My favorite Chinese restaurant

This large restaurant has a very complete menu, and everything I've tried is excellent. They also deliver, which for locals like myself, is wonderful. We have them deliver to us at least twice a month, and for about $20, we have a huge meal for two with enough left over for lunch the next day.

We eat a lot of Asian food but we were presently suprised by the high quailty, beautiful vegetables and wonderful sauces. The orange chicken was... More

My father lived in Watsonville until about 2008. We used to eat at this restaurant quite often for lunch on weekends. We always enjoyed the food here. I was passing through Watsonville during lunch time and decided to go back. Since this was Christmas day, I was surprised they were even open. I recognized some of the same workers as... More

$8.00 delivery charge for a hotel patron across the street?! Ridiculous! On top of the delivery charge, you still tip the driver so avoid delivery if you want to keep some money in your pocket.

been here a couple times. A good place to go for Chinese food. ambiance is OK. Can be a little loud. You get your own private little room. Well you get a tight little room with a beaded door. Service is OK and food is good. I usually get the three flavor delight.Prices are average. Haven't ever been disappointed when... More
