uncrowded upscale non-Asian restaurant in increasingly Chinese community of Millbrae. plenty of safe parking (unlike the rest of Millbrae) and almost has the same vibe as the Historic 1930s era El Rancho that this Hotel replaced.

Had a quick dinner of appetizers and bear. The variety of choices let us balance out our dinner using only the appetizers.

Attractive inside and out. Competent, efficient service. All the food was well-prepared food except my burger (overcooked and dry). I don't think you'll be disappointed. Dinner with two drinks each = $90 (incl tip).
