I would have given 0 starts if I could. Moved to the bay area last week and took my parents to Great China for lunch today. Ordered the seafood winter melon soup, ginger scallion fish and seafood chow mein. Both of my parents suffered from food poisoning (diarrhea) within 15 minutes of eating here. I would never come back here... More

Crowded place, very good food and good service, what to expect more? We went with a party of 3 and found a table at 8PM without having to wait which was great. Service was fast and waitress friendly and helped in the choice and recommendation.

This is the best Chinese restaurant in East Bay. Their founder was originally from Shandong Province, then went to Korea, Taiwan and came to US. So the food is mostly famous for the dishes from Northern China. We always order the roasted duck, double skin salad, crab meat dish, garlic pea leaves and a soup. All their signature dishes. The...

Twice Cooked Pork, was heavily... More

We were a group of 6 so we managed to get a reservation... it was my first time eating Peking Duck, I found it OK but nothing special. We all enjoyed the other dishes, the hot and sour soup, Bok Choy, and General's Chicken. The place is a bit noisy so not recommended for an intimate dinner but a good... More

We love the food here and go as often as we can. Favorite dishes include sizzling Rice Soup, Peking Duck, Ant climbed the tree and Kung Pao Chicken. My husband loves their tea smoked duck. Try and get their duck bone soup!!!!! So many dishes so little time!

After having this with my best friend once, I am absolutely hooked. I have yet to find a place that can hold up against it. They are fast, and clean. To be fair whenever I go I pretty much only order the same thing. Their Hot & Sour soup, and Pork Fried rice. Of course I have tried other items... More
