Eight of us went for our New Year's eve dinner. They didn't take reservations so we had a half hour wait. No problem. We had several bottles of very good champagnes so we opend one and enjoyed our wait. The food is always fresh and tasty. Lily was stationed in the kitchen making sure all went smoothly. I am sure...

Stopped here for lunch. Lunch entrees come with an appetizer, soup, and rice. Several vegetarian options. I got the shezuan tofu. Big fried tofu cubes with vegetables in a spicy sauce topped with peanuts. Yummy. The hot and sour soup is vegetarian and phenomenal. Egg roll was just ok. I want to come back and check out more options. Good... More

Can't believe its same restaurant. Frequently dined for dinner. Favorites are the salmon on green beans and black bean sauce and the sizzling seafood platter . Big plates, fresh ingredients, appealing presentation and good service. Different menu at lunch and is like a different place. I do not recommend lunch there but thumbs up for dinner.

On a Fridaya night we waited about 10 minutes, it was very tight and crowded (like most Petaluma restaurants on a Friday night). The Won Tons in our soup were frozen, our waiter re-heated the soup and brought it back to us. The food was very good, large portions. I would go back for lunch, maybe dinner during the week...

We were visiting Central CA for vacation and our friends with us suggesting going out for Chinese food. I had never been to a restaurant that served dishes family-style and I was not aware that this was one of them. So I was pleasantly surprised when these large dishes came out and took up all of our table space. It... More

We enjoyed an excellent Chinese meal, as fine and authentic as any meal we had in China. Service also top notch.

The food is too sweet, definite not authentic. We are the only Chinese there. The white couple who sit next to us came in 10 minutes after us, and got all their food 15 minutes before us. Terrible experience.

This little hole in the wall is amazing. Thank goodness Mr. Pickle Sandwich shop was closed because that's where we were headed. Saw Lily Kai and said Chinese sounds good so we went in. Amazing, just amazing. We had the Wonton Soup, small, thank goodness our server said it was more then enough for both of us, which it was.... More
