Reviews for Malazui Tasty Bowl

This review is for their regular dining experience before shelter-in-place.The food here is pricier than other Chinese restaurants in the area but they offer a customizable dry hot pot which no one else does. Dry hot pot is a huge thing in NYC and I'm really excited to see people bring it to Berkeley too. The variety isn't as great as what I'm used to in NY but I'll give them a pass since they're the first ones in Berkeley. It's also a lot more expensive (priced per pound) full review
i saw that they're open during the stay in place order, so i decided go get the diy ma la wok. this might be due to the stay in place order and slow business, but im disappointed that the level of freshness for the meat really went down. they look really old and browned, and you can really tell they arent fresh once you get a taste. the veggies however look and taste as fresh as usual, and spice level is perfect.i will still come back because there arent any restaurants like full review
When you walk in you either choose to eat from the menu or get ma la and I went with the ma la. I really like the spicy flavor of the stir fry and I can see why people come here so often because it's so addicting! The next day I found myself wanting to go again. I got medium spicy and it was a good amount of hot considering that I can take the heat of buldak. The bowl of steamed rice was very large and really good as well considering that it's just rice. The price is on the full review
