“Restaurant is run by the nicest people that you will meet in Laguna!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2013

I keep coming back for take-out and dining in because the owners are such genuinely nice people! You are guaranteed great service every single time! They include a complimentary salad and a dessert with your meals. We were given delicious almond cookies but on Fridays, they serve you candied bananas which are amazing! Great little restaurant that is right on PCH. It is also reasonably priced which is rare to find in Laguna.

“Great service, great value, great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2012

Upon walking into this small establishment one would not expect very much from this hidden away restaurant ... once seated our party of 8 were great by the friendly waiting staff and offered chopsticks upon request (great for those of us who don't use chopsticks and who donth want to waste resources). After we received our drinks a fresh complimentary salad was brought out for the table.. we ordered the sizzling rice soup followed by the awesome eggrolls and pot stickers, which were all phenomenal. The entrees that we ordered were nothing less than spectacular ... the Mongolian beef, honey walnut shrimp, seafood happy family, house special chicken, bbq pork fried rice, shrimp chow mein, spicy peppered fish, and lastly the kung pao chicken ... the only complaint that we had was that they were extremely nice and attentive

This is one of the best Chinese restaurants we have every eaten at. Prices are good. Wait staff friendly and very attentive. Fish and veggie dish, egg fried rice.and eggrolls delicious. Served hot. A "miss not" in Laguna beach (on north Blue Trail main highway)

“Out of the way but worth it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2012

Just north of the down town of Laguna Beach this place was
just right for us, a small place with good food for value.
For just $5.50 more you get a full serving of whatever
entre you choose like in most chinese restaurants, but you
also get the soup and some appetizers and a small salad and
rice as well. So for a couple like myself and my girlfriend who
doesn't eat meat I order one meat dish on the full meal plan
she gets the vegi fried rice and that makes a full meal for us
both. Good family place small but worth the mile or so walk
from down town.

“fresh and fast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2012

A very small restaurant with fresh delicious food, fast and friendly service. Reasonably priced menu great sizzling rice soup and "seafood happy family" ambience is pretty non existant as the dining room is so small but the food is worth it. They do carry out.
