Upscale Chinese Between Palo Alto-San Carlos
Looking for an upscale chinese restaurant between San Carlos and Palo Alto with good food.
Given, the geography restrictions: I think the best bets for "upscale" Chinese might be in palo alto. There are two high-end Chinese restaurants downtown PA with decent food:
I like Peking Duck on El Camino near CA Ave better than either (duck & fresh seafood are both excellent), but it is not quite as fancy though still a white tablecloth place. I would avoid Mings which is probably the most expensive of the bunch, but the most boring foodwise.
haven't been there in years... but there's
Ming's of Palo Alto
1700 Embarcadero Rd, Palo Alto, CA 94303
In terms of decor, it goes from Taipan, Mandarin Gourmet, Ming's, Peking Duck, to Chef Chu's. Peking Duck is kinda small, but they have the best authentic Chinese dishes. Honestly, I think the other four restaurants aren't that great in authentic Chinese food, but if I have to pick, Taipan is the fanciest and also the most expensive.
If you want to move one City north than China Village on Ralston in Belmont has decent Cantonese.
Also Henry's on El Camino Real in San Carlos I have had good reports on but have not tried it myself.
