Where is the new location?

Su Hongs moved from the W. Meadow location to the old Denny's on El Camino. It seems like a much smaller restaurant now.

When I went there, it was busy and fun. Nice energy, and the kitchen is turning out great food. I always liked the old place, but the new atmosphere is a great improvement. Long live Su Hongs.

P.S. The same great fast to-go service is available.

Do they serve authentic regional Chinese food or only Americanized food?

We went last night to celebrate Chinese New Year and this place was packed. We had to wait for about 30 minutes before sitting down. The food was good and you can get authentic Chinese food if you know how to order it.

I don't know if it is "authentic" or not - I just like it. Nice to see them in new digs, even if I have to drive a little further.

The "new" Su Hong's is terrific. The food marvelous. Prices good. Service impeccable and fast. Lots of Asian families ordering wondering things we want to try so we ask them what they ordered so we can order it next time. I loved curry prawns, beef and asparagus, lemon chicken, and Chinese chicken salad (although not as good as original long-gone Ming's) which needs a little 'kick', We want to try some of the new dishes on the menu - designated as 'new'. Only criticism - tables too close together and it can be noisy. Try not to sit near the tables for 6-10 people in the back on the 'south' side unless you too are with a bigger party. Make reservations!! !! and also go for lunch.

Very disappointed! The service was horrible. Waiter was rude and did not apologize for spilling sauce all over my top. Even the manager didn't bother to apologize. The food was okay- very americanized. Not authentic at all!! will not go again!

I hate Americanized Chinese food. The flavors are too simplistic and too sweet compared to real Chinese food.

Does Su Hong have a secret authentic Chinese food menu (like many Chinese restaurants do)?

Great improvement. Much cosier and still much better than Chef Chu's has become in recent years.

I do agree that you should avoid sitting near the big tables. It's very noisy and children are allowed to run around and make a mess and disturb other diners. Definitely not cool. If you can't control your kids, leave them at home. The noise is the only reason I think twice about going back there.

I grew up in MP - I remember the ORIGINAL SU hong - 4 tables (plastic white/red)on ElCamino Real Menlo Park - thought it was the greatest - they have expanded a lot and the food is good, BUT I found 35 years ago TEN FU - so much better, cheaper (atmosphere lacking) and not as greasy.

TEN FUN more bang for the buck and it is always empty - mostly take out - Su Hong made a special office just fore take ou

James,

You are Italian and I am Chinese. So you bash Buca di Beppo. Allow me to bash Su Hong. The Su Hong Take Out in Menlo Park is horrible. The Su Hong in Palo Alto is better but too oily. JingJing is worse. Chef Chu's is okay, but still Americanized and caters to Caucasians. We got the evil eye when we went there.
