For many years, our family ate regularly at Chin's in Escondido. I suppose our annual expenditure at Chin's was around $1,000. Over the years we noticed a gradual decline in food quality and service, but we continued to patronize our favorite restaurant. One of my grandson's went on his first date at age 15, and on my advice he took his 14 year old date to Chin's. He was a very nervous young man, never having been alone in a restaurant with a girl he wanted to impress. The meal went fine and he paid the bill, but being nervous and trying to look after his date, he forgot to leave a tip. A block away from the restaurant, they were walking toward the movie theater, when a Chin's employee came running after him yelling that he cheated them and did not leave a tip. As the Chin's employee was yelling and screaming on a public street, it made our grandson very embarrassed, in front of his date and the onlookers, as he handed the man a tip. His first date was ruined and he was very upset. Upon, learning of the incident, I called Chin's and asked to speak with the manager. I explained the incident and that our family were regular patrons at the restaurant. The manager took my name and phone number and said he would look into the incident and get back to me. What the manager did was blow me off. He never apologized and he never returned my call. Our family decided never to eat at Chin's again. The story has a happy ending because we found the Bamboo House in Escondido, which has much better food and service. Skip Chin's and go to Bamboo House, which treats their customers with respect as well as much better food and polite civilized service.

Seriously - battered sweet and sour mushroom caps - they're actually called spicy honey mushrooms - are delicious. I have never seen or had anything like it and I always make sure I order it when we go. Lots of vegetarian options that aren't just steamed mixed veggies. Yuk.

The atomosphere is nice and it is a clean place but the food hasn't been the greatest lately. Service is spotty some times too. It's a good place to go before a movie.

The food is good - but lately been thinking it is kind of greasy. Reasonable prices and a dim sorta romantic atmosphere. We did have a problem once with the check, they miscalculated and argued up a storm with us and then they finally found out they were wrong and quickly were like ok. no apologies, but they complied.

The food here is good and not too expensive. The staff is friendly and always there to attend to your needs. There is hardly ever a wait to get a table.
