Best Chinese Restaurant in Moraga even though the prices seem to being a little high, would like to see them come down. Otherwise you cannot do much better anywhere else.

We had a variety of dishes including shrimp, moo shu pork and a couple chicken dishes with a side of fried rice. All of the dishes were fresh and delightful. The staff here is very helpful and friendly. Very nice setting.

Chef Chao is another one of our weekly stops. Food is very consistent, and is usually ready in 20 min. We have eaten here for almost 20 years and it is always good. Order whatever you want, it’s all good! Way to go!
