Reviews for Kirin Restaurant

Old school Berkeley Chinese favorite a little bit more expensive and usually a cut above, in recent years has become a little doll and flavorless. I ordered the Kung Pao chicken, and shrimp dumplings, both of which were flavorless, and the shrimp dumplings were a waste of time both times I ordered them. I hope they do better next time.

I was so disappointed in this Chinese Restaurant. We are veggies and tried the Mu Shu Veg. That was OK. But the Garlic Eggplant was inedible and the Veg Fried Rice was basically rice with peas. Also felt sick after MSG overload. Would not eat there again!

This is my favorite Chinese restaurant in the Bay Area and have been going here and their sister restaurant on College Ave since arriving here in the late '90s. The recipes are unique and flavorful, the portions are generous, and they have my favorite Mongolian Beef and Hot and Sour soup anywhere. What more could you want? The low reviews here are crazy-town. Support great restaurants!
