Success! Thanks for posting your review of Sam Woo Cafe. You’ve done the world some good today.

I Love Sam Woo

Sam Woo is great.\r Amazing authentic Chinese BBQ.\r The Pork and Duck are the stuff of legend.\r The joint only takes cash, but you don't need much to get your fill.\r Get there early ... or get there late.\r It's all good.\r Sam Woo is great!

Worst Chinese Food I've ever tried...

I once heard that the chinese eat just about anything. I thought it was a joke until I had lunch at Sam Woo Chinese Restaurant, in the the heart of Chinatown Los Angeles. We ordered Kung Pao Chicken and the Mixed Seafood with Bean Sauce. They were both inedible.

good noodles

Definitely get the house special pan friend noodles! Everything else is pretty much average chinese.

Good food late night better to dine in than take out.

I've been going to Sam Woos for years. I usually takeout 3 meats(delicacies) on a bed of rice. It cost $7.53 I was there last night 9/2/06. \r If you dine in or take out meat by weight it is a better deal. The takeout plate looks like alot of food but there are alot bones. The illusion is they will take a drumstick and cut it up then a chicken wing and cut it up and maybe a 1/4 breast and do the same. \r If you ea... view more

tasty chinese

now i'm not chinese but I have eaten at quite a few asian restaurant and sam woo's was pretty tasty. i ordered the chicken with black bean sauce lunch special. That was the first time i've ever had that dish in a restaurant and it was very good. the sauce was salty but not overpowering, with good depth. The chicken was accompanied with green bell peppers and onions, rounding out the dish. I'll go back if i'm ever in ... view more

Super Cheap for Lunch

This place is great for lunch on the weekend. Simple chinese food but lunch special price is great. If you are there in a group, each person will probably end up paying about $5-8 which include soup, all you can eat rice, the food and a fortune cookie. Lunch specials are from $3.95. It's damn good price.

Cheap and Yummy

I personally like Sam Woo Restaurants in Alhambra or Monterey Park much better. But, this one will do. I can literally stuff myself to death with pocket change. And the food tastes great! What else can you ask for when you're in the mood for cheap chinese?
