We have eaten at Mao's on each of our Cali trips (3x now) and it never disappoints!! Absolutely delicious Chinese food and a great atmosphere, plus it's great value! Definitely one of our favourite places to eat!

Traditional Chinese food, served quickly. A funky rustic setting not unlike a traditional Chinese restaurant. A great place for a quick meal and reasonably priced dishes as well. Food is fresh and tasty and not your typical sugar loaded "Chinese" takeaway. Highly recommend a visit...More
