According to the East 180 website, Siu’s restaurant prides itself on offering a “pan-Chinese experience grounded in and dedicated to showcasing the best in Chinese regional cuisine – not Chinese as it has been stereotyped, but how it is constantly evolving.”

He is currently a member of the UCR business school’s Dean Advisory Council.

Dean Wang said, “It was a great honor to visit Mr. Siu at East 180, where we were treated to fine dining. His entrepreneurship is commendable, and I am excited about ways in which we can continue to collaborate in the future.”
