This restaurant changed hands in January 2013 and is now serving Shanghainese Chinese Food.
Why did we dine here? – China Bistro is a new Chinese restaurant in downtown San Mateo. It is located where HK Causeway Bay was located. This location is no doubt jinxed as restaurants have come and gone here for decades.
The place was fairly empty, and had a familiar menu, so we decided to be brave and try this new spot. The chef and the owner have changed although some dishes taste similar to the previous restaurant. These folks also run Shanghai Bistro in Millbrae. Our last visit was in July, 2013.
Insider Tip – Order simply, less expensive items.
