I had the opportunity to go this evening to Yummy Buffet. I was very impressed in all aspects of my dinning experience. *I was seated quickly. *The young waiter was very receptive to my group and made sure that everything was taken care of . He even brought a balloon for my granddaughter who is almost 3. * The cooked salomon was delious as was everything else. *But the big surprise was the sushi bar. It was fresh and plentyfull and a wide selection. The slices of sushi were very thick and the rice was sticky and not falling apart. I ate several times and was not made to feel bad because I was taking so much.The sushi chief did not tell me I had to wait 30 minutes like what recently happened when I visited * If Yummy Buffet stays like this going forward I believe they have a long time running at this location.They will put other places in the immediate area to shame. TODAI'S doesn't even compete.
We have been fans of Ly's Garden for many years. From their stunning, delicate, three ingredient soup, their mouth- watering, steamed cat-fish, delicious salted shrimp, lemon grass beef and fillet of fish. their menu is large and modestly priced. It's a clean, casual place and the staff are friendly and helpful. I know this sounds like a paid advertisement but it's not. For a while we were lured away by nearer venues but although it's a long drive from Point Loma we make the trek frequently. We come back for the quality and the entirely reasonable prices. We are Chinese food aficionados having tried similar restaurants in other cities and even other countries and Ly's Garden stands out with the best in our culinary experience.
I have been here twice before for shrimp lo mein. It was good. But today I just had the worst shrimp fried rice I have ever had in my lifetime. It had lots of shredded, cooked, wilted lettuce in it...I suppose they ran out of cabbage; the rice was dry and hard even with additional spy sauce; the peas were dry and hard. It was absolutely the worst shrimp fried rice I've ever had. A waste of close to $10. I ate only the shrimp after a couple of bites, only because I was very hungry, and if I was not so tired I would go back and give them an earful! I will never get shrimp fried rice from Golden House again!
