When we walked into this empty restaurant on a chilly, rainy day, the hostess seated us as close to the door as possible. I asked to be seated in a warm spot, but there was no such thing, since they didn't even have the heat on. The tiniest of heaters was provided, which did absolutely nothing. We kept our coats...

If you are in the mood for Chinese food while in Pacifica, then Tams is the place to go. A bit more expensive than normal fare but worth the extra cash. Their honey walnut shrimp is amazing.

Good food, best Chinese food, so far around here. Wish they were open on Monday. The lady and man at the front desk are sometimes irritated, maybe cause their busy. The waiter smells like he's been smoking sometimes. Other than that friendly atmosphere. No waiting.

This is the place for a nice dinner if you're staying at Pacifica RV Resort. It is a short walk from the park. Great food great drinks. Well worth the money.

Excellent food - we went there twice during our one week of vacation. Relaxing classical music during dinner.

Not the greatest Chinese food and very expensive. We ordered a combination chow mein, sweet and sour chicken and 2 sodas. The bill was $45. I thought that was a little steep. The beef in the chow mein tasted weird so I didn't eat it. The sweet and sour chicken was better. I would not go back.

Almond chicken with loads of noodles. Tofu and veggies. It was very good. White table cloths and good service. In a strip mall next to Safeway and near the San Francisco R.V. Resort.
