It's a Mystery – It's a mystery why this place was filled up with people on a recent Friday afternoon. The only possible explanation is the proximity to the nearby Redwood Shores business center -- because the food sure didn't justify the crowd. On my first (and only) time there, I was "greeted" by an unfriendly hostess, led to a table which was shoved close to the next table (very crowded). I then waited about 10 minutes when someone brought me a bowl of something they had the nerve to call "hot and sour soup." It was not hot in any sense of the word (it was lukewarm) and it sure wasn't sour -- it barely had any flavor. I ordered a generic meal (sweet and sour chicken) and it was generic. I waited for the check, but ended up just going to the cashier to pay and get out of there. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone; I'll leave it to the mystery writers out there to figure out how in the world this place has stayed in business.
Redwood Shores only – There are so many good Chinese restaurants in the Bay area and, specificaly, mid-peninsula that the only reason I end up eating/taking out here is convenience. So, if you're not in the Redwood Shores area (by EA and Oracle) don't waste your time if you want good Chinese food. The food is extremely bland and almost watered down in taste. Although unfriendly service is not unusual in a Chinese restaurant, these people can appear stuck-up! The price isn't even an attraction!
Bland and tasteless – Yeah! was highly recommended to me and I was extremely disappointed. The General Tsao's Chicken was mushy and the flavor was off. We also ordered the broccoli beef, and requested it be made spicy, but very bland and uninteresting. The other weird thing was that I asked for egg rolls and received spring rolls and when I requested orange duck sauce, they gave me some kind of sweet brown sauce. This experience left us disappointed and searching through our panty and fridge for something else to eat.
I like the fake meat menu since I am a vegetarian. Their Fake Orange Flavored Beef is SOOOO good, it has the texture of Oranged flavored meet. The outer layer has a carmelization crunch! YUM! I also order their vegetable fried brown rice. Try it! You won't regret it!
Needs more flair – Food is basic - nothing special, just OK.
The menu doesn't have anything special or that pops up as "YEAH!".
They do not deliver like they advertise and they aren't very helpful over the phone.
TVs and a bar don't make up for all of that.
Editorial Review – Chinese restaurant with multiple televisions and full bar serves lunch and dinner a la carte, smoothies, coffee drinks; catering available.
