My family's first food stop

On my family's first outing in Los Angeles we went to chinatown and decided to go eat at plum tree inn. What a surprise when we got our delicious food, but also got great service with it. This is a definitely a favorite in my book of restaurants...

Mediocre food, mediocre service

Just tried my first restaurant in Los Angeles China Town. Plum Tree looked interesting from the outside, so thought we'd give it a try. As chance would have it, there was a big event going on. Good (albeit 80s) music, interesting crowd, etc. Wait staff, while quick to refill a drink prior to, was nowhere to be found during the meal. Had to wait for 10 minutes after finishing before we could flag the waiter down for the check. Further, when asking for the leftovers to go, he threw the boxes down and hurried off to another table -- hastily returning to slop the food I had not yet managed into a container. We had two dishes -- one hit, one miss -- but even the hit was just ok. Quite sure we're not going to give it another chance. Was hoping for more authenticity (and definitely better service).



Decent Chinese food

This is a late night favourite among me crew when we're out drinking in Chinatown. Although the pork, beef and chicken dishes were good, our sweet and sour shrimp was a bit single note and lacking in flavour. It's a nice place for large parties. Ask for their specials.

Great for large parties

We had an 80-guest party at the Plum Tree Inn after our daughter was baptized at the Cathedral downtown. The manager was very helpful in making the reservation and the restaurant already has a set menu with set prices for large parties so you know what you are going to get. We were a little worried about the service after we found out that another 60-person party was being held in the restaurant at the same time but our doubts were soon dispelled when we arrived at the restaurant for the party. We had a staff of 6 well dressed waiters to ourselves with the restaurant manager on hand to coordinate everything. All eight tables were served simultaneously and they even took the time to serve each individual bowl of soup. All of our guests were impressed by the staff and delighted with the food. All the dishes were amazing but the standout dishes were the Szechuan shredded pork and the tangerine chicken. Good food, good service and very tasteful decor that made it look like we spent a lot more on the party than we did.

Our Favorite Restaurant

We've tried a bunch of different restaurants in Chinatown, and as far as we are concerned, this is the best. The food is excellent, the service prompt, courteous and attentive, and the atmosphere is relaxing. While it is often busy, we've never had a very long wait, and have never needed reservations.

Visited LA for the weekend+first date

I just visited LA for a weekend and went on a first date, and we went to Chinatown to Plum Tree Inn for dinner. It was yummy, fast seating and service, and reasonably priced. It was a good date place; we had privacy to talk and it wasn't too noisy. The leftovers were good the next day.

Great Find

Stumbled across this place by accident one night following a friend's whim for Chinese food. While Empress Pavillion and Ocean Seafood offer more traditional options, their too-bright banquet hall-like facilities are a turn off. Plum Tree attracted us with its slightly darker vibe and booths. The food was good. The wanton soup for two was just the right amount. The cashew shrimp didn't quite compare to Schzewan in MDR, but it was still tasty. Our beef dish from the house specials section of the menu didn't disappoint. The egg rolls were decadent but good. The service was accomodating and prompt. A good experience.

Chinatown Experience

A great place to meet with frineds and co-workers for a relaxing meal in historical Chinatown. Great food, great service, adjacent to Chinatown shopping hot spots.
