“Great Chinese Food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We got takeout from this place because the place we wanted to go to was closed. What a stroke of luck! It's true that it didn't seem like the air conditioning was on or was on very low, which is odd in El Cajon, but since we were getting the food to go that didn't matter to us. We ordered six different entrees and even though we changed out mind a few times our order was perfect. It was packed in a box so we didn't have to worry about anything spilling and the sauces for several of the dishes were packaged separately so the food didn't get soggy. Everyone in the group agreed the food was all good. It was hot and tasted fresh. And we got free egg rolls and crab rangoon because we spent over $50, which was a nice surprise. One note, the plain fried rice that came with our dinner was really plain. No eggs or veggies at all.

We will definitely be returning here. It is closer to our house and the food was great!

“yummy!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

WE go here often! The food is great, it's not too expensive, it's never very busy. The only improvement would be more staff during dinner hours, sometimes there's only one person doing everything (except cooking!)

We really like the restaurant. My wife loves the honey walnut shrimp, and I'm pretty partial to the General Tao's chicken.
