One of my go to spots in San Diego. Every time I've been the food is always great and I find myself craving it when I haven't been. Highly recommend the eggplant with garlic sauce, probably the best eggplant I've had. The service is always quick and they staff is super friendly, the ordering is also self-service online vía a QR code which is convenient and easy to use. Overall 10/10 would absolutely recommend and will be back!

I found the biang biang noodles and hand-pulled noodles at this place to be quite satisfying - I even returned a couple of times just for them. The jujube hot soy milk was also a favorite of mine. The ambiance is casual and nothing out of the ordinary, but be warned: dinner times on weekends can get busy, and parking in the plaza can be a challenge. However, I did encounter some ordering issues. On my first visit, I was advised to swap the cumin lamb with cumin beef, but on full review
The food was alright depending on what you order.What I we liked:1) cumin lamb biang biang noodles2) spicy chicken noodles (big portion) - I found it to be ok but our friend liked it. It’s a heavy chicken flavored soy sauce mix.What I would skip:1) general tso chicken - our friend wanted to order it and it simply sweet gu Lao Rou using chicken which simply wasn’t good2) Cold lian pi noodle - I liked where the idea was going with nutty spicy Sichuan flavor but it was more full review
