Reviews for Kirin Restaurant

I have no idea why; other than the fact that my sister has absolutely no taste, but her and her best friend always rave about the food here, but from my three experiences dining here, I have never been impressed with the food and the service here is lousy as well. They live nearby in El Cerrito and apparently walked into this place one day, saw that the restaurant had an upscale. elegance, modern bar area and good ambience, and decided this would be their go-to Chinese full review
First time here, Berkeley restaurant week brought me in! Street parking outside, I got lucky and found a spot right out front. When we walked in, the first thing I noticed was the open kitchen and you can see the cooks making your meal! The inside is nice, I like the ambiance and decorations. The one thing I didn't like was having to pay $6 for tea. We ordered the Gen mai Cha tea and had 3 refills. They don't change the tea leaves, they just add more hot water to it. full review
The food at Kirin is very good and of high quality. The service is also very good at the bar / register area but can be lackluster when sitting at a table. It's not bad, it's just not as attentive as I'd like. The one problem I really have with Kirin is that the restaurant is very, very cold in the winter months. Even when fully dressed in my outerwear it's too cold for me to comfortably eat a meal in leisure in the restaurant. Therefore we often resort to take out, full review
