Was in love with the food - specialy the imperial shrimp dish-, the coziness of the place, the alertive and friendly staff, the neighborhood. Everything was great!

As I passed by this restaurant one mid-afternoon, I noticed a few tables were occupied and so I entered, thinking it must be a good place to dine. It was very mediocre, the food was not particularly warm and it certainly was not flavoursome. The air-con was blowing fiercely and I felt cold inside the restaurant. I did not enjoy... More

Our California friends recommended this place in Del Mar so the day before we fly back home, we decide it's time to try it. We start with yummy crunchy duck wraps and each of us selects one dish. In the end, we are pleased and have chosen a delicious range of tastes. Although I'm pushing for sweet and sour chicken,... More

The food is excellent and plentiful. But what stunned us were the wine prices. They have a wonderful selection of wines, ALL bottles were priced substantially less than other restaurants in the area. Our Thursday evening dinner also had a different wine special - buy one glass, get the second one for $.88. Yes, less than a dollar. We've never... More

A group of us, 5, chose this restaurant for dinner. We made a good selection. Parking is available behind the restaurant in a garage and they do validate for 1 hour. Nice selection of meals and we had a variety of selection along with a good wine list. We did not share, and some of us even had leftovers for... More

I went for lunch, I had Rendezvous chow main, it was all undercooked, unsafe to serve raw meat. I'll get something else next time

It's not Kung Pao Beef, it's Kung Pao tenderloin. And it's not sweet and sour shrimp, it's sweet and sour jumbo shrimp. It's very tasty Chinese food done with upscale ingredients at an upscale price.

The restaurant was full, but they found a table for us. It's best to make reservations rather than just walk in. Impressive wine and alcohol selection. As vegans, we were thrilled to have a full range of menu choices. The hot & sour soup and eggplant in clay pot were wonderful. The manager and server regularly checked to make sure... More

My mom took us here during our trip to CA. She raved about how good the food is and I must say I heartily agree. One thing to be aware of: this isn't a hole in the wall take out place and the prices reflect that. They are, in my opinion, very reasonable given the area and more upscale cuisine.... More

This is a Chinese restaurant that has authentic food at reasonable prices. Location in Del Mar is great for Ocean views. Comfortable with outside seating when weather is good. Service was great. I will definitely go again.
