We have visited this restaurant many times for many years. I love their crab puffs. We like to order to go the chicken salad. Just enough for like lunch or dinner. The service is quick and pleasant. The prices are a little high for real frequent visits.

Look, this may not be the most authentic place ever, but they definitely know their client base. When I think of Chinese food, this is always my #1 pick. I've tried other places in the area and they just don't compare. They may be a bit more expensive, but I believe TSJ is very much worth it. I've always gotten... More

We have been going to TSJ for about 16 years, first in their now closed Antioch location and now in Oakley. The food is excellent. Their service is the best. They have quite a following in the local area. I personally have never gotten an item that I was not happy with.

This was our favorite Chinese restaurant when my husband and I lived in Oakley. The family who owns it is friendly and accommodating. I would leave a bottle of gluten-free soy sauce there and they would make my dishes specially for me. If I tried to order something they couldn't make gluten free, Lillian would always let me know.

We had 8 people for lunch today and we got eight different meals and had enough for everyone to eat til they were stuffed and had three containers left over to take home. We only paid $100 including the tip!

Great food! Only recommendation is to have booths rather than have tables too close together. The waiters are hard workers! The food (especially the crab puffs and sesame chicken) are terrific! Highly suggest it!

This is our favorite place to go for Asian food. I love the Singapore Noodles. My husband loves to order take-out. He loves the Kung Pao Chicken and Beef Chow Fun.

I ate here with a table of seven other friends. I have no complaints about the food or service and also no raves. I can't tell the difference between one Chinese restaurant and another as they all seem to have the same heavy food and sauces and the same menu - none of which we had anything like any of... More

Not as good as their old Antioch location was. They over crowd the tables so it's hard to get around without disturbing the other dinners. Bathrooms need a thorough cleaning around the edges and floors. Service is average to below average. Food is good but not great. I'm very disappointed that my favorite restaurant has fallen so low.
