We almost didn't go here due to the terrible reviews on Yelp. We went on a Saturday evening so they were busy. The food was good, had some dishes we hadn't tried before and were satisfied with the food and service.

Nice little place on the main street in Coronado. Some interesting dishes. Love the white fish Vietnamese style. Good deals on sushi during Happy Hour though only one beer is offered at the discounted price.

The food was slightly above average, but our server needs some training. Our appetizer came out quickly, but then our food didn't come for so long that the people next to us asked us what we ordered! They ordered at the some time and were done and paying their bill when we finally asked about our food. My guess is... More

Better than expected. We enjoyed a quick casual meal. Our server was very friendly. We recommend the shrimp skewers with lemon sauce appetizer. Entrees were pad Thai noodles and Cantonese noodles with beef. Dishes were large portions, fresh ingredients and spiced just right.

Visited after a day on the beach. First impressions weren't great as we stood at the restaurant entrance waiting to be seated while the staff stood chatting and gave us the occasion glance without acknowledging us. The place could do with a good clean. Food on the floor and grubby hand stains visible on the glass partitions. My wife ordered... More

We saw the restaurant when exploring and made a reservation (not required). The menu includes sushi and a range of Chinese dishes (including several duck dishes). Everything was tasty and well-prepared. We were very satisfied. The waitress was also excellent -- attentive, efficient, and pleasant. All in all, a very nice meal in a pleasant dining room.

We ate here one evening when staying at The Del Coranado which is a 5 minute walk away.What San Diego is missing on the restaurant scene is Chinese and Asian restaurants. Only one found in San Diego and we decided not to go in based on first impression. This restaurant has a nice look about it inside and outside in... More

We ate a few times here and had take out another time while visiting Coronado for a week. On the corner, off the main drag, Orange, a few blocks away from the grand dame, Hotel Del Coronando, this is a nice, friendly restaurant serving good asian food and sushi. Busy on the weekends, we were always made to feel at... More

We had a very enjoyable meal here one night; and the fish (sushi / sahimi) was soooo fresh. My wife is from Europe and had Pacific yellow fin tuna here for the first time ever -- and is still talking about it. Went on a Saturday night (non happy hour I recall) and spent about $45 w/tip for a basic... More
