“Better than PF Changs for sure!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2011

So much better than PF Changs. Smaller, better food and in the cute Village of Del Mar 'Plaza'. The ahi appetizer is very good and comes with a wasabe drizzle that I can't get enough of . The cashew chicken with green beans added is my favorite but whatever is ordered with whom ever I am with always gets eaten up entirely. Service is super fast and has always been efficient. I can't say the servers are very engaging but I'm not there to talk to them. As long as they are polite and efficient they are doing a good job. Only complaint - never any left-overs!

“Fantastic meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2011

While I was skeptical about the claims that this is the best Chinese food in the San Diego area, the proof is in the food. Even thought the restaurant is understated, the food is not. The menu offers many unique choices and I don't think you could go wrong with any of them.

“Great allergan friendly Chinese food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2010

We ate at this restaurant multiple times on a recent trip to San Diego. The food was wonderful and they were able to meet our special dietary needs. Being able to watch the sunset was an added bonus.

“Best Chinese food in San Diego county”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2009

Inventive, gorgeous and beautiful dishes. Not at all the standard Mandarin fare. Try the Calamari and the Ahi for sure, but everything is very good.
