Good food, very reasonably priced. The dining room is very modest, but the fish is fresh, and the service is typical of a family Chinese restaurant. Great place to pop in for a bite.

We come to CA about once a year and eat here at least once a week. If you want to throw a lot of money at pretentious restaurants, California is your place. But every time we go here in the evenings there are six to...More
