My parents were in the mood for dim sum and I chose Koi Palace because I saw in the reviews that there was normally a wait. We went on a Sunday at around 10:30 expecting to sit down and eat at around 11am. There were probably 10 parties in line before us. We were seated around 11am as I expected.... More

You have to make it here for the Dim Sum! We love rushing over to get ahead of the crowd. Yes! Crowd. This is a popular Tri-Valley eatery. Koi Palace deserves a ton of credit. They're very organized and fair when it comes to seating patrons. We love the staff. They're buttoned up and cordial. I love the servers mask... More

You will receive very fatty duck, and below par dishes, if you don't meet the cultural criteria. Even my Asian friends and acquaintances, said if you don't fit in with their chosen cultural class, you will not be served the best dishes, or mixed drinks. I took Her Grace, here, my first visit. She was in no rush to go... More

We went to Koi Palace in Dublin with a couple of friends on our way to the new premium outlet store in Livermore . Like the original Koi Palace in Daly City, the dum sums were second to none in the SF Bay Area. The Koi Palace in Dublin was more spacious and a lot quieter than the one in... More

We were visiting family members in the area and this is their go-to dim sum establishment. It's packed on weekends. We ordered a variety of items that are easily found in other dim sum eateries but our most memorable dishes were the durian tart (yes, it's pungent), and a special order of lobster yee mein.

We went here on Father's Day and were careful to arrive at least 20 minutes before opening time to get in line. We were able to be seated immediately upon opening, even though we had a party of ten. Instead of opting for the standard dim sum fare, we ate slowly to be able to take advantage of the many... More

We knew we were in the right space given the long lines waiting for it to open. But this place has two sides and quickly got our table of 14 in to eat. Lots of Asians here and the reason is the food is so good, served in generous portions, and reasonably priced. The staff is fast moving and the... More

Koi Palace is a local favorite for Dim Sum. The place is packed on the weekend but you can always get in with a brief wait. The quality of the food make the wait worth while.

We really like the food here. It's always very crowded, which is unfortunate, but the staff is quite good, and the food is excellent.

Weekends here are crowded and hectic, with rude, exhausted staff attending to your table. Weekdays are much better. There are several very good dishes. A few are not so good. I was excited about the durian puff, but personally didn't like the onion taste they had- was unsure if this was on purpose or buy mistake (fried in the same... More
