The restaurant says it opens at 11:00am so we leave early because I'm still searching for my new car (see my review on Mel Rapton Honda). I figured we would see where the restaurant was located and then go kill some time by looking at a dealer nearby. We arrive at 10:40am and as I drive into the parking lot... More

We ordered the set meal good for 8 for $168 and it was delicious! Loved the pork chop, honey walnut shrimp, crab and steamed fish.

Yum - fantastic dim sum - but instead of waiting for the cards, you order your selections and they bring them right to the table. Fresh, hot and delicious. We enjoyed: Spicy green beans spring roll Pot stickers Shrimp balls baked pork buns

Grandson graduates from 5th grade; requests celebration that includes Sunday Dim Sum party paid for by grandparents! $82.84 for 6 diners. It was worth it. The high percentage of Asian diners present is a testament to the quality.... The doors open at 9:30 AM, and a crowd forms from the start. We have never been there when it wasn't crowded.... More

Gets crazy crowded so get there early! All the standards are good. Nice to see solid dim sum out in the valley.

We ate during a week day lunch and while we didn't have to wait, the restaurant was pretty full. The menu selection is large, the service good. The food was good, fresh, not salty or oily, my colleagues thought it was better than well known dim sum locations in Silicon Valley. We'll go back again.

Koi Garden is now called Koi Palace. This was my first time at this location and it was average at best for dim sum. In the future, I'll have to try it for dinner and maybe the results will be different. As others have mentioned, be prepared for a long wait especially on the weekends. We had 7 in the... More

Steam live black cod is excellent. First time we tried it and sure will order again. However, they said is seasonal. Boiled live shrimps is also very tasty. Simple and fresh.

I think the food here is great, its always delicious, hot and fresh.. however its kinda pricey... on the weekend, even if you go about half an hour after opening, there's already a wait! I can't really say there is much there for customer service.. its efficient but not friendly... I went this past Sunday.. asked one of the guys... More

This place usually has long wait in weekends due to shortage of dim sum places in the area. I have dined at this restaurant pretty often since its grand opening. It continuously offered good tasty dim sum and small plates but pricy. The hostess and managers were efficient, however they lacked of friendliness except Sam (one of the black jackets).... More
