One of our favorite happy hour spot. We love the wide variety of options at Khan’s and great service. There’s outdoor patio seating and ample parking. This place has it all!

Atmosphere good - plenty of room - inside and outside on the balcony - with heaters. Great service, but the important thing is the food - wow - excellent. I had the Lemon sole entree - delish -

The M-F Happy Hour serves the working people in this area of Kearney Mesa. Khan's Cave is a local neighborhood Tavern with Asian Flavors. I immediately felt welcome bellying up to the bar and everyone was so friendly including Fletcher behind the bar. My beer...of choice was Bitbuger which usually isn't on offer in many places. I got the steamed pork gyoza and the amazing Dan-Dan noodles which was way too much food. The noodles in itself would have been plenty. It was such a great way to end a long day. This is the kind of place to come after work for sure but I don't work in the area, I was only there for training for a temp position. Otherwise, I could see my making this my happy hour spot. Thanks for a great way to wind up my day.More

I have never been to such a. Poorly managed restaurant in my life. From the time entering there were people at the bar , particularly a woman, who couldn’t stop cursing during a football game. This manager was timid, did not ask these rowdy people...to behave or to leave. We were a family of 4 . Two elder women and two younger men. Due to the escalation of foul language, threats , WE were told no more alcohol would be served etc. we did not have even one cocktail due to the horrible behavior of customers at the bar. A bartender or server who was tall and intimidating, stated to me “ you ate your food, so you must pay”. We were unable to finish our meals due to the threats and foul language of a female customer at the bar. I asked who is the manager or owner. One oriental man stated he was the manager but he had no control at all. We will never return to such a dangerous place who places money over safety of customers.. As for the food, we were not able to eat. Only angrily intimidated by the tall man who may have been the bartender or server. He was very rude. Had I to do over, I would have called the police.More

I have been wanting to stop here for quite a while, we were in the area dropping off our ballots and decided today was the day! The restaurant is located at a busy intersection in a strip mall, plenty of nearby parking and it is...well maintained for the area. The exterior and interior are both clean and inviting. Once you walk in, the decorations are fantastic! Definite Asian themed with great food! I am on a restricted diet due to medication I am taking and asked if I could have my lunch made without the leafy green veggies....they were happy to prepare it the way I needed, very polite and helpful. The food was brought to us in a very reasonable time and was delicious. They have a nice selection of beers and a great menu. Once your food is delivered, they really don't pester you. They came by a couple of times to see if we needed anything else, then pretty much left us alone.....Overall a great experience and we plan to go back.....Highly recommendedMore

Have been here many, many times. Everyone we bring becomes a loyal customer. Food is great with a wide variety. My husband always gets one of the fish dishes. My favorite is the duck Shangri-La. The green beans are the best ever. On weekends there...is music and dancing. Parking is easy. And the back room is not too loud. What more can one ask for?More

Khan's is one of my favorite places to eat. It has so many options to choose from and the Happy Hour prices are great. I always order the Beef Chow Fun. Lots of noodles, beef and veggies. Yum! This last time we were there, we...had the Pub Steak and Fries as a Happy Hour appetizer along with the Beef Curry Dumplings, and our favorite apps, the Chicken Lettuce Wraps and Firecracker Calamari. The portions are generous and the Pub Steak and Fries was big enough to be a meal. The steak was cooked perfectly to medium. The fries were the best I've had. Crispy and tender on the inside and good to the last fry. The Beef Curry Dumplings were very tasty too. This is a great place to eat especially if you have a big group of people. There is so much to choose from and I think everyone could find something they'll like. And the prices are very reasonable. This is one of my favorite places to eat.More

We met here with a group of old friends and had such a wonderful time. Sammy is one of the best Servers here and makes everyone feel so welcome. Happy Hour on Wednesday goes all day and wow they had great selections of items to...order from the Menu. We had the Truffle Fries, Calamari. Pepper Chicken Legs, and the Garlic Shrimp, all of which was excellent. Very nice wine and beer selection to choose from that everyone enjoyed.More

My husband and I were nearby for work and saw this restaurant. We were intrigued by the name, looked up the reviews (on another website) and decided to stop for lunch. We shared the skirt steak and grilled onions as an appetizer - it was...absolutely delicious, flavorful and a perfect medium rare. The grilled onions were plentiful and delicious too. I had the regular size creamy walnut shrimp plate with brown rice and salad. The shrimp were large, tender and the sauce was perfect. The accompanying salad and rice, were great too and the portion size was very generous. My husband had the cashew chicken, which he loved, also with rice and salad. He had the large portion and it was huge. Service was fast and they constantly checked to make sure our beverages were full. The only small negative was that the appetizer came out with the entrees and we would have preferred separation between the two. The bill for all this delicious food was very reasonable. Come here hungry, you won’t be disappointed. We were thanked repeatedly for our visit and will absolutely eat here again the next time we are in the area.More
