My 91 year old mother swears by this place. She absolutely loves the food, so when I'm over in Berkeley, I always get takeout from this restaurant. We get the pot stickers , the Sichuan dry fried prawns, the Chinese braised tofu, and the Spicy...More

We visited this restaurant based on previous reviews. When we came in the place was almost empty, and we became somewhat apprehensive. But it filled up quickly, and the service and the food were very good. We really enjoyed a tasty and authentic Chinese meal!

I love this place! It's not your usual Chinese restaurant as they have unusual dishes. Their braised green beans are out of this world. Another delicious dish is their minced chicken in lettuce wrap. You really can't go wrong here with anything you order. It's...More

I enjoyed my meal at Kirin, though the food was a bit more expensive than I'm used to for Chinese food. Service was good. My sister (who lives in Boston) loves going to Kirin whenever she's in town and I'm sure she'd rate it, "Excellent".

Friendly service, nothing too much trouble. Superb authentic food - at a great price. 4 of us, old friends, all were extremely hungry and managed to really over-order but we all left very happy and satisfied. Would go again to try the other half of...More

This is located in a great neighborhood on Solano. A very clean restaurant with excellent staff and food that is made for the Gods. Have the Kirin Beef, the garlic noodles and the dumplings. With the addition of a full bar, the experience is unbeatable....More

Solano Avenue in Berkeley is well known for its endless row of better-than-average restaurants and Kirin is among the best of them. Years in NYC and SF have made me very picky about Chinese restaurants and Kirin tops my list SF Bay Area list for...More
