If you are looking for authentic Chinese food, Panda Machi in Alpine, CA is the place where the locals eat. The food is great and very inexpensive. I hesitate to recommend it because lunch and dinner times are very crowded. If you don't want to wait, go during the off hours.

We had lunch here on our way out of town. Pretty good sushi, although not a lot of vegetarian options. Service is so-so, we had trouble ordering and getting our food. I'm thinking they would have more staff on during the evenings though. They also have some Chinese dishes, which look great, but they don't serve the full menu at... More

Good food and good prices. Not fancy, but filling and good service. We go here a few times a year and always glad we did.

We had mixed dinners here. The service was good but they got very busy and that seemed to strain the staff. I got the general t'so chicken and my wife got chicken lo mein which she thought lacked flavor. We would try this place again though.

A small restaurant featuring Asian cuisine with a huge variety from sushi to chicken fried rice to beef with snow peas. The restaurant is usually crowded at dinner time and for good reason as the food seems very authentic. They offer great take out service as well.

The food here was quite good. They had items the kids could enjoy, and the seared tuna salad was very good.
