The quality is amazing and the staff are the sweetest people ever. We’ve had Emma several times and she’s great! We will definitely be coming back any time we crave hotpot :)“

“Food is great but service reeeeeally depends on which server you get! Some are very patient and helpful, especially if you’re new, others are extreeeemely impatient, get mad at you, yell at you, the one girl today even rolled her eyes at me and pointed at the line behind me while continuously rolling her eyes at me and sighing. So… good luck to you ?“

“The presentation of Noodle at Qin West is particularly outstanding. The cold skin here has a soft texture and a unique taste. It not only retains the traditional flavor, but also adds modern innovation. You can feel the carefully prepared sauce in every bite. It has the sourness of vinegar, the spiciness of chili oil, and the fragrance of minced garlic, perfectly balancing various flavors. In addition, the restaurant's service attitude is excellent and the environment is clean and tidy, making the entire dining experience even more enjoyable. Whether you are a first timer or a seasoned fan of cold noodle soup, Qin West Noodle can provide you with an unforgettable gourmet journey.“

“Nice hole in the wall noodle shop in the quiet end of the shopping center. The braised noodle soup has three large and well braised pieces of beef and the broth has a nice Chinese medicine/ herbal taste to it. The dan dan noodles were just slightly above average. Would revisit.“

First Sandwich Sandwich Shop

“Hidden Gem of IrvineFast, Fresh, and Friendly! Sandwiches and Asian home cooking served with a smile. This is a Family Owned Business, ran by the same Asian couple everyday. The woman at the front counter is always happy and sweet, and the man making the food in the back is dedicated to his craft. They offer a large menu with variety for any pallet. I get the Home Cooked Stewed Pork Plate every time, highly recommended! Indoor and Outdoor seating available. Please give them a try!“

I don't care for a lot of items in set hot pots so I love how you can personalize your meal! The restaurant is a fast meal & self serve type of service. Would definitely recommend !“

“First time trying Uyghur / Central Asian food with my family today at Dolan's in Irvine. I specifically went to try more lamb since I rarely eat it. It's in the same plaza as Omomo, Trader Joe's, and Wanderlust Creamery. We were seated and had to order from a QR code and pay on our phone after. Minimal interaction with our waitress besides getting our beverages.. now onto what we ordered. hot uyghur tea: 3/5 tasted like warm salty milk and def did not taste the black tea manta: 4/5 these are meaty dumplings that tasted peppery and had an umami aftertaste Uyghur Polo lamb: 5/5!! rice pilaf with bits of raisins cumin, and pieces of lamb.. my brother and I really loved this dish. Wish they had a few more lamb pieces though. Laghman spicy noodles w/ lamb: 4.5/5 the lamb was so juicy and tender!! the noodles had a nice chew as well and the spice level was PERFECT.. i even ate some of the bell peppers (my least fav veggie) 4.5 experience overall so def worth a try if you're in Irvine, Rowland, or Alhambra“

Although listed as mild spicy none were at all spicy. Will return and see if they will bump up the heat.Now for the 3 star rating for service. No wait, not particularly busy,but our server went to other tables seated after us to get their order. Had to work hard to get attention for the check and to get him to pickup the credit card.“

“This is a casual dining restaurant, that's why it's only three stars tops for atmosphere. The food was brought out fairly quickly. We were 7 people and ordered lots of dishes. I resented the cashier giving me her opinion that "It's a lot of food." It's none of her business! We're there to eat! Take our money and bring us our food! We don't need your judgment!!! We all enjoyed the food and took home the leftovers. Believe me, it's all going to be eaten. Convenient take home containers up front that you can grab yourself.Vegetarian options: Enough rice and vegetable dishes for vegetariansParking: You're fighting with many other people for a parking spot, especially at the dinner hour.“

“Very good food.We started with Egg rolls. Excellent. Then the Hot and Sour soup. Also excellent but the menu said spicy ? no spice at all. Maybe you have to ask. Either way flavor was excellent.Then had the Shrimp and Scallions. Very good but again rather bland. Next we had a Beef dish see pic. Sorry I don't see the name listed on the online menu. But it was excellent! So tender and great flavors.Last but not least the Chicken fried rice. Again excellent and very large portion. Tookvit home and set it again a couple hours later. Still excellent.I highly recommend this restaurant.1/19Not much to update.Language is an issue.Food is good but rather bland in my opinion.Got the Eggplant stir-fry. Best dish so far.I think the Signature Duck dish is over rated.Oh, they don't have mustard. I've never been to a Chinese restaurant that didn't have Hot Chinese mustard. NYC, Boston, Colorado, San Francisco, LAOrange county. Very strange. Oh well.It's good not great.My search continues for a good Chinese restaurant.“

“The boba texture is always on point- chewy but soft. Cha for tea's almond milk tea is top tier. They work really fast and have a lot of employees making drinks. It's located in the University Town Center so there's usually a line around dinner time and after. The boba is reasonably priced and they also have snacks as well! The popcorn chicken is good. Although, the portion is small. You can also adjust sweetness, which I'd highly recommended. I typically get 2 pumps of sweetener instead of 5 for the large cup.“

“Hainan Chicken rice is all about subtle and balanced flavor and texture and this little takeout spot hits the right notes. It doesn't look like much, just steamed chicken on a bed of rice, but the taste is very comforting and it's easy to eat. Get it with the skin on!My favorite sauce is the garlic sauce, and the chicken soup that comes with the Signature combo is delicious and complementary to the chicken rice.My only warning is that it cools off quickly in the wide takeaway containers, so don't order too far ahead of time and eat it quickly.Parking: I haven't come here during lunch rush, but at dinner time, parking is easy. It's mostly delivery drivers that are in and out.“

“I'm so glad that there is a place like this for a quick grab. When I placed my order they said it will be ready in 5 minutes. Suits their shop name "Express" lol. They don't have the hot trays available yet due to slow business. So all of the food is made to order. I'm hoping that they bring it back. My pad Kee mao had a good flavor and portion size. However not much protein. I'll be a regular here for sure“
