The food is cheap but really greasy. After we ate and came home the entire family had a headache, maybe from the MSG used in the dishes. The restaurant is dirty and the bathrooms are absolutely disgusting. The toilets were cracked and yellowed. The ceiling tiles are brown and the tables sticky. Our booth had duct tape holding it together. Maybe even worse, the service is absolutely horrible. Our waitress yelled at us when she gave us water and told us "don't spill it" as she was putting it down. Why she thought we would was beyond our comprehension. The food came out quickly but the waiters were annoyed when we asked for anything extra, water, napkins, a spoon and fork for people in our group that needed them. We don't consider ourselves high maintenance people at all, but we will not return there. We suggest others don't go either.

Pros: cheap

Cons: greasy food, over salted, rude waitstaff, dirty facilities, cash only

Agreeing with all of the previous posts, this Sam Woo has nothing on restaurants in LA or San Francisco but remember we're talking about San Diego here. If you want quick Chinese food (not Panda express, that's not Chinese Food), then this is the place to get it. Located next to 99 Ranch Market, you get the best of both worlds, shopping and eating Chinese food. Their pork and chicken dishes are regular combo dishes many people order and aren't half bad. Sure the service can be a little slow but what they lack in quality service they make up for in food that is hard to find in San Diego. This is a one stop place if you go with a large group or just a few friends. It will fill you up and your wallet won't take a large hit so give it a try if you get a chance. Enjoy

Food is pretty good at reasonable price. Not as great as most L.A. Chinese restaurants, but great when you're craving chinese food. Friendly service.

sam woo is the best chinese food in la jolla. it does not hold a candle to chinese food in los angeles or san francisco, but it's the best here. the place is a little on the dirty side but it is more pleasant now that they have done a total renovation including getting rid of the rusted over chairs. the waiters are rude, but once again being the best chinese food, you don't have much option but to take it and keep coming back. the price is pretty good but you have to learn what to order. some things like the pork and tofu are surprise dishes which means that it'll taste completely different every time if you come late at night (assume what you like.) another plus is that it's open til midnight. recommended going for lunch because you get the same meal, fresher, and for half price.

although not the cleanest of restaruants, it is place i go to for cheap chinese food that tastes good. the waiters are lazy sometimes and/or rude but that can all be avoided if you go to the take out line.
