I had seen an article on Yahoo about the 10 best Chinese restaurants in the U.S. and Koi Palace was listed. Since we were planning a trip driving up the California coast I made sure our trip allowed us to eat there on our first night. WOW. From the parking lot the restaurant looked like you typical small Chinese neighborhood restaurant, but when we entered it was very large restaurant typical of what you would find in Chinatown in NYC. The menu was unbelievable. So many different choices and dishes. The food was as good as I have ever had in a Chinese restaurant. Cannot wait to go back again.
