Reviewed 15 November 2012

Maybe not the best restaurant compared to other Chinese restaurants but the best things about this place is that it seres halal meat and the price is very decent. The lunch menu is quite extensive, their portions are big and the price under $8. Their service is fast as well and they are able to accommodate bigger groups and have 2 different rooms that you can book other then sitting in the main restaurant.

The food quality used to be good and was one of the reasons why the bad service was tolerable. But their food quality had gone down considerably and the service stayed equally bad. We stopped going there a while ago and have found other chinese restaurants with good food and good service

I don't see many review on this restaurant. Therefore, I decided to share with you my experience since I visit there fairly often.

Just like many other Chinese restaurants, this one can be easily misunderstood. You are likely to miss the good food there and walk out thinking this is yet another slightly-above-average restaurant.

Please don't go for any Mu-Shu, kung pao, sweet and sour, or any familiar Americanized dishes. You should only come if you would like to explore real Chinese food. If you don't have a guide to take you there, here are some dishes you must try.
Ox-Tail Stew
Lamb Pan Fried Noodles
Sesame Bread With Green Onion (thick kind)
Hunan Lamb Spicy
Beef With Sa Cha Sauce
Lamb With Pickled Cabbage Warm Pot

Very popular Chinese restaurant in this area. Expect a wait during meal times, so go early. Once seated, service is quite fast.

Our family's favorite is the 2 portion live fish dish, which comes as a soup and steamed fresh with soy sauce. The soup is delicious and the fish is fresh. But order with a bigger group, as is enough for 5-6 people.

Other favorite dishes include the Orange beef (crispy!), bean curd casserole, walnut shrimp.

This is one of the handful of Chinese restaurants in the Bay Area that serves halal food (according to Muslim rites). No pork and no alcohol served. Hence you often see a varied clientele here and often middle-eastern and south asian customers too. Very popular with non-Muslim Chinese crowd too!

The manager is friendly towards kids. A few times, he gave out small toys to our kids!

Very tasty food. Some people find it overly greasy/oily but they have a good mix of dishes.

The scallion/sesame bread is definitely a favorite for most people.
