Wow!! We were in Del Mar for a two day getaway and my husband saw the sign on this restaurant as we drove by. "Voted Best Chinese, GF and Vegetarian in San Diego". The sign was right!! We were there on a Monday night and it was packed, so I would definitely recommend reservations. We sat outside on the patio... More

We are fortunate to have a daughter at UCSD which allows us to visit her often from Louisville, KY. What I'm getting to is this is our absolute favorite restaurant. I hwas looking forward to having dinner here since making our flight reservations. Everyone at our table was excited with what they ordered and more so when the food came.... More

Absolutely great food. I've been there multiple times and never been disappointed. Try the spare ribs or the lamb chops they are special. Everything else I have had there is top notch. Good service, in the heart of Del Mar. What more could you ask for?

Food was really really good and prices are pretty good. Suggest you make a reservation as the restaurant was small and there were many people waiting. Service was a little slow as the restaurant was very crowded.

Good Sunset dinner, street patio table, attentive service. Pad Thai is very mild, not significant - Kung Pow Chicken & Beef Broccoli very good - Green Beans the best. Nice wines & beers. Lots of dogs allowed, barking & unruly - not good! Prices are good for Del Mar. All in all it's good, not keeping authenticity of Asian though.... More
