Friendly staff; variety of dishes and always has specials. There is also takeout. Been eating here for over 12 years; always a good experience. Portions are large which allows take home.

How could you put fake crab sticks in a crab based soup?
How can you screw up chow mein?
The fried rice was tasteless and dry, the other main course dish was greese, and more greeze.
We threw it all away. Sad but true

This tiny restaurant up on Santa Barbara's "Mesa" in a bustling shopping center is a real find. Owned by the same couple for many years, it is very hospitable, warm, and friendly. All of the staff are excellent. On our last visit we had War Won Ton soup (Won Ton soup with added shrimp, chicken, and veggies, which could have been a meal in itself). Also Moo Shu with duck which was simply delicious. To top it all off, we had Shrimp in Lobster Sauce, which wasn't on the menu that night but which they managed to serve us. Of course rice and hot tea are included. All in all, it is the best Chinese restaurant in town, and far better than the "glitzier" ones.
