Tao San Jin, (TSJ), in Antioch serves authentic Chinese food. The food is well-prepared and the portions are large. The tables have tablecloths on them and the place is always spotless. I have been going there for about 14 years now and have never had a bad experience. I hope they read this because I would like to thank them... More

Mongolian Beef was far too little meat. Kung Pao Chicken was good but not stellar as in the past. The fried wontons were some of the best I've ever had

My visit was disappointing. I went to lunch with a friend and ordered the Golden Tofu with Vegetables. The tofu and vegetables were stir fried correctly, but it did not come with any sauce. The fried rice did not seem fried, and contained canned peas and carrots. It was not very good. Service was very rushed. People taking a lunch... More

Never disappoints! Start with crab puffs, indulge with spicy Kung Pao fried prawns, ice cold beer, and end with complementary icecream, cookie and chocolate mint! Ginny is a perfect host and insures a great experience!

Love the chicken corn soup and the lunch specials are very reasonably priced. They close mid-day from 3-4:30pm between lunch and dinner.

I grew up going here, and continue to go here as an adult. The food is very good but a bit pricey.. It's best to go for lunch. Between 6-13 dollars! Amazing shrimp.

I would rate this 4.5/5 stars if it was possible. This is literally the only place I actually like sweet and sour pork (I usually find it too chewy/tough.) Theirs is so lightly fried and crisp on the outside and soft on the inside... delicious! I really like their spicy eggplant but I just happen to love eggplant. You can... More

if you want to have a decent place to eat chinese food, I recommend this place. I love their food here especially the eggplant in spicy garlic sauce and kung pao chicken. The service is good and the staff are friendly and helpful.We visit this place often.

Great Chinese food. Not the cheap, greasy, hole in the wall that so many small, Chinese restaurants are. The atmosphere isn't the greatest and, East County patrons can be rude, crude and way too loud.

Chinese isn't my favorite, but I love this place. Their hot and sour soup is especially great, and so is their curry. Dishes are served family-style, and the atmosphere is relaxed and quiet.
