Best Chinese Food in Town

The ambience leaves a bit to be desire, pretty basic, but the food is fresh & always good. If they don't have what you're looking for on the menu, they will make it for you.

This is a great place to go. Ask for recommendations and they will recommend things that will complement what you have ordered. Food is always fresh and yummy

I'm so glad we found this place! I was about to give up on Chinese restaurants all together. And because of this place I have changed my mind. Simon is amazing! I wish everyone on the restaurant business would learn from him! Food: everything we tried was super fresh and yummy! Simon also helped us to combine dishes for better... More

Used to love it here....but. I think they got too big for their abilities AND there are just too many dishes on the menu. They will accomodate dietary issues and discuss items (a plus) BUT the food is just well AVERAGE. Broccoli beef had NO flavor but broccoli was fresh and still crispy. Hot and sour soup....mucussy is the best... More

This restaurant was recommended by a colleague -- not sure we would have visited otherwise. The exterior is non-pretentious and next to a pizza chain. The interior is also very casual but welcoming. We return to Silver Spoon on a regular basis for both the food and the quality of the service. The staff remembers us by name and is... More

I moved to Castro Valley approximately ten years ago and my friend and I checked out most of the restaurants and found Silver Spoon to be very good. The owner is Simon, he greets and seats you. He or someone else will take your order with a smile and kind words. They are a very friendly establishment and cater to... More

I've dined here several times. I've found the food to be of excellent quality. Prepared tastefully by experienced cooks. The menu is extensive with something for everyone. Shark fin soup is excluded, since it has been internationally banned. Prices are reasonable. Patrons may use their credit cards or pay with cash.
