Right on the main street and within walking distance of hotel row!

Close to La Quinta, fast service and many wonderful Chinese/American choices. We had several choices to share and loved this quaint local venue.

This is my families go to place for Chinese take out. I love the salt and pepper pork chops, Szechuan beef and pot stickers!

Not too impressed. Service was very "cold", impersonal and frankly disappointing. Food was cold by the time I dished up a second plate. Imagine having a candle warmer at the table to keep your rice and entree warm... There are too many other options in Millbrae to be just mediocre. Lest they do some work on their business plan ...

I dined alone at Chef Wang and they didn't appear to mind serving a single party. This neighborhood Chinese restaurant is an awesome find. The delicious pot stickers (6 to an order) were a ginger infused delight and could have been a meal by themselves. My entree of mushu pork was a light mix of lean pork and cabbage and... More

I can't wait to go back. The pot stickers were to die for! All of the ingredients were fresh and home made. It is not a fancy place, it is a nice, clean local family restaurant. Everything we tried was authentic and good. It is near the San Francisco Airport and worth the stop if you are in the area.

Chef Wang offers basic Chinese fare, speedy service and moderate prices. Seafood and vegetables are fresh and well-prepared, and the ice cold Tsingtao beer is refreshing. The décor is unremarkable; noise levels were low when we ate there, but we arrived late and had missed the busy dinner hour. Many of the more interesting menu items (we assume) are the... More

We went here at the recommendation of the owner of the hotel we were staying at. It's just across the street (El Camino Real) but not an easy one to cross. The appetizers were quite good--a set of egg rolls with a not-too-sweet dipping sauce. I had a small (read huge) bowl of wor wonton that was very tasty with... More

Stopped here for lunch on the recommendation of our shuttle driver. Nice, local place. Much of the menu is in Chinese and most of the lunch guests were Chinese - a good sign. I went with the mango beef and my colleague had the asparagus beef. Mine was a little light on the meant, but otherwise very tasty. Lunches cam... More

Had a Chinese Combination meal, very pleased with service and price. This is where the local Chinese go to eat, so that says it all !

Stopped here for a quick dinner based on a recommendation from my hotel clerk. Great atmosphere with most patrons conversing in Chinese -- place had a comfortable, neighborhood feel. The food was very good (and the options were nearly infinite), delivered quickly and the staff was friendly and helpful. A nice find for a very relaxing evening on the road.
