Each time we visit Aptos area we look for restaurants we haven't tried before. We certainly were not dissapointed tonight. The food was delicious and portions were more than generous but the real highlight of the evening was our waiter. He was friendly, funny and extremely attentive. He overheard it was my Mother in Law's birthday and brought her dessert,... More

Food was awesome. Huge portions. For a wee bit of money. A really funny waiter. We had such a good time on a Sunday night we lost track of time. They were so kind. I will go back each time I visit. ❤️

We stumbled upon this restaurant because we heard it was very healthy. It was very healthy and it has a variety of good choices. The rice bowls are the best and we added more vegetables to our order. It's a takeout or dine in an outside covered patio. So, if you want to get something quick, this would be a... More

The food is tasty. The ambiance is quiet and relaxing. Great place to share a meal with friends. Some of the staff act like they don't appreciate your business but service is still good.

Decorations are cute and the service staff are good- except the owner who is almost down rude. This place has very average Chinese food. I've lived in Aptos over 25 yrs. I will go here as last resort. Actually more More American than Chinese

There are not many Chinese restaurants in Santa Cruz County. Most are very cheap Chinese. The food here is good quality and reasonably priced. The service is also very good. Attentive and friendly wait staff.

Nice and close to the KOA Santa Cruz/Monterey Campground. Great staff and location. Our waiter had a great sense of humor as well.

Our regular chinoise was jammed to the gills, so The Lovely and i clambered into the car and went wandering in a nearby shopping center and way the hell off in the corner, behind some other stuff was Uncle Kwok's. We didn't even know it was there! Looked in the window, and there was this clean looking, nicely laid out,... More
