Chinese Restaurant Recommendation for 60th Birthday Party

I'm looking for a recommendation for a great Chinese restaurant that we can host my dad's 60th birthday party at in December. We have guests coming in from Asia, so must be authentic and can do high quality banquet food. The party is for ~20-25 people and we'd like to stay relatively close to Sunnyvale.

    If you're stuck in Sunnyvale it's Hong Kong Saigon Harbor Seafood. If Cupertino isn't too far, you can go with Joy Luck Place. These are good seafood/banquet style restaurants that aren't the best in the Bay Area, but given your geographic needs they should be OK.

      Anything within a 25-30 min drive of Sunnyvale would work if you've got other suggestions. Thanks!

        Try Dynasty in Cupertino.

          To get a significant upgrade you'd probably have to go up to Millbrae, and that's not a sure bet to be in your driving range.

            I'd be open to a longer drive if it's a significant upgrade. Family is mostly coming in from Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Singapore, so if it's not amazing for Bay Area standards, it's going to be far from what they're used to. So if you have other recos, I'd greatly appreciate them. Thanks!

              Would second Koi Palace in Daly City, then.

        I wouldn't suggest Dynasty in Cupertino. I've had the banquet food there and it's not good. If you're willing to drive, I would recommend Koi Palace in Daly City. It's about 1/2 hour drive there but so much better than any of the large Chinese restaurants in the south bay.

        If you want to stay closer to Sunnyvale, you could try Fu Lam Mum in Mountain View. The decor is much nicer than Dynasty and it's not as noisy as Saigon.
