The best Chinese food I have ever had, Orange chicken with real oranges, not too sweet but flavored to perfection. rice is tender with its veggies, walnut shrimp to die for. only complaint is they don't deliver to my house. EVERYTHING WAS TOP NOTCH
Dined there ever since it was known as DAIMIO. Food was fantastic! Transition to Hoicin was good. However, in my recent visits, menu selection has become limited due to not having the proper ingridients. Service is getting indifferent. Like the service, the food is getting apathethic. Flavoring is getting more like mainstream caucasian-chinese (ugh!). Needs a big turnaround to regain its reputation as the best real Chinese restaurant in the Sacramento area. I guess I got to go back down to the Bay Area to eat and enjoy real Chinese food.
This place has some exceptional true Cantonese dishes. Take someone who's know's how to pick them out. Salt and Pepper pork chops, shrimp and calamari are great. XO lamb with snap peas...yum. If you have the $'s, get the Peking duck two ways with the steamed buns. The duck meat is stir fried with veggies / mushrooms and severed on noodels. The cispy duck skin served on a separate plate with steamed buns. Killer.
Dinner is a bit pricey for chinese food but the ambiance makes up for it.
I've also seen traditional amerchinese food served there. People say it's good. Always looks gross to me. (lots of sugar, colorings and thickners in sweet and sour this, lemon that)
Giving it only 4 stars becasue there are times when the beef and pork is rubbery. I think from too much tenderizing substance.
