The food was pretty average. I had the egg fu young, which wasn't typical egg fu young. They did have good specials and there was a lot of food for the price. The food could definitely use a bit more flavor.

We've been going here for about 15 years now, some of the best service of any restaurant in the Laguna Hills area. The food is above average. While the ownership may have changed the servers haven't and they often remember your unique details when ordering.
