Excellent Chinese dishes. Hot/Sour soup is among the best. Generals Chicken is also a favorite and specialty there. Try it, you'll like it too.

We had 12 people for a birthday party here, and we had reserved their private room. We chose to order the standard selection of dishes to share (about $20/person). The food was good and plentiful, and there was ample meat included in the selection of dishes. The selection of Chinese dishes was good, but they serve no coffee (only Chinese... More

The dishes were typical of Chinese food for the American tastes. Sweet, salty, some crisp vegetables and overcooked chow mien noodles are the norm. Nothing distinctive in flavor but all adequate. The service was slow with one dish coming 10 minutes after 3 others were served. This was probably the kitchen's issue even though the restaurant was not that busy.... More

We visited this restaurant but ended up getting take out. Food was good, nothing exceptional, but good. The black bean chicken was very good. Spring rolls were a bit greasy. Service quick. Atmosphere looked a little lacking from where we stood...lots of bright lighting. Overall...a perfectly adequate Chinese restaurant and take out.

We held the university of Dayton Alumni reunion at my favourite Chinese restaurant and they really took care of us. From providing us with a private dining room and attentive service to great food, all of us had a wonderful experience. The menu is extensive and the food well cooked and served hot. But book well in advance if you... More

I have been coming to this place for assertions 30 years. Always classy, delicious and a must to visit every time I come back to San Jose. My favorites? Tangerine beef and honey walnut prawns. Highly recommended

We just love this Chinese restaurant and have celebrated all our family events here for the past 3 decades. The food is excellent and sets the standard of Chinese food in USA. Unfortunately 3 trips to China reveals that the food there is not as good!! Here the service is impeccable and the ambience is welcoming with tables and booths... More

Good food. Really annoying that they tend to deliver your entrees while you are still working on your appetizers. Not the kind of leisurely dining you would expect at this price point.

Went for lunch with a friend while visiting San Jose. The food was better than I recently had in China. Atmosphere a step up from most Chinese Restaurant. Fresh and well seasoned. I ended up ordering take out to take home for dinner.
