Nothing to rave about. Unfriendly waitstaff. Average plus food. Yet crowded so some people must think it is worth it.

Very few quality Chinese restaurants in South County with the exception of this place. Still prefer to venture to Irvine for top quality Chinese, but if you don't like to drive, this is the place to visit.

Beautiful restaurant with excellent service. We had four in our party and ordered four different items so we could share. All were delicious! It was Chinese New Year so they were very busy, but our server was very attentive throughout our meal. Highly recommended by all of us!

This restaurant has great service. The menu has a lot of choices. The food was served quickly and was very tasty. There was always a server if you needed anything. Also, the portions are large. If I lived out there it would be a regular stop. Great job.

For Chinese food, you will not find any better. Usually a 10 to 20 minute wait but that is because the locals all eat there and know how good it is! Waiters, all men, wear a Tux without the jacket, shirt, bow tie, vest. awe have been going here for years. Introduce yourself to Shane, one of the nicest man... More

I you like Chinese food this is the spot for you. Nice dinning area & lots of great dishes to choose from. The food is very authentic & the service is great too.Great for kids & groups too. Very clean, but parking can be a bit challenging if their busy.
