This place is super authentic taiwanese cuisine. I literally felt like I was back in Taiwan. Go on the weekends where they have specials chinese tapa-like breakfast/brunch. I highly recommend it!

Great place to eat! Family oriented and good service. Their taiwanese food is the best. Spicy beef noodle soup and stinky tofu is recommended!

Good foods at good prices. Cantonese and Taiwanese dishes with some Hakka flavors. Order from the English menu, and you get all good Chinese-American dishes. We tried broccoli and rock cod in black bean sauce and they are terrific. If you read Chinese, you have more choices from the Chinese menu, and items listed on walls. There are a lot of selections. When I get a chance to try more. I will post it here.

Although the name sounds a bit dubious this place serves anything authentic, China Bee is actually quite good and does the job in dishing out savory, tasty Taiwanese dishes. Try the "stink tofu" which is really putrid but goes great with the chili infused sauce. The "tan tan" noodles are nicely done, with a peanut sauce base. Other things to go for: Shanghai noodles, the sour/hot noodles, the shredded chicken noodles and the salty plum drinks. For even more authentic fares, go for breakfast on the weekends when they serve soybean milk w/ green onion cakes. Yum yum. For those familiar with the disappointed "Taiwanese Restaurant" in Berkeley and on Clement St., drop them (and quick), then run down the Pen to San Mateo for true Taiwan dishes.

This is a great Chinese restaurant! The food was very good, with a very distinctive flavor. Each of the entrees are in the $4.00 range, but the servings are small so you end up ordering about two entrees per person. So your meal isn't cheap, though it's not outrageous for the food you're getting. The entrees themsleves are varied, very good and tasteful. The place is smallish, the decor bland, but the service is one of the most friendliest I've encountered in any restaurant. I'd like to go there again.

China Bee is the place to go in San Mateo for down-home Taiwanese cooking.
