Description: Phone +1 650 322-1188. I would personally write a review for this one. It's both very good and very expensive.

We had been told by two people that the food here was fantastic. That was not our opinion. Some of what we ordered was good: crab/avocado spring rolls, duck platter. Contrary to what I read from others, however, we did not especially like the garlic noodles. (much prefer the garlic noodles at Rangoon Ruby, for example...) The restaurant was not crowded when we were there (6:30-8:30PM) which doesn't sound like good news. I would not go here again as there are too many better restaurants in the area.

Ate lunch and ordered dim sum for appetizer. Fried tofu springrolls were awesome. Chili sauce a must for dippin. Crab and fried rice plus grilled lemongrass pork. Will surely be back and try other on the menu.

Offers a great variety of food! I had the wonton soup which was delicious. The Chinese Chicken Salad looked excellent and the lunch specials were all appealing. Overall a very good experience.

We were looking for an early lunch spot while shopping and as hungry as we were nothing clicked with us in the entire shopping centre until we came across Yucca de Lac. We loved the outdoor seating on comfy couches with soft pillows. We were tucked away from the shoppers and cars and instead surrounded by mini palm fronds with a nice cool breeze. We had the Crab & Avocado Fried Rice Entree ($19) & the Rib Eye Chow Fun ($12 as a lunch special). I didn't finish the crab because it tasted canned - the only drawback to the meal. Everything else was delicious, as was the presentation and speedy service.

Following an afternoon of shopping, we stopped by for a sampler of appetizers. We had the scallion flatbread, chive dumplings, fried tofu and rainbow poke - delicious! Presentation/service was awesome!
