More

I highly recommend this place. We all got the basics - hot and sour soup, pumpkin soup (not so basic, but excellent), Kung Pao, sesame and house chicken, beef and broccoli. Very large portions and very hot and tasty. Server and staff were very helpful and attentive.
