Beijing Restaurant may be new to Dixon, but the owners are seasoned Chinese food entrepreneurs, who bring their family values with them to town.

After more than 30-years of commitment as owners of Peking Restaurant in Fairfield, owners Steve and Jennie Yueh, have opened a sister location in Dixon, to be operated by their son Mike.

"We have had many regular customers come to our Fairfield location [Woodcreek Plaza Shopping Center on Travis Blvd.] who have asked us to consider opening a restaurant in Dixon," explained Steve and Mike Yueh, "On a trip through town we decided to stop and look at this business location and thought it was perfect for us."

Beijing Restaurant opened at 1440 Ary Lane, between Subway and Odyssey Nails, on Nov. 19, and, although the location has seen a fair number of name and ownership changes over the years, the Yueh family says they are committed to providing quality food, for reasonable prices, with a high level of customer service.

"We are proud to offer high-quality New Zealand beef, along with white meat chicken options, and only fresh, made-to-order menus, not the steam buffet style," the owners said, "We make healthy Chinese food. We make our our sauces, and cook using low amounts of oil and salt, with lots of fresh vegetables."

The owners say they already have several regular loyal customers, and though open for business for only about six-weeks, Beijing Restaurant's Yelp reviews boast 5-out-of-5 stars, reviewed by nine connoisseurs so far. 

Maria from Dixon said, "Finally, we found a Chinese restaurant that we will be able to go to in Dixon.  We've been here for a while and we either go to Vacaville or Davis to have a taste of descent Chinese food.  We ordered house chow mein, slices of fish with black bean sauce, and vegetable de luxe.  All were good and freshly made, the black bean sauce was really tasty and the fried fish is just crispy.  Chow mein and vegetable deluxe were not oily and tasted deliciously.  I would recommend all.  Most especially, service was great...we will definitely come back.

And Kelli from Dixon saidMy husband and I ordered several things to sample. The won ton soup was incredibly delicious- a little different than other won ton soups I have had (there was spinach? seaweed? not sure... and mushrooms along with shrimp and won tons). Very tasty and would definitely get again. We ordered some egg rolls, which were crispy and fresh. A must have! We ordered the orange chicken and that was wonderful. Not overwhelmingly orange flavored and the meat was very tender. The snow pea broccoli beef was amazing! I often feel let down with ordering beef at a chinese place, as it tends to end up being very tough and chewy. This was the most tender and flavorful beef I've had in a really long time. It has a bit of a kick too, which is great! The pork chow mein was also very, very good. Not too oily, which is prefect for me.

I love eating Chinese food. I also enjoy making it. There are so many Chinese restaurants it is hard to choose one that is better than the rest. I still don't have an absolute favorite. Alena | http://www.rosebowlrestaurant.ca
