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!
This little Chinese restaurant is in my neighborhood. Not much on interior but the food coming out of the kitchen is unbelievable. I love hot and sour soup and every Chinese restaurant has their own take on it. Usually med to heavy, this one is light and full of fresh vegetables. Thin squares of tofu and enough for 2 meals. What ever entree I decide on I always ask for light sauce as I want to taste the vegetables and such. This is a must go for take out like you've never had.
