CS Projects

Asian Population vs  Asian Restaurant Style

Does your favorite Chinese restaurant in town offer you General Tso's Chicken or Sichuan Boiled Fish?

In this project, our team combined Yelp ratings and demographic data from US Census to see how Asian restaurants adapt the demographic change in US.
