Travel to China all the time. Definitely this is Szechuan food in Vista, CA. The Chinese staff obviously knew what they were cooking and it wasn't American Chinese. If you do not know Chinese food, or are not adventurous and do not like spice this may not be the best place for you. The facility is basic but the service and food are quite good.

We went as a group of 4 adults and 1 teenager. We decided to get a soup and 3 entres to share. The owners also gave us 3 "tasters" of unique things you probably wouldn't try such as a seeweed salad and tripe. The soup was very plentiful. Our guests thought it was the best won ton soup they ever had. I thought it was ok, but it was filling. We also tried the frog legs. We all thought it was too peppery, and too much work to get to the meat. The beef and broccoli was good, but we all agreed that the kung pow chicken was the best we have ever had. It had a very unique flavor. Definitly a lot of ginger. There were a lot of asian families eating here, so I took that as a good sign. Our bill came to $50 for 5 of us and we went home full. I would definitly go back again for the chicken and beef, and to try something else we didn't get this visit.
