Average is not bad. They have a mostly traditional menu with a few slightly unique options. You do get a lot of food. Dim sum is a big deal here but I chose something different.

CalE has great lunch specials! Huge portions, great food, great service and a bright sun-drenched room. For the lunch specials, you pick your protein and sauce / preparation, and egg rolls or potstickers. All choices are excellent and arrived July.

We've been ordering take out from CaiE for a few years now. We've always been a little disgruntled with the service but this last visit has convinced us to find a new restaurant. Christmas Eve we called in an $100 plus order early in the day to give them plenty of warning. We arrived at the specified time only to... More

The world is filled with oriental restaurants in shopping centers. Caie's is no ordinary restaurant. The food is reasonably priced and the dim sum was good beyond our expectations. In fact, this café was such a find that we visited twice during our stay. They serve draft beer and some wines. I do not know if spirits are on their... More

Dim Sum was a disappointment. Places I've had it before a little cart came by and you picked the items. Also, they didn't have the variety I'm used to. But, their calamari was tremendous and the tangerine chicken was very good also. Our server was the nicest guy ever!

Got takeout from here last night, the menu at least for takeout has your standard options. We got the kung pow chicken, ordered it with cashews and came with peanuts, which for us wasn't a huge deal but certainly could be dangerous if you had an allergy! The sesame chicken was delicious, your standard fried chicken with sauce. House fried... More

Best Chinese food I have had in years. Started with the dim sum sampler - fresh, tender and perfect. We ordered the tangerine pork and pan fried noodles. Finger licking good! Ordered some pork fried rice with extra BBQ pork to drop off at our college aged son's house. He called me 30 minutes later to say it was the... More

Searched for dim sum in Reno and found this. Sadly the dim sum we were served must have been leftover from at least the day before and then reheated. Some actually tasted bad like spoiled

I was excited to try a local eatery and looked forward to having a good experience. We got 2 dishes to go. I was hopeful that the bustling to go business was a precursor to a good diner. Well, not to be. The Toa's chicken was ridiculously over cooked and salty. Uneatable.

We stopped here because it was close to our hotel and we were too tired to go farther. It's located in an unremarkable supermarket strip mall. Didn't have too high a hopes, but was proved wrong. It doesn't seem like the menu has been as americanized as most chinese restaurants. Food was excellent and more authentic. Surprisingly, the crab rangoon... More
