Good food, good place for a meeting

I've eaten here several times for lunch, it is a very good spot for a business meeting. The food is good, the staff is attentive, and they recognize a meeting and can provide good service without being in the way.

The food is basically Westernized Chinese food so in an area where there are so many authentic Chinese restaurants, it shows up as just showy and expensive. The food is good. I had a very nice crispy fish entrée. My husband found his meat entrée pleasing and flavorful as well. However it was not exceptional to make up for the... More

I was totally amazed at how wonderful the food and service was. I loved the ginger salad dressing and I'm not much was a salad person. The salad came with the luncheon item I chose. My plate had three seafood items, scallops being the main attraction. It was fabulous, and I will return anytime I am in the area. In... More

This restaurant serves classical heavily Westernized Chinese food and is best described as an expensive Panda Express. Despite being quite full there were no ethnic Chinese customers and it was quiet, so we knew we were in the wrong place for adventurous food. Not that there is anything wrong with that. Just don't expect anything heavily flavored or strongly regional.... More

I have several Chinese friends who LOVE to gamble. I'm amazed at their fearlessness as they place bets on sports teams or trot off to Reno to play the tables. Unfortunately, this particular restaurant is also a gamble. Although I would say it is definitely the best "americanized" Chinese food in the Cupertino area, you are NOT guaranteed a great... More

Great service and friendly management have made this place very satisfying over the years. I almost always start with the west lake beef soup filled with meat, mushrooms, onions, egg whites. I am getting hungry thinking about it. I then move on to a couple of main courses, such as chicken chow main, salt and pepper prawns, or chicken with... More

We live in Cupertino and eat her fairly often. It's not cheap but it's delicious. When our out of town family visits they always like to go there as well. Our family favorites are the Honey Walnut Prawns, Tangerine Beef, Sesame Chicken, Cashew Chicken, and Pot Stickers. I like the Hot & Sour soup as well.

Food-wise, they've got a wide range of Americanized Chinese food. I ordered their sesame chicken and it was quite tasty. Although their overly sweet, glazed fried chicken did remind me of a chicken dish I had at PF Chang's. Makes sense as how these two places have basically the same concept.

It is classic chinese restaurant in cupertino. It is in De Anza Blv. close to apple campus. The food is very good and the price is also ok. The hotel is in the other side of the Aloft cupertino. so if you are staying in this hotel it is a good choice for lunch.

We were excited to try a recommended Chinese restaurant in our area. Bit disappointed. Food was Ok, quite pricey. Weekends they just have the dinner menu which hikes the prices up considerably. Very few delicacies in our 3 Delicacy Kung Pao, mainly peanuts and water chestnuts. Honey Walnut prawns were over sweet and pale. But the waiter was the real... More
