clients5ZiLin (“Purple Tree” in Chinese) is a new Chinese Restaurant in the heart of Old Town Pasadena.  The Chinese owner is an artist and professional who has traveled the world but fell in love with California.  She is building her home here, and thus created the restaurant to be a hub for the local professional, entrepreneurial and art community.  With that in mind, she has created an atmosphere that is unique and elegant in design, with passionate purple walls, accented with white furnishings and hand-made lighting and decor.  Art works from local artists are featured on the wall . The menu is innovative, featuring a gourmet blend of familiarity and exotic flavors from the Far East, taking you on journeys to places around the world.  ZiLin is a perfect venue for business lunch meetings, anniversary or date nights, and get-together with friends.  

From the owner :

We are serving Asian fusion food when we first open our doors to the old town Pasadena area. but we always feel like we should bring the traditional chinese/taiwanese Cuisine which is really missing in this area and also thats the food that we really love to eat everyday.so we finally decided that we have to remove some of the popular items on the menu, and focus on what we really want to bring to you. sorry for those people that like our burgers, oxtail chili fries and etc. we are bring more delicious food to this community. please keep supporting us .
