Go To Chinese

This is our go-to place for Chinese food in Pacifica. It is solidly good, and they deal well with our gluten free issues and requests for broccoli.

The atmosphere was nice. Bright, clean and open floor plan. The people working the counter seemed really sweet. We ordered food to-go, and couldn't wait to dig in when we got home. One bite in, and it became very clear, the food is on the low end. Very greasy, the chicken had some weird chunky bites. All in all, we... More

I always get takeout at Kennys while I am visiting family in Pacifica. This time while deciding on a feast of items, I saw a salt and pepper entree, chicken looked great, got the salmon and it was super, super duper, and everyone agreed. The vegetable fried rice was GREAT. The cream cheese and crab puffs were SO YUMMMMMY!!! Sweet... More

Great service, but our food was just OK. The soup, sweet and sour pork were good, but the broccoli beef was mostly cold. The eggrolls seemed a bit oily. Hopefully just an off night.

It seems this place is never empty. Great Chinese food and diner options too. The owner makes her wontons by hand everyday and hosts field trips for the kids. It's a neighborhood hang out and very affordable.

Although the food isn't as good as Tam's at the other end of P-town, it's a lot less expensive and definitely decent. Less meat in the dishes, and more sauce, but that's fine with me because I love sauce and rice. The boring, but clean and functional, facility is more than made up for by the friendly service. The Chinese... More

Although the restaurant is light, staff friendly, portions above average -- the Chinese dishes we had tasted more like they were cooked in a Midwestern home kitchen. The spicy beef w/garlic and the cashew chicken both tasted as though they had been cooked as a stew and ladled out instead of cooked in a wok quick and hot. The quality... More

And we're off to a pretty good start for my first visit here. A really good Chinese food place in Pacifica. Who'da guessed? The acid test for me for a first time is Beef Chow Fun. Normally, if this is well done, the chow fun is not too stuck together, nor is it oily, the beef is tender and the... More
