Good food. Best is Salt and Pepper chicken wings. Very crowded after 11AM, and somewhat crowded after 5PM. Come early, the food is great. Many Asian folks eat here. Great friendly staff. A little hard to find if you are not from the area. Find driving directions. Reviewed this place 2 years ago, and now it's A+. If you have... More

This is our favorite Chinese food restaurant in San Diego! The food is great and the catering is a crowd pleaser and reasonably priced. I drive 1/2 hour each way to get food and it is worth the drive. Everything is good, but favorites are salt and pepper anything and upside down noodles.

A good restaurant. Crowded at lunch, get there early. Lunch specials are OK. Great Salt and Pepper Chicken Wings all day long (These are GOOD!). Get there early because parking can be a problem. Mostly asian neighborhood. Locals love the place. Have been going here for about 14 years.

This is great chinese food, they are packed on lunch time, and you can call ahead to do your pick up orders. They are fast and have it ready in about 15 minutes. Try their salt and pepper chicken with fried rice it is the best!!!!

I wouldn't know about this restaurant if I hadn't been told by the locals. The menu is huge but, my personal favorite is the Salted Pepper Chicken Wings. I've never found anything to compare in any other city and the wings are outstanding. In fact,on Super Bowl Sunday, they had so many orders that they had to take orders outdoors... More

Have always done take-out. Whether you call in or order there, it takes about 10-15 minutes and you are out the door! Good food and fast service. Recommend anything that is salted pepper! Even the small party tray feeds a lot of people. If you are not sure which size to order, just ask, they are very helpful!

Always leave full. The lunch special is the best value anywhere.
