The best Chinese in hayward

This restaurant is a staple in Hayward. The atmosphere, food and service is great. The bar is an added perk if you drink. You can't miss at the bistro

Dim sum to chow mien they are able to handle my Chinese food cravings. Great hot and sour soup. Nice ambiance a step up from the normal Chinese restaurant with a full bar and nice lighting. We come back on a regular basis for the food and service. Oh yes and the cocktails

Recently I took four friends. We enjoyed the full bar and a number of dishes for $100 approximately. I hadn't been in a while and was glad that everything was as good as I remembered.

We love the lettuce wraps and the potstickers as a starter, the Hong Kong style Chow Mein is excellent as well as the Asperagus Chicken, If your in the mood for the Honey Walnut shrimp they make them...

I have been enjoying this gem of a restaurant for years and am finally leaving them the kudos they deserve. The atmosphere is comfortably up-dated, the service great, and the food is amazing. The crab won tons melt in your mouth and the General Tsao Chicken does as well. There is a large appetizer dish served with a flaming hibachi... More

In Hayward on business and looking for good takeout. Had Pork potstickers & Singapore fried noodles. Really good flavors with quality ingredients and very fast service. Place was full of locals on a very rainy Sunday night.
