They do a grand business in 'take-out'. Always a waiting line. Three phones to take orders... well worth it!! The Peking Duck is the best in the area. Not crazy about the sweet and sour prawns... too much batter and too little sauce. Everything is fresh and hot. Menu on the internet is a great place to start.

Excellent food, service and environment. Very popular spot. Grab a potent Mai Tai at the bar while you wait.

A silicon valley fixture. Great, uncluttered Chinese food following pretty much the same formula for (at least) the more than 30 years I have been going there. The crowds of customers and long wait times attest to its enduring popularity.Quite an extensive menu with a lot of fan favorites. On the days that they pull it off, some of the... More

This restaurant is always busy. They own a parking lot just off the of Sherwood. No matter how busy it is, you can always find parking there. The inside and the outside of the building is getting a little tired, but the food is always great.

We came here became a friend recommended us to try this place. We heard that this place is pretty hype as its customers are some famous people. We made our reservation via phone but we ended up waiting for quiet some time after we reached to the restaurant. The restaurant was crowded. The food was average. Maybe the best part... More

Never a bad meal here. My wife (princess) first started enjoying food here decades ago when it was only a takeout place. There is a reason it has grown and grown to a large restaurant. It is fantastic! I fell in love with it my first visit and always look forward to our returns. There have been many returns over... More
