This is the perfect crossover restaurant, offering Chinese-American favorites alongside traditional dishes—all generously portioned. A dozen varieties of steamed buns and dumplings arrive in bamboo baskets while exotic appetizers of jellyfish, anchovies, and seaweed are offered, along with fried egg rolls and Chinese chicken salad. Check the house specialties first—don’t miss the steamed fish with ginger—knowing you can always play it safe by opting for the $27 family meal (three items, such as sweet-and-sour pork, served with chewy scallion pancakes or hot-and-sour soup). Large parties on the weekends can make the otherwise efficient service drag. The dining room is handsome, with a full bar that includes a selection of sake and Livermore Valley wines available by the glass. Lunch and dinner Wed.–Mon.
