“Great Mandarin food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Love this place, especially on the weekends when they have lots of Mandarin style dim sum available. We have tried both dinner and lunch and the food is equally good. Their vegan steamed dumpling is a must! Yum! Service is usually very good, especially if you get Fannie, Alex or Robert. Give them a try!

“Great Chinese Food, Wonderful Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

My good friend lives in L.A. and wishes China Stix was near her house. She loves Chinese food and lived in China for a year.

I eat here as often as possible - both dine in and take out. Service is fast and friendly. The food is always fresh and hot. I love Mandarin Chicken, Salt n' Pepper flounder, Mu Shu Vegetables, Basil with hot garlic sauce, and Pea Sprouts. If you can read Chinese, ask for their special menu. One item is "Lollipop" Chicken - tasty, sweet n' sour, drummettes.

“Family Owned Authentic Chinese food restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2012

Different from general chinese restaurants in the valley... Family owned and hence tasty I suppose! Chili/Pepper lobster, Fire Chicken are some of my favorites.. One thing I love about this place is just because it is chinese cuisine, you will not find excessive Soy here for the sake of it!

“Average Chinese food, nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2012

Had two big family dinners here (10+ ppl each time). I'm not sure why my San Jose family keeps picking this restaurant. There's nothing special or memorable about the food, and I'm Chinese.
