Pretty Good!

Went here with my girlfriend for a nice dinner and it was very good. We had the Mongolian Beef and the Pork rolls and very tasty. The price was good and you got a lot of food for the price. Service was great! I'd recommend giving them a try.

This was a special celebration that went sour quickly. We were escorted to the dark end of the dining room and had to ask to sit by the windows. The best part of our meal was the busboy who smiled and refilled our water glasses regularly and the Won Ton soup. Otherwise, the food was hot when it came out... More

The food is very average and not that flavorful. I'd call it a " White Person's " Chinese restaurant. The hot and sour soup is missing very key and easy to find ingredients. None of the dishes are very flavorful. The walnut prawns were almost drowning in mayonnaise. The service is good and the ambiance is lovely, attractive, calm, &... More

Just back from the restaurant after my lunch and I am so disappointed on why I chose this place. The food overall is OK! and is too westernised from what it has to be by the cuisine. The staff especially the waiter was very unfriendly and rude. He made us wait for 15 mins before I asked the front desk... More

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

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.

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
