It's a major surprise to find food this good in the small town of Forestville. The food here compares favorably with the Chinese you'd get at Brandy Ho's in San Francisco or Yang Chow in Los Angeles. Those are rock-solid Chinese restaurants. Owner Bing ran a Chinese restaurant in Chicago for 20 years before Tahoe Chinese and he knows what... More

Hubby and I have eaten here quite frequently in the past: it was our go-to restaurant for a long time. The last several times we ate there, though, were disappointing: the service was awful, and the food seemed to be lower quality with decreasing taste satisfaction each time we went. Plus, although it never was a finely decorated restaurant, the... More

Once was enough! Don't even know if Tahoe still exists. All I can remember is ordering for a bunch of unexpected guests and no one said 'yumm'.

The food is OK but not great. The sweet and sour soup has a wonderful favor but has too much "stuff" (Tofu, bean sprouts, mushrooms, etc.) Non-spicy dishes are very bland. Atmosphere is nondescript, not very appealing. Takeout is a better option. Prices are high for what it is.

OK, there aren't many food offerings in Forestville, California, a small wine country town about one hour north of San Francisco. Surprisingly, you can have good Chinese food, though, if you stop in a Tahoe Chinese. They have really solid, tasty dishes. Some winners: Chow Fun, Eggplant with garlic and basil, and Mongolian Chicken. I've been told they have excellent... More

We have been going to Tahoe Chinese for over 20 years. They make the best Hot and Sour Soup! All their food is great - mock duck, garlic eggplant, yum!

This is the only Chinese place in town or nearby for miles. The food is okay. The owners are really friendly with the folks they like but less interested in new folks it seems. The food is average at best and the lunch specials are higher than many places but probably because they are small, local and somewhat rural.

I crave the soups, they have a great hot and sour soup. My husband goes here, whenever Im feeling a little cold coming on, and gets me this soup. We eat here often and love all the food. Wonderful family feel restaurant. Best Chinese food anywhere in the River area.

3 entrees and 2 orders of pot stickers, rice, and soup, for 70$. The entrees were small enough to fit all 3 portions on a normal plate when we got home. Tasted OK but felt like I got ripped off.

I am very grateful for the existence of this place. It is the closest chinese to my home, and acceptable and freshly prepared. They have been very willing to take my particular needs and desires into account and removing canned items and adding vegetable to a lot of dishes. They have been here quite some time. Everyone in a very... More
