“Unexpected joy to be found”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

had several recommendation and when we drove to area we felt certain we were in the wrong place and it was broken down area and trash on street and no sign to announce the place! We drove around because the GPS said we were at the right address and did find the place after a few minutes.

Pleaseant place to walk into, attentive staff and a great menu and exceptional flavors and choices. A little pricey, but worth it.

“Generally good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

We've eaten at China Chili many times over the past 20 years. The only time I've ordered something bad was when I ordered the pu pu platter. It was shockingly bad - worse than the food kiosk at the mall.

“Great Food but . . .”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

the chairs are quite old and sunk in the center and that piano needs to be retired. The service and the food are great but the chairs are so uncomfortable that you wish you got your food to go.

“Good Chinese food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

Consistent quality and service.
Clean and quiet surroundings, tastefully decorated dining room.
Only complaint is the tea pots, its time to get new ones and provide better quality teas.
Waiters have worked there for a long time so Management must treat the staff well, the service is good and efficient.
Good value

“Overrated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2010

This restaurant, once highly rated, is now only so-so. The menu items can be found in many restaurants around the Bay Area and the clientele is almost all non-Chinese--not a good sign in an area with a large Chinese population. The interior is also showing wear, virtually unchanged since it opened inthe 1980s.
