Small restaurant and small menu but the food was good. The staff is very nice. Conveniently located in the center of the hotel. Also has a small bar, however, I didn't have a chance to check it out. I would eat here again.

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.
