We have been coming here for years and it is always good. We enjoy the kung pao shrimp, string beans with black bean sauce and garlic shrimp as well as many other dishes. The service is always good.

Service was slow and waiter's English was poor, had trouble understanding my simple order. The chicken dish I got was weird, it was fried but the pieces were super small so it felt like all I was eating was breading. Will never return.

Servers are erratic . . . as is the kitchen. Been there for dinner and lunch . . . like I said, it's conveniently located. Never great, occasionally pretty awful. Nobody in the kitchen takes pride in what they do . . . they simply sling hash! Could use a good steam-cleaning and some team-building. Nobody seems to know what... More

CalE has great lunch specials! Huge portions, great food, great service and a bright sun-drenched room. For the lunch specials, you pick your protein and sauce / preparation, and egg rolls or potstickers. All choices are excellent and arrived July.

We've been ordering take out from CaiE for a few years now. We've always been a little disgruntled with the service but this last visit has convinced us to find a new restaurant. Christmas Eve we called in an $100 plus order early in the day to give them plenty of warning. We arrived at the specified time only to... More

The world is filled with oriental restaurants in shopping centers. Caie's is no ordinary restaurant. The food is reasonably priced and the dim sum was good beyond our expectations. In fact, this café was such a find that we visited twice during our stay. They serve draft beer and some wines. I do not know if spirits are on their... More

Average is not bad. They have a mostly traditional menu with a few slightly unique options. You do get a lot of food. Dim sum is a big deal here but I chose something different.

Dim Sum was a disappointment. Places I've had it before a little cart came by and you picked the items. Also, they didn't have the variety I'm used to. But, their calamari was tremendous and the tangerine chicken was very good also. Our server was the nicest guy ever!

Got takeout from here last night, the menu at least for takeout has your standard options. We got the kung pow chicken, ordered it with cashews and came with peanuts, which for us wasn't a huge deal but certainly could be dangerous if you had an allergy! The sesame chicken was delicious, your standard fried chicken with sauce. House fried... More

Best Chinese food I have had in years. Started with the dim sum sampler - fresh, tender and perfect. We ordered the tangerine pork and pan fried noodles. Finger licking good! Ordered some pork fried rice with extra BBQ pork to drop off at our college aged son's house. He called me 30 minutes later to say it was the... More
