“Perfect place to go before or after the theater.”
Reviewed January 8, 2012

My husband and I enjoy going here before or after a performance at the local theater. We have never been disappointed with either the food or the service. The chef presents old favorites with a new twist making them special.

“Best in Walnut Creek”
Reviewed December 22, 2011

This is the BEST Chineese place to eat in Contra Costa County. Great owners great you at the door and the staff is outstanding. The best Chineese food for miles.

“Awesome FOOD & SERVICE!!!”
Reviewed July 25, 2011

My entire family love this place!!! The Hot & Sour Soup is always perfectly balanced and flavorful. The Braised Oyster Sauce Duck is KILLER!!! OC Bowl has a really nice atmosphere, especially compared to most Chinese restaurants.The lighting is classy, and the servingware is unique and fun. They DO NOT take shortcuts here!!! MUST TRY!!!

“The Best Chinese Food West Of The Hudson”
Reviewed February 8, 2008

There. I've said it.

OI C Bowl is the best Chinese restaurant west of the Hudson River. I've been eating Chinese food for 50 years and I've never been to a place where every dish I've sampled from their menu has been excellent.

The pot stickers are not too doughy with a tasty filling. The thick hot dipping sauce coats the dumplings to add a proper zing.

Everything from the soups to the noodle and rice dishes to the seafood, beef, chicken, and vegetarian dishes have been consistantly excellent.

I just wish parking was better.
