Description & Atmosphere
"Thanks again, Paul" for recommending
this HOT new restaurant and lounge on
Row. What a FUN
to hang out!
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
gonna love Sino.
Sino is owned by renowned chef Chris Yeo, the restaurateur
behind Straits (Singaporean cuisine).
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.
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.
something a little different,
we recommend the Curry Chicken
puff pastry filled with curry chicken — the
flavors are sensational. Ditto the Siu
Pork Dumplings, the Stuffed Eggplant with Shrimp and Black
Bean Sauce and
Mushrooms with Shrimp.
Sino's Brown Rice (which is much lighter and
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
Favorites — Char Siu Smoked Sea Bass, Garlic
Roasted Dungeness Crab or Lobster, Porter
House Steak, Braised
Lamb Shank...and more.
After your meal, we recommend
you walk around Santana Row
and enjoy its European-style promenade, featuring swanky
shops and designer boutiques,
fine restaurants and outdoor
live entertainment, and landscaped parks and plazas.
