I ate for the first time at Spices III in Oakland's Chinatown. Looking very much like a hole-in-the-wall on the outside, it also looked like a hole-ini-the-wall on the inside. The restaurant was moderately filled for a Sunday night. Service was slow. The food uneven: my son ordered a garlic chicken dish, that both looked tasty and was tasty. I ordered a special -- crispy duck -- which came with nothing. It was bland, bony and unsatisfying. I was served half-a-duck, but the skin was not particularly crispy and the flavor undistinguished. I am not inclined to return, with so many other either untried or good Chinese restaurants in the East Bay.
