Description: A great Restaurant with no MSG added. The sweet items (like Sweet and sour pork, or orange chicken) are just the right balance of sweet and spicy. Easily the best Chinese food in Salinas.

Chinese food can be hit or miss. Sometimes the soup tastes like it was put through the dishwasher first and sometimes the vegetables are limp and overcooked (or under dish-washed). This place was a delight. The chicken wings were some of the best I've had; crispy but not over battered or over fried. The ginger beef had sensational flavor with... More

We stopped in Salinas for 2 nights and ordered from the restaurant. This was some of the best Chinese food we have ever had. The food was very fresh, tasty and beautifully presented. The portions were huge, and so we have decided to eat the rest at our hotel tomorrow night.

During our time in Salinas, we stumbled upon Eagle Restaurant. Me and my husband love Chinese food so we thought we would give it a shot. We ordered Char Siu Bao, pan fried and steamed dumplings for starters and we shared our Beef Chow Fun entrée. The food was wonderful! Reminds me of the time when I was in Hawaii... More

It's not very WOW in decor nor does it have overly outgoing staff but the food is GREAT. I love the lemon grass chicken and sizzling rice soup.

Our weekly place for a fast lunch that isn't too expensive. They've been in Oldtown for a long time and the owners greet you like a long lost friend even on your first visit. Eat there or take it with you if you're in a hurry. Chicken & Shrimp chow mein is my favorite item but the menu is very... More

It was refreshing to find a Chinese restaurant that had an extensive vegetarian menu and which understood the vegetarian also meant not having seafood or eggs. The staff were very familiar with what they could make and could not make that was vegetarian and the service was very friendly and fast. The food was excellent and the prices where not... More

I ate here based upon trip advisor recommendations. The restaurant is located in an older building. The food is served hot, basic and tasty. It does not remind me of the traditional Chinese restaurants I am used to but comes close. I had the Mau Poa Tofu Shrimp and Hot and Sour Soup. Both were decent. It you are in... More

Great tasting and fresh. Don't be fooled by the "hole in the wall" atmosphere. This is solid chinese food and the service was great. The tables, walls, and floor were clean. Totally satisfied and would visit again.

This place has reasonable and tasty food for a good price. The atmosphere is moderate, service (too?) fast and the restroom not fresh.. For a quick and cheap meal it's a good option, but don't go for the ambiance. And try and avoid the restroom
