nice place, decent food

The property is large, very nice and clean. Food is pricey for portion size and quality. Most dishes came out in a few minutes from ordering and were a bit soggy like it was pre made and then microwaved.

Great restaurant for Asian cuisine in Santa Maria, CA. Always have had great service and food! We usually eat there whenever we are visiting family in Santa Maria.

Where do I begin? How about.... the 60 lunch specials they offer. And add 8 butterflied shrimp for an additional 2.50 or 3 spring rolls for 1.50. My favorites.... Beef With Spicy Garlic Sauce, or Walnut Crispy Shrimp. I read a past review where the customer complains that the Hot and Sour Soup is too big of an order thus... More

Not a picky family at all! Frequent the local chain gourmet spot in town all the time. Ordered three different entrees(all of which you could find at any Chinese resturaunt) and all three were disgusting! Tasted like frozen food reheated, which I could over look, had it tasted good at all!! Not only was the food inedible (tossed almost everything)... More

If you are looking for Chinese Food in Santa Maria with quality on a consistent basis...learn how to cook Chinese. Very disappointing on a recent trip with many items sold out. Sometimes it has been flavorful but most times ... last trip they put pot stickers in the wonton soup...????? Now our Sushi...that is excellent at most every venue.

My husband ordered a small bowl of Hot and Sour Soup. It was almost a quart of soup, way too much. Worse than that it was so overly spiced with chili that he couldn't eat more than a bite or two. On the other hand, the chicken and green beans was delicious as was the beef and mushrooms. The rice... More

The food was great but the service was poor. There were only two other parties in the restaurant so I don't understand why the service was so poor. Everyone at our table enjoyed their meal and I would return.

Lots of choices, food is prepared when you order. Great service. We are always greeted like the wait staff knows us. Even the Chef comes out to see how we liked the food.
