This is just a great, friendly family Chinese restaurant. All the favorites are here. Totally loved every bite of the four course vegetarian meal. And the red bean sesame balls for dessert are to die for. Super popular and a great, fun atmosphere.

I wanted something quick and reasonable, so I ordered shrimp with honey walnuts. They also serve hot saki, a Japanese rice wine. In my experience, Chinese rice wine is dreadful. The service was good and the serving was large enough for a leftover.

We needed a small bite to finish off our night and stopped by to pick up a serving of broccoli beef. Service was quick, helpful and the food was good, and enjoyable.

This is mainly a young locals place. The food is nothing to write home about but acceptable. The hot and sour soup is black pepper hot instead of ginger and red pepper so if like us that does not suit you, avoid.

My gf is a vegan. I am not. We both had great dinners with some of the freshest ingredients we've ever tasted at a Chinese restaurant. If you are in Calistoga and wanna go somewhere affordable and not wine related...then go here!

I finally had dinner at Soo Yuan after a lazy Saturday afternoon and it was an amazing experience. The restaurant reminds me a lot of many of the family restaurants I used to eat at in Mainland China. The food is very fresh - the best I have had in Napa Valley. The service could not be any better and... More

If you have even eaten good, authentic Chinese food, you could never give this restaurant more than one star. We had to wait until the server finished his lunch before he took our order, and he could not have been less enthusiastic about the task. Everything we ordered was cooked in the same unappetizing brown sauce; the kung pao chicken... More

A little sign on the menu posted in the window promised "green onion pancakes." Never having had one, I had to try one and so did my two companions. We all agreed they were crispy and delicious. Add an order of Kung Pao Prawns and Chicken and Mixed Vegetables and the three of us dined royally. Both dishes included excellent... More
