Because my wife and I moved over to a part of Oakland that's close to a 45-minute drive from Renee's many years ago, we only get back there rarely. I think the last time was at least five years ago. Anyway, we did swing by...More

Renee’s never disappoints. We go nowhere else for Chinese food in Berkeley. Pot stickers, hot and sour, spicy green beans, orange chicken, Mongolian beef are particularly delicious.

Renee's is the real deal. It's pretty, the food is not only tasty but good quality, often organic. They got rid of their loud phone ringing, which made it a great dining place as well as our go-to place for takeout.
