Following an afternoon of shopping, we stopped by for a sampler of appetizers. We had the scallion flatbread, chive dumplings, fried tofu and rainbow poke - delicious! Presentation/service was awesome!

We stumbled upon this place because it was not yet so crowded and my sister loves Jasmine tea and all teas. We were not disappointed! I loved the option for outdoor seating, but enjoyed the beautiful dining area with a view of the ambulating east side shoppers from indoors. It was a little tight fight getting in and out of...

Been coming here recently for lunch and happy hour on breaks from shopping. While service is slow, the ambience is always lovely and the food is almost always good. We can always count on affordable lunch specials at any day of the week and we get to eat comfortably.

Second visit here and ordered the Dimsum, seated tuna salad, sea bass and garlic noodles. All good. Placento have a good mall while shopping at Stanford Shopping Mall.

Food was ok but overpriced. Service was not good. Constantly had to stay on wait staff for water, order, drinks etc. There are much much better options, even California pizza next door.

Really nice place in great location in the mall. Visited for dinner with 2 friends and family. I thought it was Asian fusion, but it was pretty dumbed down standard Chinese food without the flavors. Their version of Chinese Chicken salad was unbelievably bad, wrong noodles, no spice,no ginger, totally wrong mayo dressing dressing; the Chef should visit Roy's to... More

I went there with 3 friends for an early lunch. It was not too busy at 11. Reservation definitely recommended if later. The food was good and the portions were perfect for lunch. The most outstanding dish was the garlic noodle.

Full disclousure-- I have been to the original Yucca de Lac in Hong Kong. Actually in Shatin Kowloon years ago. It was a restaurant with a great view, good service, excellent food and a romantic spot for lovers. Back to the present, this Yucca de Lac has none of that, no I take it back, the service is also excellent.... More

This place looks gorgeous, and I had been meaning to try it for a while. I came here with my mom during a shopping trip at the Stanford Shopping Center, and we both ordered the lunch special... after a very, very, very long wait. Service was absurdly slow, especially given that the restaurant was mostly empty. We had vegetarian egg... More
