Ordered the veggie potstickers, which were pretty great. The veggie Kung Pao left something to be desired though....somewhat bland. I did get a lot of mileage out of those two items (three meals), but it felt expensive since the taste was somewhat forgetful. Friendly service for to-go order was a plus though.

The best Chinese food I've had in a long time! The food was freshly prepared and nicely seasoned. The pork fried rice was some of the best I've ever had. The mu shu pork was good, although the pancakes weren't warm. We would stop here again.

We moved from the South Bay 6 months ago and have been looking ever since for a good Chinese restaurant. Tonight we ate at Lily Kai and I think we have found it. My benchmark is a good War Won Ton Soup, and tonight we were not disappointed in their Wah Won Ton Soup....very fresh asparagus, mushrooms, large chunks of... More

Filthy menus...uncomfortable booth. Hole in the wall. Terrible food we couldn't even eat.It was packed for Chinese New Year. OMG! This was the worst Chinese food I've ever had and the menus were filthy. All of the menus at our table were sticking together! The booth we had in the back, left corner was so broken down that you could... More

Went here for lunch. The lunch crowd was in full swing. The pineapple chicken was so delicious. The noodles were plain but so so good. They offered flower and hot and sour soup but not my favorites so I passed. The egg roll was crunchy and hot so very fresh. The potstickers were nicely browned and flavorful. We will be... More

Loved their fried rice side. Rice isn't such a simple thing to do perfectly... this was flavorful and fluffy without being dry. Their lunch special is enough for 2 meals! What I absolutely loved, and realize now that I've been missing in Chinese food and similar, was the big, chunky pieces of healthy looking food! I feel that most restaurants... More

We were greeted promptly by the staff with a warm welcome to the restaurant. We had the sweet and sour chicken and the cashew chicken. Both dishes were great! The hot and sour soup also was great! The service was above average too. We have been there a few times when we have visited CA. We are never disappointed.
