Just went for some take out. Restaurant decorated nice. Took a while for food to come and nothing special about it. Tasted like your every day Chinese food.

Pretty much the same menu as the old owner. The owners have made substantial decorative improvements. Low prices for lunch, served with soup and salad. Good Chinese food

The atmosphere and the decor was nice. Our server was horrible she only checked on us one time and she wasn't even busy. The food I thought was ok for the price you pay.

After traveling all over the world, I couldn't wait to have Chinese food here! The decor is reminiscent of palaces in China and sometimes on the weekends, there is someone playing the Chinese piano. The food is fantastic. My favorites are the chicken wings, westlake soup, pepper steak, any of the clay pots, the vegetables... really, everything! It's nice to... More

We decided to come here for lunch. There was another Chinese restaurant here years ago. New owners did a great job remodeling with authentic Chinese furniture. The decor was nice also. It is like stepping into a wealthy family's house for a meal. Menu had many good choices. Prices were on the higher side. Presentation and portions were ample and... More

This excellent Alameda Chinese restaurant is a bit of a hidden gem, hidden away in the Harbor Bay Shopping Center. We eat here every couple of months, and have been coming here for many years. The restaurant itself is decorated beautifully, and located right on a large lagoon, the views are beautiful, so the dining atmosphere is great. The restaurant... More

Very quiet restaurant, overlooking an inlet, complete with ducks swimming. Took my crew of 5 for dinner, ordered the $16 per person meal, and was not disappointed. Enough food for 10, tasty, good service.

While at the Chuck Corica Golf Complex, several lady golfing friends informed me about this restaurant nearby with "good" Chinese food at reasonable prices for their LUNCH SPECIAL. We were greeted by the hostess, and six of us were seated by the window facing a nearby lagoon. The waiter gave us a menu, and I noticed a HUGE list of... More

There are not a ton of lunch options on Bay Farm, but China Villa is a good choice. I really like the basil eggplant and can't bring myself to order something different each time I visit. They offer brown rice as an option, which is a great alternative to white rice for me. It's nothing fancy, but the views are... More

I ordered the Sigaporean rice noodles. However, the dish did not come with rice noodles. Instead, the noodles used were Asian vermicelli or 'glassy noodles'. That being said, the flavor was great and the vegetables were fresh.
