Above Avg, but

Stopped for a quick lunch, the were very friendly and food came quick. BUT when checking out they mistakenly switched credit cards. Most likely an honest mistake, but check your charges.

Went for an early dinner. Had 2 person dinner with Mongolian beef and Embassy string bean pork. Very tasty and filling. This place has been in Santa Maria for 33 years! Spoke to the owner David. Will definitely come back again. Want to have the lunch special next time.

We eat here at least once per month and we're never disappointed. The food is very, very good and the waitresses are just super. Love the tall blonde Asian babe--she's a knockout. The food is always good, very reasonable prices and very, very good service. It's a treat to eat here.

It is... More

We ordered Chick lo mein, Gen. chick, broccoli in oyster, duck, sweet and sour shrimp and special house shrimp. Overall the food was good but not great. Limited Asian in Santa Maria and this may explain such a high... More

There were four in our party and one of us specifically ordered a vegetarian lo mein, however when it came it had pieces of chicken in it which would probably indicate it was prepared with the same equipment as the meat dishes. after discovering this we informed the waitstaff and she took it back to the kitchen, the owner or...
