One of the best "Chiu Chow" ethnic style Cantonese Chinese food in Silicon Valley. Excellent food quality for Chinese food, probably one of the best in North America. Yes, dishes are pricey. Yes, the atmosphere is non-romantic typical noisy and busy Chinese restaurant. Yes, the furnishing is modest in the middle of grocery plaza. This restaurant caters to people who know what top quality Chinese food - Cantonese called "eat family" and This restaurant serves these people well. Yes, best daily dishes are often not in the menu, and dish names are confusing and difficult to name, for the not in the know. Waiters (often in the best Chinese restaurant, the waiters are men and not the same as food servers) will offer long discussion (in Chinese) about the selection and availability of dishes. So, I found friends who know how, and ask them to bring me and teach me how to select and enjoy. You should do same. Parking is crowded during lunch, but plenty for dinner.
