My wife and I recently had lunch at Great China in Berkeley. We went for two of the specials we had read and heard about -- Two Skins and the Peking Duck. Both were very tasty and we did indeed enjoy them quite a bit....More

Roomy, busy, modern Chinese with extensive menu, good beer selection, and good service. Looong wait, but many seem to think it worthwhile. We were starving and the waitress was kind enough to serve our large party some dumplings at the bar, while we waited. Pork...More

We were a group of 6, so we could get a reservation. Started with "Two Skins": Mung bean noodles, pork, and a variety of vegetables. Absolutely outstanding! The other standout was the Peking Duck. Crispy, non fatty skin, delicious pancakes and sauce.

Great Asian fusion style dishes. Really delicious and well presented. This is a big restaurant but was close to full on an average mid week night, which says something;) good service too.

Ended up here with ,y cousin and my bestie. Even at just 7pm this place was crowded and there was waiting. Hence we chose to sit on the counter table as we were famished. The food was tasty, service was good and price was reasonable....More

Great moo shu pork - very thin pancakes, lots of veggies and mushrooms. Dumpling dough was a bit thick to my taste. Fun decor and ambiance. Friendly staff.

I don't understand all the hype about this place as I have found the dishes to be over-priced and the food to be of so-so quality. We had the wonton soup which they served with broccoli (Chinese don't use broccoli in soups...) and the walnut...More

I am very picky about Chinese, enjoying the restaurant I enjoyed growing up. This restaurant was a pleasant surprise. Great food. Not too salty, which is a common gripe. I especially loved the mu shu vegetable.

The food is okay, not amazing but family food, if you can't eat too salty, please tell the waiter before. Spicy and sour soup, garlic rice more outstanding than their double skin and belly pork, is a northern Chinese food but not original taste anymore....More
