Excellent dim sum and service

We went here for dinner while visiting a friend in California. I was surprised how busy it was the night we went. We had to wait awhile for a table but it was worth the wait. The service was great and food was even better.

Last time here the food was okay. Don't expect a full dish load of food, they don't overload like some places, but the quality is better than some other places in Hayward and a little nicer. Although the people that go here could dress a little better, maybe they need a dress code!

I have been eating here for years- both lunch for two or larger family lunches or dinners. There is a large selection of items on the menu. The food and service are generally very good. There is a dim sum menu at lunch time. If you want to get in and out for a quick lunch, let your waiter know.

This is a fairly big and lively restaurants. The ambiance is excellent. Initially it took awhile for a hostess to take our order but things moved fast after that. We ordered Eggplant with basil and some tofu dishes and all were excellent. There were small slips such as bringing a bottle of bear but no glass to drink it with... More

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
