China Village, Belmont

Cheung Hing replaces China Village Seafood Restaurant in Belmont, California just off the Highway 101 Ralston Exit. The former have been around since 1996, serving dim sum during both lunch and dinner, as well as standard Cantonese Chinese cuisine but changed hands in 2022. It appears that they may have a similar menu and chef from before. The interior and exterior are still the same too, so is the phone number.

Cheung Hing has several locations in San Mateo, Millbrae, and San Francisco. Those concentrate more on Chinese barbecue dishes and don’t serve dim sum.

Dim sum costs more at dinner, presumably because it is freshly warmed up. We visited for a dim sum lunch and dinner. They use carts and servers to dish out their dim sum. Some stuff (hardcore Chinese dishes) keeps going round and round. They had 59 types of dim sum on their menu. Our last visit was in 2022.

Do not confuse this restaurant with the spicy China Village in Albany.

China Village Seafood Restaurant Belmont Interior

Decor, Vibe – Cheung Hing is a small step up from typical Chinese restaurant decor. Lots of families and couples of all ages were dining. A nice mix of races.

Cheung Hing Menu

The menu is pretty extensive for such a small restaurant. Lots of pictures, so DIM sum newbies should not be scared. The servers all speak English, so no worries for those that do not speak Chinese.  Dim Sum at dinner costs more.

Conclusion – This restaurant has really changed that much since changing hands. They come summer solid, classic dishes, not imaginative ones like that HL Peninsula. Prices have gone straight up unfortunately. There aren’t that many dim sum options in this mid Peninsula area from San Mateo through Palo Alto, making the spot fairly busy even mid week for lunch.
