Honey-Walnut shrimp is to die for, and the Peking Duck is delicious. The menu items are actually a little pricy, but they all taste wonderful so I dont mind ( its REAL chinese food). The standard chinese items are there as well, and also good. There are two sides to the restaurant, a quick take-out side and a dine-in formal side. Eat in the formal side. Service is relatively prompt and friendly, and the restaurant is a good size, so there is usually a minimal wait. There are only two chinese restaurants I go to in the OC, and this is one of them, for good reason. (okay sometimes I get in the mood for that really cheap, americanised chinese take-out, but thats a different story). Sam Woo is real, quality chinese food, which other chinese people come to eat (the clientelle is primarily chinese).
Pros: great taste and variety! authentic!
Cons: a little expensive, but worth it
