Shrimp and Beef plate was to perfection. Staff was friendly and fast. Didn't have to wait long to get the food.

Chinese makes a regular appearance on our dining rotation. In Dana Point, there isn't a lot of choice. But of the two majors, we've made this our favorite. The other, white tablecloth place is good as well, but we find the dishes here taste fresher.

the service is always good and we always love the food. The atmosphere is friendly and homey. Like the food the best. Nothing I don't like.

Wonderful experience all around. Great food...favorite was a fish dish with delicious sauce and asparagus. Great service with very nice people. We were only in the area for a few days and ate there twice. Will definitely go back if we are in the area.

Loved the specialty dish Kitchen Beef. Tender and slightly sweet. Dish was so large I took half home for dinner. Service is very good. Convenient just above Dana Point Harbor.

Living in Dana Point for 30 years there was a good local Chinese restaurant. It went bad with poor food, high prices and a lack of customer service ethic. The Little Kitchen Asian cafe opened and all is good again. Very clean, prompt service and reasonable prices. what else would you ask for. How about creative dishes and an early... More

This is not your run of the mill Chinese Restaurant. This is a broad spectrum Asian cafe. It's not huge but carryout is a big business. Love all of their food but the teriyaki bowl was a huge hit for me. I had it over brown rice with chicken. Also their Szechuan Beef. This is one of our favorite Friday... More

We took a break from business by driving down to Dana Point to have dinner with Hubby's old friend, the Tae Bo Guru BB. They met during the karate tournaments very long time ago. He introduced us to this restaurant. We had a very long dinner by trying many dishes and taking time eating. BB also introduced us to the... More

Spotlessly clean small restaurant. Sit by the window if you can, or in one of the booths. Very good service. Nice thick paper napkins. Have eaten there a half dozen times and enjoyed it each time. Hot and sour soup is excellent and they give you a generous cup size. Pan fried chicken dumplings are delicious with the ginger-soy sauce... More

My wife and I eat here often. We recently had their lunch specials of Chicken with Vegetables and Garlic Chicken. I had the Hot and Sour Soup and she had the salad. My soup could have been a little hotter (temperature), but both were delicious just like the entrees. Seating was prompt, service was good and the food was great,... More
