Description & Atmosphere
"Thanks again, Paul" for recommending this HOT new restaurant and lounge on
Santana Row. What a FUN
place to hang out!

Sino Restaurant, Santana Row, San Jose

From the minute you step inside this visually stunning restaurant, you know it's going to be a GREAT dining experience. If you like Tao (NY & Vegas), P.F. Chang's,
Betelnut and Straits Cafe, you're gonna love Sino.

Sino opens up to Santana Row, San Jose, CA

Sino is owned by renowned chef Chris Yeo, the restaurateur behind Straits (Singaporean cuisine).

Its combination of amazing food and service, creative presentation, al fresco dining, and sleek, elegant Asian decor, makes Sino stand out from the crowd — not only on Santana Row, but in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Dining at Sino Restaurant, Santana Row, San Jose, CA

Sino's classic Dim Sum is excellent. The Scallop Mushroom Dumpling (with Scallop, Carrot and Shrimp in a rice flour wrapper) is so fresh and light, it just melts in your mouth.

For something a little different,
we recommend the Curry Chicken Puff (flaky puff pastry filled with curry chicken — the flavors are sensational. Ditto the Siu Mai Steamed Pork Dumplings, the Stuffed Eggplant with Shrimp and Black Bean Sauce and the Stuffed Mushrooms with Shrimp.

Sino's Brown Rice (which is much lighter and tastier than most) complements the Spicy Garlic Chinese Eggplant — Yum!

Besides an extensive and creative Dim Sum menu, Sino also features delectable lunch and dinner entrees, including The Emperor's FavoritesChar Siu Smoked Sea Bass, Garlic Roasted Dungeness Crab or Lobster, Porter House Steak, Braised Lamb Shank...and more.
