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.
I was so glad that they delivered to my area... most places are scared to come out here...But they sure did charge 6 bucks for the distance they said.. this all good and dandy.. I just wanted Chinese to be delivered to me not wanting to go out... Anyway, it took an hour. thats ok too they told me that ahead of time.. they take credit... thats good too... The food was good... good enough... I've had better.. Overall, I was happy because it was delivered and decent tasting. :)
After reading the other review posted for Super Wok we had to give it a shot. The hole-in-the-wall location and the interior definately won't draw you inside. The food will however keep you coming back for more. The portions are large and the food is great. They have some great lunch deals but the prices are very reasonable anytime you go. This is a definate must-have when you stay in the Pacific Beach area.
I ordered through a 3rd party website and after submitting my order it forwards it to this restaurant. I called after a couple minutes and said that they are already cooking it. I've actually never been inside the actual resto but the delivery time was quick and food was good. I ordered beef and broccoli, cream cheese wontons and chowmein noodles. Everything arrived fresh and not cold! :)
I come here usually with the food fresh and delicious. I have a friend to whom I recommend this place complain about how the food looked sort of dry when he went. When that happens to you, I know that happens when it is slow, get their fresh made noodle soups and steak!!!!! This is the first buffet place I know that has a noodle soup station. Better than mongolian BBQ in my opinion.
This is a decent place to throw a party for friends and family members! Unlike many crappy buffet restaurants, this one will live up to expectations if you make quality of food a priority. It's a little pricey, but it's totally worth it once you find out what's good there. Sushi, traditional beef and seafood noodle soup, steak, crab legs, oyster, salmon, etc.
I am so thankful for all their staffs help! I originally called in for a big party of 12 and eventually had to change it twice hours before. The staff was so nice about it and even arranged for us to be outside where it wasn't as loud so we could all talk to those on the far side of the table. The food and cocktails was great and the service was even better!
I saw their ad and decided to have dinner with my family their, and although my wife was pleasantly surprised on how large the entres were, I was displeasaed with the quality of the food. Honestly, if you put a plate of this and panda express on the same table, I would not be able to tell the difference. Overall it was OK.
