Beware of Chun's Seafood & Grill (Address: 9355 Kearny Mesa Rd. San Diego, CA 92126, next to the Holiday Inn Express). They previously were a Chin's franchise (which is one of the best Chinese franchised restaurants here in San Diego. Then suddenly the franchisee sold their business to a new owner and they refuse to continue their franchise with Chin's. Chun's they named it in order to mislead unsuspected eaters. The food was okay with ridiculously lower prices than that of comparable Chinese restaurants. Here is the catch/scam. They forcefully add a gratuity of 18%. Yeah, you heard me right, no matter if you are 1 person or 16 people, you will still be forcefully be charged the 18%. When you complain to the manager, he will try to persuade you that it is written on the menu and that California state law permits restaurants to add gratuity. True, however, the menu is in fine-print, printed on the bottom and clearly states that Chun's has the right to add 15% gratuity on parties of 6 or more. By luring unsuspected customers with lower than average prices and the goodwill of the previous Chin's franchise location, they scam customers in forcing them to pay 18% gratuity. Again, they scam and fraudulent add 18%. I have heard adding 15% for large parties (such as 6), but I have never heard adding 18%, regardless and practices are contrary to what it is clearly written in the menu. Bottom-line, don't ever visit the conniving location of Chun's Seafood & Grill in San Diego. THEY WILL RIP YOU OFF WITH FORCED GRATUITY/TIPS!!!
