Although A-1 Chinese BBQ doesn't look like much from the outside and the dining room is tiny without much ambiance, the food and service are fantastic! Our server Alberto was friendly and efficient.

I have driven past this restaurant for 25 years and never noticed it. With that being said, a good Chinese friend suggested we meet there for some soul food.

Very experienced front staff and excellent cook in the back, its one of the best Chinese restaurant in the whole South Bay area. They serve both Cantonese and Taiwanese food and both are made with high quality material. Price is always affordable.

OK, so you might drive right by this place if you don't know it's there, but this is the most delicious duck you'll ever have. Dinner had been hanging from a hook just hours before we arrived and if you peek into the kitchen you'll see for yourself. The food here was plentiful, delicious, pleasantly served and it was all...
