I have driven past this restaurant for 25 years and never noticed it. With that being said, a good Chinese friend suggested we meet there for some soul food. In brief, I was blown away by the great food & service. If you want GREAT Chinese food this is the place. You will not leave hungry or disappointed!

Since A-1(一品香) was changed hands, we have visited it 5 times and enjoyed the foods tremendously. At the most recent visit, we noted that the menu has been redesigned in a better way. We loved their specials like House Specialty Fish (招牌魚塊), Meat Dumpling in Chili oil (紅油炒手), Braised Pork Ball in Brown Sauce (or in Soup) (獅子頭), Spicy Stewed Pork (五更腸旺, $12.95), Stirred Fried Lamb with Basil (三杯羊肉, $14.95). We have not yet tried their famous Peking Duck. Some of their Taiwanese Special like Tainan Dantze Noodle Soup (台南担仔麵), was a total failure (We have suggested they took it out of the menu, they will). The small restaurant seating in the corner of Pacific Coast HWY and Eshelman Ave, but only can be reached through PCH, very easy to be missed. We had no complaint about their service. They were so busy, acceptable. You have to visit it.

Very experienced front staff and excellent cook in the back, its one of the best Chinese restaurant in the whole South Bay area. They serve both Cantonese and Taiwanese food and both are made with high quality material. Price is always affordable.

OK, so you might drive right by this place if you don't know it's there, but this is the most delicious duck you'll ever have. Dinner had been hanging from a hook just hours before we arrived and if you peek into the kitchen you'll see for yourself. The food here was plentiful, delicious, pleasantly served and it was all done by one cook and one server. This is a small restaurant. I would advise reservations and that you tell them you want the duck so they can prepare it. And....you won't need a suit.
