Had a business lunch here. Always a challenge to find a quality, reasonable place in Palo Alto that makes it under company expense limits. This place has excellent, well prepared food at a flat lunch price of $12.00 for all menu items. First you get a choice of soup or salad, then an eggroll as an appetizer followed by a... More

This is a fun family run place with great food. Fresh vegetable dishes are really fresh. We had the spring rolls and 2 veggie dishes. The waitstaff is amazing and wants to make you visit great. There is inside and outside seating. Will go again soon.

Whether one orders take out or dines in, the food here is consistently good. The service is always friendly and pleasant, and welcoming. The inside ambience is quite nice, and one can even dine in the glittery garden for an outside feel. There is a lot to choose from o the menu, and I especially like that they can make... More

The inside of this restaurant was a surprise. It was not your typical chinese decor but had a outdoor patio with tables and flowers that seems part of the dining room as it's separated by lots of sliding glass doors. The menu was very typical but our dishes were more individual and well prepared than usual. We were there for... More

Ordered take-out and was quite pleased. Service was fast, and each of the entrees and soups were excellent. Perhaps a tad bit higher priced than what I am used to paying for Chinese food, but perhaps in line for Palo Alto.

We were 15 of us, veg and non veg. The non veg food was excellent! Never tasted delicious chinese food in a long long time!! The server was friendly, patient ( specially since there were vegetarians who didnt eat egg, mushroom, ginger garlic ) they accomodated all the requests except for one which was not made as per the request....

This is one of many of our favorites when we visit Palo Alto. The owner and staff are very pleasant and willing to provide service as you wish. We visited with friends and had a very nice meal and time to enjoy our friendship. The owner was gracious providing that special extra that we always appreciate. I have no hesitation... More

My mouth is watering just writing this review! I love H&S soup and this is some of the best--chocked full of yummy goodness with a silky broth that makes it impossible to stop slurping. There is not a bad dish on the menu but I usually pig out on the soup so the rest goes home for the next day.... More

I have known the owner, Simon Yuan, for over 30 years. I first met him, and his family, at the Hunan Homes restaurant in San Francisco's China Town (also an excellent restaurant). Simon is not only a great friend, but an outstanding host. He is extremely personable, and will take the time to talk with you and your guests. His... More
