Success! Thanks for posting your review of Great China Restaurant. You’ve done the world some good today.

Overpriced food, ridiculous policies for groups

I met up with four of my friends there. We were seated promptly, but that was merely because it was around 5:30, which is just before it started getting really crowded. The place is quite small enough as it is, and I felt pretty sorry for some of the hapless customers squished near the door watching us eat. If you do end up going to this place (and I don't think you should), go early at least.\r \r Food was unremar... view more

Best Chinese Chicken Salad Anywhere

This is a great Chinese restaurant! Get there early to avoid a wait. People are willing to wait because the food is so good. Yes it is a small place, but the service is usually fast once you are seated. There is now free parking after 7:oo at the carwash across the street. Try the wok charred Lamb in addition to the best Chinese chiken salad anywhere. Many other fine dishes such as pea leaves with garlic. Try ... view more

Rude wait staff. Tiny rat-hole dinning space.

Bad, bad service. Wait staff very ill-manner and can't speak good English. The boss is very ill-manner too. That must be the policy of the restaurant.\r \r Tiny, tiny rat-hole dinning space. The food is nothing great. Not worth your time and money. Eat elsewhere!!!!

Overrated, bland, barely palatable.

We went here expecting great things after reading the reviews, and were horribly disappointed. The food was lukewarm, tasteless and barely palatable. In fact it made us queasy and left us wondering about the quality of the ingredients (especially the beef in the beef and broccoli, which was this weird gelatinous, flavorless texture). We would not recmmend - in fact we would advise people to go elsewhere if they ar... view more

Excellent But Be Prepared

The food here is the BEST!!! The ""Double Skin"" is completely authentic and rare. The Peking duck is an absolute must! Every dish I've had is A+. But BE PREPARED to wait up to an hour or more for your table and BE PREPARED for a busy staff.... Some dishes take longer to prepare, but others arrive pleasantly fast! Waiting for your table works up an appetite... And hope you don't get a table by the door, but upstairs... view more

Tasty Food!!

This is a great Chinese restaurant that offers rare dishes. THe duck is excellent; highly recommended. May not have the ambiance or service of pricey PF Changs, but the food is authentic and delicious. Overall pleasant experience with service and food. Make sure to make a reservation or arrive early, or you will face a huge line!

A favorite!

The food at Great China always impresses. The ambiance isn't first date material, but it's always enjoyable and filled with people. The staff has never been anything but helpful and kind to me and I regularly recommend it to Berkeley locals.

Best chinese food I've ever had

The service and ambiance are only average here, but the food more than makes up for it. This is always on my list of places to hit when I'm in the Bay Area. Try the Honey Walnut Prawns!!!
