We eat lunch at China Bistro regularly, and have always enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. They have a good variety of choices on their menu, including Dim Sum and daily Chef Specials. They have a Monday-Friday lunch combo menu, but recently discontinued the lunch combos on the weekends. We think that their pot stickers are some of the best... More

A group of friends had lunch there on a Saturday and the service was very good. All entrees served were tasty and enjoyed. Would recommend for groups of up to about 20.

Great traditional chinese fusion. We come here at least once a month. Great service and food! The staff are always up to par following up on each table consistently. Also great for parties and private events. Grub time!

This is one of the best Chinese restaurants in the area. The staff is very friendly. The cocktails are pretty good as well. Good place for large groups or small parties. Very accommodating.

I like to go early for happy hour ($4 cosmo - hello!) with a friend and sit at the fully stocked bar (which truthfully is quite small but works fine for us). Robert is super quick, makes good drinks and has worked there a long time so he knows everything on the menu and is happy to answer questions. They... More

Good food and service, hard to find entrance from retail parking lot behind street address, nice local melting pot crowd.

The soups are great. I like the Sizzling Rice best. The green beans are excellent and my grandkids all of us like the combination chow mien. Usually a chicken item like chicken and snow peas or chicken and asparagus and a beef mix with sweet and sour pork with an order of rice is more than enough for 6 of... More

I ordered shrimp foo young to go. Generally when I get the dish when dining in there are three patty's. When I ordered the take out I only received two. The two were nice and thick but I was disappointed that there were not three patty's! Not sure what happened but there were no fortune cookies included with the take... More

The name of the restaurant is hard to remember but the food isn't. Nice ambiance and food prepared to your specs. I am on a reduced salt diet so I get my sauces on the side. There is a large party room for bigger gatherings. My friends and I have lunch here at least twice a month. Highly recommend this... More

This is our goto local Chinese restaurant, hands down the best ambience for a sit-down Chinese cuisine in Hayward. Relatively speaking, the prices are on the higher side; however, the quality of food more than compensates for it. The only downside: we've gone to this place for years, the bartender seems to have no customer service skills whatsoever. I'll keep... More
