Please eat here, the food is so good. A must try is the potstickers! I often call ahead and order takeout for lunch. The steamed chicken and vegetables is my personal favorite. Love this place.

You can see any type of dress here - shorts, dress pants, suits, etc. So it's not an "upscale, need reservations" restaurant, but the prices are equal to an upscale restaurant. Everything is delicious, don't get me wrong, but $12 for a bowl of noodles? Service is always great, but not an every Friday night spot.

It was great dining experience. Amazing food. I love the pork fried rice. And sushi. The pan fried dumplings are really good as well. Definitely need to go back.

This was my first visit to Antai and my only regret is that I did not find it sooner. This is a gourmet sushi restaurant, but with many other offerings. One friend ordered sushi, the other ordered just plain warm noodles with a side of calamari and I ordered "Many Blessings", which is a combination of shitake mushrooms, broccoli, carrots,... More

I can't tell you how many times I've been here, but my family and I love to come here. Everything from the sushi, to the entrees like sesame chicken, soup and noodles and everything else that offers is fantastic. I have not had a bad meal there yet. The staff is extremely friendly and we have actually made it our... More

Antai is a small, Chinese restaurant tucked into a strip mall just off Sunset Blvd. It is located on the opposite side of the street from Target. We arrived at 6:30PM on a Tuesday. The restaurant was already full with only 2 tables available. The wait staff were prompt, courteous and friendly. All of us ordered traditional Chinese fare. I... More

Amazing restaurant. Owners put effort into managing every little detail. Never disappoints. Fish is fresh daily and they do not skimp on quality. A must try.

I arrived in town relatively late in the evening and many places were getting sort of late to go to. I asked at my hotel if they could recommend a place and this is what they came up with. It was a bit of a drive, not too bad, but I'm glad I came here. The food was very good... More

The meals looked good but I didn't care for any of the sushi I ordered which is rare. I usually stick to what I know I like but the salmon was chopped up like it had been chewed already. Not appetizing. Sat at a table with another party we didn't know with just a partition on the table separating us.... More
