I can't say that anything really stands out as different and unique while dining here. Overall, a pleasant experience if you are looking for Asian food while in San Diego. The service was attentive and adequate.

Don't you just hate it when your glass 'sticks' to the table. It makes everything just less enjoyable, not to mention gross. The restaurant is frequented by Asians, and I must admit that - when able to put aside the stickiness - the food was...More

We were looking for something different than the typical steak and french restaurants that there seemed to be a lot of around this area. Stumbled across this and so glad we did. Excellent quality Chinese, didn't have one bad dish. I would especially recommend the...More

As an owner of several restaurants I was appalled by the treatment my family received. Never so embarrassed by out of control employee working for a service company in my life. The manager Josh has got a lot to learn about restaurant management.

food tasted terrible, and there was so little of it. The lettuce wrap appetizer came with 4 small leaves of lettuce, when asked for more, we were bought 2. We asked if they had fried noodles and dick sauce and they weren't sure. They came...More

Cantonese chefs will make anything you like. Crab cheese wontons were fresh made. Lettuce wraps were good. Draft beers showed some effort, not just the all-hops standards. No cocktails on the patio though, according to staff the liquor license didn't include outside.
