Very good egg soup

Very good food and egg soup. Service is great and ambience is also good. If you like Chinese food and you are near la jolla then just go for it.

Next to the Embassy Suits La Jolla is P.F. Chang located, so we decided to have dinner there. In short: Large selection of Chinese dishes, good service and great taste. Perfect restaurant to visit.

We ate here because it was conveniently located outside of our hotel. We ordered a bowl of wonton soup as a starter. The soup hardly had any water chestnuts, shrimp or chicken. It was basically broth and 6 wontons. Dinner was good. The service was slow for having only a half filled house. My wife never received the wine she... More

If you ask for spicy, you get spicy! Good experience overall, recommended. Especially convenient pick if you stay at nearby Embassy Suites La Jolla and wish to break out of the hotel just a minute's walk away.

Not in La Jolla proper, but opposite ot UTC in the 'golden triangle. You really can't go wrong here with the food, it is all excellent. The parking is convenient as well. So, if you are wandering around the East side of I-5 try here for lunch or dinner. You will not be disappointed.

We hadn't booked, and went on the off chance for lunch. Fortunately we didn't have to wait longer than a few minutes. This restaurant chain looks very impressive and expensive looking from the outside, but their prices are reasonable. The food was delicious and cooked to perfection. The only minus was that the service was a bit slow. As we... More

If you plan to eat here between 6 and 8PM, be prepared to wait or call ahead for reservations. Excellent food. Have eaten in several in various locations and this location doesn't disappoint. Good service and hot/fresh food. Best hot and sour soup around. I had the Kung Pao Scallops. Cooked to perfection.

This location always seems to have good food and a somewhat busy atmosphere. That's nice if you feel like having people around. I've never been disappointed with the reasonably-priced food or service, after a number of visits.
