    One of the best if not the best Chinese restaurant in Palo Alto. Try the Hong Kong-style Crispy Pan-Fried Noodles. Delicious!

    "This family-friendly spot near Palo Alto, California, has been a mainstay for more than 35 years. Special family dinner menus for two, three, or five people make ordering a breeze."

    My grandpa's 90th bday dindin. Food. Was. Amazing! Chef Chu came out for a personal meet n greet. For dessert, hot almond soup with tiny delicately made sesame-filled mochi balls.

    Everything is freshly made by authentic Chinese chefs, and you can taste the difference. Always a smarter choice over PF Chang's and others

    One of the best chinese food in bay area! Peking roast duck is good. You need to call them to ask if available before you go.

    Always solid Chinese, hands down best in Los Altos. Pork buns are delish and the Chef's specials are standouts.

    The chicken salad is the best in Silicon Valley. And sizzling rice soup rocks! Busy but efficient on a Sunday night.

    Chinese New Year's banquets are always an amazing event with Chef Larry Chu providing play-by-play for the eight-course extravaganza.

    Snow white chicken was delicious but very delicate. If you want something more intense best to try a richer sauce.

    Disappointed withe the crab cheese puffs- they should have been creamier! Hot sour soup was yummy but the General Tso chicken was not great. It passed but I have had much better.
