At friends recommendation, we went there for lunch. The place was packed. We waited more than 30 minutes to be seated. We ordered fried tofu and oil stick. Both are good. We ordered bean soup, steamed Bau and beef tendon noodle. The beef tendon was not tender at all. Steam Bau is average. Looking back I probably should have ordered beef noodle to be on the safe side. The bill came out to about $32. With tips, it is a $40 lunch for two. The service was good for such a busy lunch time crowded Chinese restaurant. The seatings are relatively comfortable.

Usually fill of Chinese, this local, small restaurant has fantastic food. Be sure to get the stashed soup dumplings. They are worth the time all by themselves...noodle dishes are also excellent...you won't be disappointed

Hard to find outside of the South Bay where the bulk of them seem to be. China bee is a nice find.

Soy milk, dough fritters, beef noodles and other noodle dishes are great. Homely and family atmosphere.

Family run restaurant with not much atmosphere but quite good regional dishes. Service attentive and menu quite large, one side all Chinese the other side English. Dishes served hot and fresh from the kitchen as done.

This small, out of the way chinese restaurant is one of the best on the peninsula. The style is true 'home cooking', portions are good and the price reasonable. There is virtually no ambience, just good food. There steamed pork dumplings are fabulous. A true find.
