Had generals chicken. Heavy on the garlic... Asked for steamed brown rice, received white steamed rice. I did see a lot of great looking food coming out of the kitchen, so it's worth a try.

I've eaten at Lai Lai for years, but this was the first time I ordered ahead for take out. We got exactly what we ordered with large portions and reasonable prices and it was ready when expected. Another great facet for a great Millbrae institution.

There are a lot of Chinese Restaurant options in Millbrae but Lai Lai has stood the test of time.... it's been here for many many years and the locals still choose it as their spot.... Vintage menu options and great service
