This restaurant offers up a nice sampling of what might best be characterized as Asian Fusion. Everything we tried was delicious, well-presented and moderately-priced. Outside dining is also offered for those seeking fresh air combined with good food.

Have been to this restaurant for lunch several times, and always find it a pleasure to eat there. Very diverse Asian food with a lovely presentation. The lunch menu is very reasonable. They have a nice covered patio, which makes the meal very pleasant.

A PFChange wanna be, but that's not saying much. Lunch for two with a glass of wine was $70. The wine was $10 a glass for rose that's $5 a bottle at Cost Plus. Food was nothing special.

Was in Palo Alto and doing some shopping and checked out Yucca de lac for some appetizers. We had the duck sliders and some drinks. Not bad. Love the ambience. They have outdoor seating too.

Loved eating on the patio but a little disappointed with the food. Had the chicken fried rice. The fried rice was good but the chicken was barely cooked enough.

We were three couples looking for something while we were out shopping. The flavor combinations were very good and the service excellent. The martinis were *large* which got us off to a good start. The garlic noodles and dumplings were tasty and never doughy, as...More
