Average in all ways. Much better places to eat in town. We had eaten here before and the food was better then. Will not be returning.

This was our first meal here in years. Used to think it was good, but average. This time, everything was noticeably flavorful and well-crafted with good, fresh ingredients.

Enjoy a weekday CHINESE lunch for $3.95--not a typo error. Located at 3555 Clares across from the 41st Ave. Mall close to the surfing mecca "Santa Cruz." Try the pork chow mein, served with a bowl of hot/spicy soup, then a big plate of pork chow mein, your choice of white or brown rice, sliced sweet orange, a couple of... More
