“Great food, drinks, people watching at Santana Row”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

If you like progressive chinese food, good saki, good beer/drinks, and people watching, Sino's is a must do while at Santana Row. Great outdoor seating and bar scene at night is fun and crowded. Happy Hour can be hit or miss as it has limited beers, drinks but food choices are very good and location is excellent.

“Dim Sum First Rate”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

If you enjoy dim sum, try Sino located in Santana Row. It is not cheap but still is a good value. Orders are taken at the table and cooked to order. Sui mi and Har gow are two favorites and a must for any dim sum lunch.

Service is good and a full bar is available also. Eat inside or outside in a good atmosphere. If you prefer larger plates the menu features many Chinese classics and several unique choices. I think you will be pleased with this restaurant.

Dinner is also served but have not yet tried it.

“Real Chinese dishes to please”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

If you can get a table at this busy place, it is worth it with fine authentic Chinese small plates to enjoy. Make reservations or get there early on weekends, as part of the busy scene at Santana Row.

“I really like...”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

I really like this restaurant. If you order the right dishes, you will be pleasantly surprised. I especially like their non-alcoholic drinks with thai basil, etc... very refreshing.

Sometimes the music is blaring so loud it is quite uncomfortable. However, they do offer a few different seating areas and the back room seems to be insulated from what can be a crazy-loud bar scene in the front. So when you are being seated, indicate your noise-level preference!

the sea bass was so delicious! melt in your mouth. Dim sum is awesome, drinks are great. It's pretty noisy so you have to be ok with that
