Been going here for many years. It's a very clean and attractive restaurant just off of Highway 1. Food is consistently tasty. Service is good and consistent. Ordered for both dine-in and take out. Prices are a bit on the higher side for Chinese food.

If you are in the mood for Chinese food while in Pacifica, then Tams is the place to go. A bit more expensive than normal fare but worth the extra cash. Their honey walnut shrimp is amazing.
