Very nice local restaurant in Pacific Beach. Samll strip mall location with parking outside of the restaurant. Nice Asian decore with very limited seating inside and some seating outside. The food was very good. The Drunken Noodles was a little too spicy for me.

We actually ate here twice during our brief visit to PB. The food was terrific, prices reasonable, and the (very small) dining area had a warm feel. They did a great job with our Gluten Free needs as well.
