I had chicken with mixed vegetables and it was great. No cornstarch-laden sauce, just lots of fresh vegetables and chicken cooked right. Frankly, I was taken aback at how good it... More

Like any metropolitan area, diners can likely find five star fusions of Japanese and Vietnamese. There is at least one a PF Chang's nearby for a good, well established menu. Still, it's... More

We stop here every time we go to Point Loma. After a long trip from Malibu, this restaurant is a nice place to eat and relax before our return road trip. The food is cooked fresh as you wait. The restaurant is clean!
