Their lunch special was Dim sum we all choose to order from a menu so we order fried rice with shrimp, chicken with green beans flounder fish fried so the food was very tasty we'll go back again. lunch time was crowded but we're able to have a table right away. Not bad for being our second choice restaurant.

There may be fancier dim sum places with prices to match but we always go to Gourmet Delight first. Wonderful and authentic food, low price, simple setting, fast and kind service, just solid all around. They have all of your delicious dim sum favorites here, but they do a few things better than anyone, my favorite of which is the... More

Our last go-to dim sum restaurant in Oakland Chinatown was closed by the health department (perhaps not a surprise). Looking for a replacement, our family tried the dim sum lunch here, just two blocks from Renaissance Plaza Parking ($1/hr), and were fortunate to walk in early enough to be seated immediately. 45 minutes later, the restaurant was packed with elderly...

I was born and raised in Canton, and I had lived in NYC for several years. I love dim sum. The dim sum here is really good and authentic. The price is decent. I will definitely go there again next time I visit Oakland.

I can't speak for their food overall, but their dim sum hits all the right notes which to me comes down to good selection and execution. The pork dumplings, crepes, shrimp dumplings, pork buns, chow fun, etc. were all fantastic. Our family of five ate like it was going out of style given that we skipped breakfast for dim sum... More

I am married into Chinese culture, so I know "Authentic" from "American" style. Gourmet Delight is the real deal! I just happened to get off the right freeway exit and suddenly I was in China Town in Oakland. Many Chinese restaurants. I chose Gourmet Delight. I had Salt and Pepper Frog and Tofu and West Lake Soup! Both dishes were... More

Your palate will be tempted to our delight at this JAMpacked restaurant in Oaklands Chinatown. Let the waitress suggest dishes, make sure to try the sticky sweet rice, sesame balls, poi balls, Shrimp delicacies, broccoli and more. Go with a large group, sit at a round table and share Dishes. For a meager $11 including tip you will be TTT... More

It was a great success. We went with 2 other couples and ordered 6 dishes—all of them were very good and large. First the restaurant brought us a large bowl of (complimentary) broth made with root vegetables and meat. It had very good flavor. We ordered the fried oysters to start. There were three (heavily) battered and very large oysters.... More

In Chinatown lots of eating choices. We would go back. Light and bright environment with large fish tanks at the back of the dining room to see your future dinner. Cashew chicken was so so. Eggplant in clay pot ead a winner. Full of families so a nice environment
