“Excellent for what it is”
Reviewed 8 September 2012

First of all, I don't claim to be a dim sum connoisseur. I only go to dim sum a few times a year because I can't be trusted to watch how much I eat. I've been going to ABC every year for an annual dim sum lunch outing with friends and we've always had great food, acceptable service and a great time.

The 2 or 3 times we've eaten dinner here we've been impressed by the service, variety and quality of the food. It's much more relaxed and the service is better at night than during the day. While picking food off dim sum carts is easy to do - getting a drink refill at lunch didn't always seem very easy.

Since many dim sum restaurants don't have great ambiance, ABC is a good combination of good dim sum, nice atmosphere and reasonable prices. Our group always pigs out (it seems) and we still get by for $20 a person including drinks (non alcoholic) and tip. That's pretty good for a 2 hour eat till you're stuffed lunch.

“Very Good Dim Sum and Seafood”
Reviewed 18 April 2012

Very good selection of dim sum, nice add ons such as crab, lobster, fish, etc. The restaurant is very large on the second floor and there is no sense of crowding. It is Cantonese style.

“Top Quality Chinese food in Silicon Valley, Excellent restaurant”
Reviewed 15 October 2009

Top Quality Chinese food in Silicon Valley. Excellent Cantonese style seafood restaurant, one of the best in the South Bay. Yes, this restaurant is busy for lunch (dim sum = tea cake) and typical weekend wait over half hour or long. Excellent dinner and less crowded. But, like all the best Chinese restaurants, the rule of thumb is busier, noisier, more crowed, more popular by the locals, the better the restaurant. Yes, this restaurant is one of local favorites. Yes, it is pricey. Yes, the parking lot is always full and spill into the street. Yes, the bathroom (men has open windows with view facing the freeway) may not be spotless. The food choice and quality and taste is of the best, probably including those in San Francisco Chinatown. Beware of wedding banquet s taking over the entire restaurant in the Saturday evenings. So call ahead.
