“Lunch at Rendezvous”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

Don't be surprised by the name -- it is a Chinese restaurant located in Del Mar a few blocks from the beach. The food was very good -- probably the best walnut shrimp I've ever had. It is a little pricey but I felt it was well worth it. The restaurant itself was not typical Chinese decor but very contemporary. The service was great and the waiter was very friendly. I liked that there was free validated parking. It was a ladies luncheon so we were there for quite awhile but never felt that we were rushed to leave.

“Good Chinese Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

We had the lettuce wraps, very good, the wonton soup, also very good. These two had proper proportion sizes. The mixed veggies and the Kung Pao Chicken both seemed to be small in size and the Kung Pao lacked the regular "kick" and that kung pao should have.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

Getting our daughter settled back into UCSD is always fun, but we do enjoy trying new places which really makes this trip enjoyable coming from Louisville, KY,

We had one of the best Chinese meals in a long, long, time.
The server was very good and was surprised that they do have a nice wine list since most Chinese restaurants don't.

We started with the duck spring rolls that were wonderful. Our daughter got the pot stickers that were gone in a minute. The sweet and sour chicken was the best we have had and the desert was perfect.

The prices are very reasonable.

We sat outside which was quite nice. They do have heaters outside if you so desire.

Enjoy!

“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013

Came here for lunch and must i say all the plates were great and the portions were just right for an adult. I ordered the kung pao tenderloin steak which wasnt spicy for me but the flavors were amazing. I would definitely come back next time im in town.

“Great Chinese food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

Had 4 different dishes, noodle, sweet & sour chicken, braised beef, and ma po tofu.
All 4 had unique tastes and were all good. The brown and white rice that comes with the dishes is made
Just right. Definitely would recommend.
