  • "My wife and I got seating facing out to the view of San Francisco which was great. The service was so prompt and polite. My Nigori sake first came without being shaken up (which I didn't even notice) and when another staff person noticed she was apologetic and got me another one. They would always come and make sure everything was fine. They even gave us a complimetary chicken salad which was delicious. The food was great."

  • "We have been to Lily Kai a number of times and the food is consistently good. We were a table of six and we ordered a variety of dishes to share and all were good. The vegetables were really fresh and still crisp and with good color. The wine list is not long, but very reasonably priced by the glass and even better by the bottle. Our waitress, Helen, was very helpful and patient while we selected dishes and had some suggestions as well. Overall, the experience was most enjoyable and we will definitely be back."

  • "It must be the cheapest place to eat in downtown Tiburon and you get validated parking. Usually it is quiet but Friday was "50 years of Tiburon". "

  • "I've eaten at all of them. Lily Kai is, hands down the best. Fresh ingredients, masterful prep, extensive menu (and they take special requests), generous portions, a bay view of the city, and very nice people. Mother and son often there, and it's shows. Go and explore the best Chinese good Marin offers - and a challenger to the best in San Francisco. "

  • "We dined at Lily Kai on Valentine's Day and came away very satisfied. The restaurant was almost filled to capacity and yet the noise level was modest. We dined on all of our favorite dishes and thought they were all well prepared, served hot and attractively presented. Our server Mary was friendly and knowledgeable. Is this a place where someone looking for authentic Chinese food and experience would find satisfaction? I don't know since I am not that person. Does is satisfy my need for American-style Chinese food? Absolutely."

  • "I made reservations for a group of 12 at Lily Kai without really knowing much about the restaurant other than what I read online. When we arrived we were promptly seated in a semi-private area and treated with exceptional skill and grace by our server Helen. The food was very good (at least by the standards of someone who enjoys but doesn't claim expertise in Chinese cuisine) and the evening's event was as enjoyable as I could have hoped for. Getting a decent meal in downtown Tiburon seems to be a perpetual challenge, and Lily Kai offers a very handsome space and great food just a short walk from the over-hyped Sam's and Guaymas eateries."

  • "This place is wonderful! I have eaten here many times and always loved it. My picky husband, WHO WILL NOT EAT CHINESE FOOD, loves their Black Bean Salmon and never turns down coming here. The decor is gorgeous, the view is gorgeous, the staff are sweet and kind and lovely, the food is DELICIOUS, you can get a little room to yourself if you have a nice sized group and the prices are reasonable."

  • "The shrimp fried rice is excellent. Any prawn dish is superb. Appetizers are just barely acceptable. Chicken broccoli is great as well as all vegetables. Service is great."
