Specific Cantonese/Chinese/Malaysian Request near Milpitas/San Jose Border

Candice | Dec 18, 201311:06 AM     10

I'm looking for a place to take my 90 year old Chinese grandmother to early dinner on the 24th. She lives near 680 and Hostetter so I'm looking for something close by, near Barbar Lane, Hostetter, etc.

We like Cooking Papa in Foster City when we eat on the Peninsula or Saigon Seafood Harbor in Richmond.

We used to go to Mayflower, ABC, etc back in the day but it seems like they've faded some. Any recommendations for other Cantonese or Chinese places? We are trying to stay away from Sichuan and Hunan b/c our last few meals have been Sichuan.

We need a place that can accommodate a walker and isn't freezing inside, otherwise it doesn't need to be fancy. We also need to be able to order some soft dishes (braised tofu, fish, etc).

I'm considering some of the Malaysian places around there too. She's not into Thai or Korean and already eats a lot of pho so we are trying to stick with Cantonese or Malaysian but I'm open to suggestions.

Thanks so much for any recommendations.
