    next time you should try E&O Trading company. It has a wide menu of Asian food. It isn't your typical asian restaurant though. It is a very cool atmosphere. I had a birthday party there two years ago and every single person absolutely loved it!

      That's a spinoff of an SF restaurant that also has a branch in Larkspur.

      we ended p at Taiwan on Lincoln, for dinner on Friday night. Very, very good. Just the right flavor, nice portions, good presentation, very nice dining room and we were seated almost immediately. The ex-patriot NYer was pleasantly surprised! We have a favorite Chinese eatery in of course several in NY. There is nothing in Santa Rosa (we've tried) and Taiwan is a must to go back to.

        Nha Toi is great for Vietnamese. Gombei for homestyle Japanese.

          Zeni. Best Ethiopian food ever.

          Turmeric. Ditto for Indian food.

          Pastaria. Great reasonably priced pasta and enjoy a walk around downtown Los Gatos.
