Old style Cantonese food on the Peninsula ?

Larry Ching | Apr 8, 200106:00 PM

Hello SFBay Area Chowhounds,

I need a few recommendations for pre-80's style
Cantonese restaurants on the Peninsula within 20 miles
of San Carlos that will either deliver or allow pickup
of a multi-course dinner.

The occasion is my father's 79th birthday. He was born
& raised in Honolulu, but is now retired on the
Mainland, but not in the bay area, so he doesn't know
the restaurants here. Well, not any since 1960, when
he worked in San Mateo for about a year and went up to
SF regulary for Chinese food. After that year, he moved
back to Hawaii.

He is visiting us for his birthday, and we want to
have the food delivered to our home because one member
of the family can't travel. Since Dad doesn't know the
restaurants, it's my job to pick one before he comes

Trouble is, while I've lived in the bay area for over
20 years, I been uninterested in eating out, and I'm
also extremely easygoing on food - a comfy read-my-
paperback atmosphere means more to me, I'm afraid.

My dad is completely opposite. He almost always finds
something to criticize about a restaurant's fare.

I know he'd really love to have some old school
Cantonese cuisine - no little chili pepper icons on
the menu, thank you very much!

So, can anyone recommend any restaurants that fit
the requirements between Cupertino and San Bruno ?
