Why did we dine here? – Bistro Na’s is the first Michelin Starred Chinese restaurant in the Los Angeles area. It is located in the San Gabriel Valley (SGV), about 20 minutes from Downtown LA. This spot is the first outpost of a chain with several locations in China. This is a beautiful restaurant, definitely worth dining at.

Be sure to read our Introduction to Chinese Dim Sum tutorial.

Insider Tip – Come with a large party

Cuisine – Imperial Chinese
Location – Temple City, Southern California
Opened – 2018

Service – Bistro Na’s placed us in a booth that had few people passing by. Servers were competent but not very present.
Verdict – Bistro Na’s serves up food worth a trip. Not many other restaurants have this type and level of cuisine. Lots of take out was going on.

Is this restaurant worth a 5 minute drive? Yes. 30 minute? Yes. 1 Hour? Maybe.

Bistro Na’s Signature Dishes – Crispy Shrimp, Na’s Drunken Chicken, Noodles

Bistro Na’s Menu is very wide ranging, so it is important to narrow it down. Careful selection saves a ton of $$. Several options for vegetarians. Allergens are marked on the menu.

Bistro Na’s Food Picks:

Bistro Na Temple City crispy shrimp

Crispy Shrimp ($16.95) had very fresh shrimp fried enough so that you could also eat the shells. Definitely could taste the quality.

Bistro Na Temple City okra

Okra in Seasoned Dressing ($9.95) was well done and beautiful with some tender okra not overwhelmed by the sauce.

Bistro Na Temple City Steamed chicken pork ribs

Na’s Steamed Chicken ($9.95) is a classic dish and serves its purpose. Other dishes are more exciting.

Bistro Na Temple City stir fried pea shoots

Stir Fried Pea Sprouts with Mushrooms ($11.95) was very fresh and not overcooked.

Bistro Na Temple City deep fried shrimp and cabbage

Dried Shrimp with cabbage ($10.95) had napa cabbage with small shrimp. Nicely done.

Fresh tofu skin salad ($13.95) is great for vegetarians. Ample quantity and cooked perfectly.

Bistro Na Temple City Beijing zhajian noodles

Beijing Zhajian Noodles is served by the portion. A portion for one was enough for several of us. You must manually assemble it, which is part of the fun.

Bistro Na Temple City sweet fried rice cake

Sweet Fried Rice Cake ($8.95) are okay, we had a better version at Sichuan Impression.

OK: (Order if you like this dish)
Smoke Pork Ribs ($11.95) were average.

Pans: (We would not reorder these dishes)
Old Beijing pancakes ($8.95) is a sweet pancake and just tasted weird.
