The food here is always delicious, and I was so excited to find quality, gluten free Chinese cuisine in San Diego!

Best Chinese food in the area. We went for Valentine's Day because we hadn't had Chinese in a long time. Creative menu with a wide range of choices.

Pan fried noodles! So hard to find outside of SF... dog friendly patio. Very good service and the food was consistently good. THe lamb chops were extremely tender and not gamey. Would definitely go again.

Overall very good service and food and one of our favorite places for Asian. However, this visit even with an Open Table reservation the hostess refused to seat us in a booth even though the place was empty. As we ate our meals, I noticed the same thing happening to other diners as they requested a specific table and were also refused by the hostess. Not sure why this new policy is being enforced. Hoping this new and improved seating policy won't last. Other than that, highly recommended!

We used opentable to get a reservation. But, the table that we got was terrible-in a noisy and very hot back room. The booths are quite nice but perhaps using opentable instead of calling the restaurant does not get the best table.

The service is annoying because one waiter takes your order and other delivers it. I usually request a glass of wine with the main meal and I have to ask the second waiter to bring it, even though I ordered it originally from the first waiter.

In town for a few days and this place has been voted best Chinese so we decided to try them. We had Soup and Dim Sum.
Looked awesome, but just ok on flavors. Guess it depends on your expectations.

Best Chinese food I've found in the San Diego area! It is a little more upscale but nothing too fancy where you can't have a casual dinner there. The waiters are very friendly and the food is great!

Went here on a Thursday night with friends. The place was buzzing. They have a very rich selection of Chinese meals and also a big selection of gluten-free meals. Many of the choices are great for sharing family style. We had a mixture of wine, beer and water with the meals all at very reasonable prices. The food was very tasty and we had a fantastic time.

You can park in the parking structure behind the restaurant and they will comp your parking.

Great place for a night where you crave good Chinese food.

After a few courses I was looking for the manager....to go into business with them in Tucson. We don't have anything like this. Gourmet Chinese food. Not like Tommy Toys (fake gourmet for tourists). This is the real deal. And yes the wine prices (Champagne) are very reasonable. Food was delicious. A bit hectic during the holidays but still everything came hot. Wow it was good!

Everything was under-seasoned. Potstickers were completely bland— needed to use a lot of the in-house sauce to give them any flavor. Beer list needs work. Very pricey for what it is. If you want good Chinese food, look elsewhere. If you want a suitable evening dinner location that tips it hat towards Asian, this place would do— just be ready to season everything yourself!

Excellent and friendly service. Very good food (the green beans, eggplant and governor’s chicken were particularly good. The scallion pancakes were quite good, but the order was small for the price. All in all, a bargain for Del Mar. better than when we were there 2 years ago.

I like the restaurant but am concerned because quality of chicken has gone downhill. My dish had strips of breast meat-about half were fine but others were too chewy-unlike the quality previously. Sure hope the food has not declined since the sale.
