Not the greatest Chinese food and very expensive. We ordered a combination chow mein, sweet and sour chicken and 2 sodas. The bill was $45. I thought that was a little steep. The beef in the chow mein tasted weird so I didn't eat it. The sweet and sour chicken was better. I would not go back.

Almond chicken with loads of noodles. Tofu and veggies. It was very good. White table cloths and good service. In a strip mall next to Safeway and near the San Francisco R.V. Resort.

We had a lovely meal here one evening. The food was good and freshly made, it was quiet as well so our service very fast. Our waiter JT was great, very professional but also funny and full of good food advice. The pot stickers for a starter are great and are perfect for sharing as you get 6 large ones.... More

The lunch menu was great...something for everyone! There were seven of us and we were seated immediately. The food was served promptly and was delicious. It was pricier than most lunches but worth every bite. We took leftovers home!! It was very very clean!!

Best Chinese food outside of China Town. Very nice restaurant with lovely décor. They even have table clothes and a full bar. Food is always good although sometimes the take out orders are mixed up so check your order before you leave. It's a pain when you have to return to correct their mistake ( a 30min detour) and they... More

Is there a ranking lower than terrible? If there is, it would still be better than this dump deserves. Service is marginally acceptable, but the food is awful. Lunch is especially bad; appears to be last night's leftovers tossed into a mixer. Avoid at all costs.
