This little eatery seems to have a very busy to go business. We had our meal there and it was a nice clean modern space. A staff member did mention they will be adding table service soon so that will be even better.

Service was very slow and they were not busy. Our food arrived cold and we had to send it back. The hot & sour soup was an exception, but we won't go back.

I haven't had a bad meal at this restaurant. I really love the Vegetable Ramon Soup, plenty of veggie's and so fresh tasting. Their Kung Pow Chicken in excellent too, although I ask for mild or no spice. The restaurant is located inside the Viejas Casino in Alpine, Ca. Enjoy!

At first it looks like a fast food sort of place...But its small and nicely decorated. The food was made fresh and very good quality. Really a great meal for a very reasonable price.

Love staying here, price is right and I like those penny slots which seem to turn into dollar ones. People here are friendly. I try and come a couple of times a month. Of all the casinos in San Diego the non smoking areas here, are really non smoking areas. Sitting by the pool in summer is great. My dislikes... More

We went here for lunch, 4 of us. We had the fried shrimp wontons. Great taste. It was my b.day so I had the Lotus garlic shimp. The flavor was melt in your mouth. My husband had the Sinapore noodles.
