We had an amazing meal in this restaurant. They were so friendly and welcoming, we chose the set menu and they advised us to reduce our order as we’d have too much food. The quantities were huge and the food was fresh and very quick.

There are quite a few Restaurant choices on the Monterey Peninsula. And, as you can imagine, many are Seafood style and/or Steak choices. The food is plentiful, the prices are fair.

Like most really good Chinese restaurants, it's about the food, not the decor. We went, on the recommendation of a Chinese Tai Chi student of mine, for the steamed fish. It was, naturally, great. We also ordered the Garlic Eggplant, which is labelled "Hot" but...More
