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.
When I moved to Mira Mesa 10 years ago, I found China Chef II because they delivered. I was a home care giver and anytime I did not need to leave the house was good. This food is not only some of the best I ever had, the staff, along with exceptional customer service, prompt delivery and a has varied large selection of items that always tasted fresh and just made. I tend to stay with my old stand by favorites, but whenever I did stray and try something new, I have never been disappointed. I still miss Wo Chee Chongs in Chula Vista (spelling) but this restaurant is wonderful and deserves your attention.
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.
