It's in a strip mall off of tavern road in alpine. Not much to look at inside and in an attempt to cater to as many people as possible the menu in a broad collection of Chinese and Japanese items. Food is generally over salted and over sauced. We had teriyaki chicken, avocado rolls and some noodles. Chicken was salty and drowned in sauce, avocado rolls were good, noodles were very bland. From looking at the rest of the menu I am guessing that they have changed the recipes to try to accommodate american tastes instead of making real chinese dishes. Although I didnt sit at the sushi bar it seemed to be a good business. You would be better served to go 2 blocks over and go the ahi sushi restaurant.

Trinity and her crew put out some serious sushi. I have eaten sushi all over San Diego and this is my absolute favorite place. Their other Chinese food is great too if you are not in the mood for Sushi. This is Alpine's best kept secret!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They had a varied menu- sushi to chicken teriyaki and other traditional favorites. I had egg flower soup and cashew chicken which was very good.
