I've eaten Chinese food all over the USA and this one is at the top of the list. The food is tasty and consistent. Never had a bad meal. It's not fancy but always a welcome stop when I visit San Diego.

Visit during lunch hours for great prices and a LOT of food! We recommend the "platters" at lunch which include your main dish, salad and an egg roll or soup. We recommend: egg drop soup, kung pao sea bass and almond chicken. There is a...More
