Host to a vast Chinese centered grocery store that is amazing for a wide variety of ethnic specialties, and a few absolutely delicious restaurants. The garden was recently redone and is an absolutely beautiful place to stroll, especially for anyone nearby with corporate lunch breaks, but can easily become drowned by the nearby freeway-exit traffic. The large number of vacancies... More

I was a big fan and supporter of the Chinese cultural center when it first opened; however, times have changed and I think it needs something to bring back the crowds. Unfortunately, the city no longer is able to have its annual Chinese celebration here.

I've traveled to this small shopping center many times. I always love the pond and garden around the building as well as the grocery story and the small trinket shop, however, the years have not been kind to this small cultural oasis. Now, most of the building is empty and what is left is starting to show the lack of... More

There is an interesting Chinese grocery store, about 5 restaurants of which 4 are Chinese. Mostly vacant spaces.

This little hidden jewel is a wonderful place to find unusual gifts, authentic Asian gifts, jewelry and art. There is a Ranch Market inside this area where you can pick up ingredients for authentic Asian food. I loved visiting the shops and listening to the music that was playing in the stores. I picked up a CD myself and can... More

From the outside, a pleasant stroll thru authentic Chinese scholars style garden. Designed as a walk thru educational display with info signs and statues of Asian mythological characters. A 10 min walk and you seen it all. The shopping mall has a good market, but few of anything else. A small restaurant with a good Dim sum crowd. Dinner not... More
