3.5 out of 5 stars Veg menu has lots of choices, but couldn't verify if all were vegan. Food was very OK, typical Chinese-American food. Host (owner?) was a nice guy, but the other two waiters were suffering from PDD (Personality Deficit Disorder). Certainly no match for the Bay Area's better veg-friendly restaurants, but pickings on the Peninsula are rather slim. I prefer Fon Yong in San Carlos. greg

4 out of 5 stars They have a separate vegetarian menu - you can view it online for pickup/delivery or ask for it in person. They deliver in San Mateo and Belmont. Their tofu dishes are very good, as well as their mock meats. The veggie wonton soup is fantastic. I also like the sweet and sour pork and ham fried rice. The service has been hit or miss, but overall, this is a good bet if you're in the area. dviolet

4 out of 5 stars Must ask for veg menu. Fast service (10 minutes). Downside: they wouldn't do a lunch special for a vege entree. Tried the Shezuan beef..(spicy). Need to try more to rate better rooksmahn
