This restaurant is off the beaten path but the food is right on! Very yummy and generous portions. The hot and sour soup is very flavorful!

Eagle doesn't bring you in because the restaurant front is dynamic or attractive. Inside doesn't draw the eye particularly either, but the food here is very much worth seeking out. Extensive menu. Great selection of appetizers and entrees. Fast efficient service. Will definitely return.

Super fresh and delicious Chinese food. The owners are wonderful and the food is ready quickly. There are many offerings and they do deliver if you order more than $40 or more. It’s not super inexpensive but it’s worth it.

A great Restaurant with no MSG added. The sweet items (like Sweet and sour pork, or orange chicken) are just the right balance of sweet and spicy. Easily the best Chinese food in Salinas.
