Very enjoyable lunch. Air conditioning was a godsend as it was a particularly hot day. Friendly clean restaurant and substantial menu with all you would expect on offer. We enjoyed fair priced bottle of Californian wine. I (we) would definitely return again

If you like abuse, this is the place. The older female bartender is a certifiable drunk. We ended up here because it is literally one of two places in all of Solvang that is open past 10pm. The bartender was apparently off-duty and getting drunk on the patio with other patrons. At one point, she stood up and started berating... More

Best Chinese food in town. Not always easy to get take out in the bar. Owner Phil is a good man that takes care of his employees.

Came to visit Solvang for the first time and stopped here for lunch. It took awhile to be seated but our waitress was really sweet. The food was decent, I ordered vegetable chow mien noodles and the veggies were quite hard. Other then that it was very tasty.

A Chinese restaurant in the middle of Danish country sounds weird. However this is a very good Chinese restaurant. The tables have white cloth, the decorations are very tasteful and you're mostly likely greeted by the owner a very friendly person. The food was very good. I've ordered a low salt dish and everything came without salt including the spring... More

Drove from Los Olivos to Solvang to find a restaurant open past 8:30 for dinner. Great find in this establishment which is open to midnight (probably to accommodate the Casino crowd). Typical Chinese features served ala carte or a combo meals at a good value. Food was tasty and had plenty to take home for lunch. Service was quick! Shrimp... More

We've been here a few times over the years and it's always been a good experience. You can get take out or dine in. We prefer to find a table in the bar area and enjoy the locals. All of our entrée choices have been good but I prefer the cashew chicken the most. Service has always been friendly and... More

We love spicy dishes - for lunch we ordered Prawn Szechwan with fried rice, egg roll. Wonton soup to start - it was bland not much flavor. Egg roll mostly cabbage or lettuce very greasy, fried rice plain, Szechwan sauce red, very different - not as flavorful as usual Szechwan sauce. Would encourage them to make some changes to improve... More
