Reviews for China Village

I grew up eating home-cooked Cantonese and Hong Kong food, and Chinese food from some amazing places in Manchester and London China Towns in the UK. The Bay Area has some brilliant Chinese food, but this is probably my favourite. We had our wedding reception meal here back in 2017, and Chef John Yao gave us exactly what we wanted (even when I asked for some really specific dishes). Service is extremely efficient, and honestly the prices are worth it for what you get. The full review
What happened to China Village!?!? This has been our go-to neighborhood Chinese restaurant for DECADES! Something just changed: our favorite dish has always been the 1,000 chilis fish soup, with a rich, velvety broth and melt I. Your mouth fish fillets. The version this evening went from a 10+ to about a 3. Everything had less taste, even the housemade pickled cabbage, which is now mostly a vinegar taste, lacking the complex sesame-rich umami taste we've come to love. full review

This used to be our favorite Chinese restaurant. A big unusual menu, great food, sumptuous potions. It was a few dollar more, but alway worth the price. But our last 2 meals here have been total disasters. Horrible food, greasy, and tasteless, and small portions. What happened?
