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.

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!

Couldn't have been happier with tonight's family dinner. Great vegetarian options with real flavor and taste. Portions were more than reasonable. Everyone (ages 4-68) was pleased. Perhaps most important in these times, everything was taken care of safely. Pick up was super easy, and social distancing was obviously of utmost concern to the restaurant. Glad to support a local business right now, especially when they make it so easy.
