Greeetings all,

Do you suggest (in Millbrae) The Kitchen or Fook Yuen for supper club (dinner) banquet. We plan to pair the meal with Riesling.
Thank you for your input.

    My sense is that Fook Yuen's time has passed and would recommend The Kitchen as representative of what's current in Chinese eating trends.

      I agree, but I have better luck ordering off there menu as well as there low end dinner rather than the higher end set dinner for ten.

      Live seafood is costly and for me not that big of a deal. Like the comfort food off the menu.

        I had a banquet dinner at The Kitchen last year as part of a rehearsal dinner. It was definitely one of the best Cantonese banquet dinners you can get in the Bay Area.

        Now I wonder how good Zen's banquet dinners are...

          I too have been wonding about Zen Pen for a wait. Someone in the family will be inviting me to a wedding (next year booked that far in advance, told me to hold that date open) so I will have to wait to see. Maybe someone else will be reported back before then.

            We had a very large (multiple tables of 10) banquet dinner for a red egg & ginger party at Zen in Nov 05.

            Was very pleased with the food, though I don't remember much about it. But word of warning, if anyone gets a dish that includes abalone with greens in the banquet plan, make sure whoever is responsible for the tab, to do a count of the # of pieces on the plate before people dig in, they shortchanged my folks by charging full price and one plate at a table had less # of pieces than others.
            And this please file this under Chinese seafood restaurant ethics and politics, there's quite a bit of that going on at your favorite places too.
