This dim sum house (formerly named Koi Garden), an offshoot of Daly City’s famed Koi Palace, is easily the most elegant in the Tri-Valley. Plush green carpeting with a koi fish and lily pad motif and fresh orchids make for a sumptuous atmosphere, and the food is authentic Chinese. We loved the spinach dumplings, which burst with steamed greens and plump shrimp. Tender pork buns, chewy pot stickers, and a succulent dish of eggplant stuffed with shrimp also hit the spot. One very rich dish of wonderfully crackly, buttery phyllo threads filled with wild mushrooms was balanced out by an order of crisp, dark green Chinese broccoli with oyster sauce. Service is prompt and helpful, and guests order from a menu rather than plucking plates from roving waiters. Lunch and dinner daily.
