about_us_pic2Gau Poang Chinese Restaurant has been serving Peninsula customers for over 30 years.  The restaurant started out on Burlingame Ave. for 26 years and moved to San Mateo in 2006.  Owners Jerry and Judy Kuo wanted to provide their customers with high quality Mandarin and Schezuan cuisine, along with excellent service in a family friendly environment.  Gau Poang means “good friend” in Chinese.  Many of our friends frequent and call us by our first names, where others would call them “owners and customers”. Jerry and Judy had a goal in mind, their customers to know them by first name and be able to call Gau Poang home. 

We have been serving generations of customer (good friends) on the Peninsula for years, and are happy to see kids who grew up eating Gau Poang come back bringing their own children. We provide dine in, take out, catering, and delivery.  We can accommodate large parties and events as well.  We use fresh and quality ingredients with impeccable flavor.
