Kirin has staying power: they've been in this same spot on Castro Street for over 5 decades! Yes, they have fare that caters to most American's impressions of what Chinese food is supposed to be (most items on a typical menu are often modified from what you would actually find in China or Taiwan). However, they are very well prepared and if you're fortunate to dine with someone who speaks Mandarin, they can negotiate with the wait staff and get you more authentic (and more tasty!) items. Downtown Mountain View has evolved dramatically throughout the years and Kirin has been a mainstay throughout all of it.
