“Delicious food, swift service”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

Having found this restaurant on google 3 hours prior to dining, I was pleasantly suprised with what I found!
The menu was vast and reasonably priced, the service and food delivery was swift, and all of the food was very tasty and freshly cooked.
We had spicy prawns, the cold noodles and chicken and vegetables and each had their own individual fresh flavour with lots of depth.
I will definitely revisit when I am back in San Francisco!

“By far the best chinese food in the area”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

It's not easy finding good chinese food on the SF Bay peninsula. Almost all the chinese places are just terrible -- bad quality vegetables and meat. That is not the case here.

This place is great. Fresh, good quality ingredients. Good pot stickers and broccoli beef. Dry sauteed green beans are very good -- if you like more spice you can eat the pepper pods that come in the dish, if you avoid them the dish is pretty tame. I really haven't tried anything here that wasn't very good to excellent. This is THE only place to order chinese food in Redwood City.

If you get takeout, you can park in the lot in back and use the back entrance.

“Great Chinese Cuisine in Redwood City Area”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

Excellent food in downtown Redwood City. Reasonably priced with very high quality. The ambiance is nothing special but the food is. I have been here twice on business trip dinners in the last 3 months. Each time most of my guests were new to the restaurant and pleasantly surprised at the food - they all commented that they plan on returning. Service is good and very pleasant. Appears to attract a varied crowd as their was couples,families and business folks during both of the night is visited. I will be back.

“Exceptionally flavorful hidden gem!”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Have been so tired of the big chain restaurants and was looking for a casual Chinese restaurant for an early dinner on New Year's Ev. We found this place online and it had so many good recommendations we figured it was worth a try. What's so funny is that we have driven by the place many times and really never noticed it from the street.

Well, what a great dinner we had! I have been looking for a good Chinese restaurant that has good flavor without being too greasy or salty and this place is perfect. The interior of the restaurant is very casual, and jeans are perfect to wear. We had the BBQ pork chow main (great), Spicy garlic eggplant (amazing), dry roasted green beens (can't wait to have these again), and the 2 mushroom chicken (perfect).

We also had 2 appetizers which were the pot stickers and spring rolls. These were just OK. Next time we will try the chicken lettuce cups which looked really good (table next to us had them).

Will be going back to this restaurant over and over again!! And they do takeout!!
