If you’ve had the staple SF spots like Dumpling Home or Dumpling Time, this restaurant is at the same level if not better. Their pan fried dumplings and XLB are to die for and I always order extra. Everything comes out piping hot and fresh. Prices are super reasonable and service is great. The restaurant can get pretty busy so make sure to budget time in case you need to wait but it’s worth it. This has definitely become one of my go-to dumpling spots in the Bay Area.”

Everything from soups to stir-fries, to sushi, to fresh crackable crab legs, it's all fresh and piping hot. The place is absolutely huge, so even when it's busy it doesn't feel that crowded.

Phone: (925) 676-5670

Website: Red Dragon

“This is by far the best Chinese food in the East Bay. I traveled from Oakland to have lunch with a friend and their crispy orange chicken was calling our names. We dined in the bar area, not the restaurant, and got to enjoy a conversation with locals and the owner-chef. We always over-order because it is all so good and reheats well the next day since we had lots of leftovers.”

Dublin


Koi Palace - Dublin

Phone: (925) 833-9090

“If you want really good Chinese food, but don't want to drive to the Bay Area, this is a great compromise. The food here is some of the best I've had all over the Bay Area, LA, and Vegas. Be prepared to wait, just about every time I get a chance to go here there is normally an hour wait. Especially during the weekend brunch. The only other option is Daly City for their other restaurant, then it's a 2-hour wait. Pick your poison.”


Golden Sand Harbor

I was a little intimidated by the menu but I bet I could’ve ordered anything and it would’ve been good. The sea bass (pictured) was so juicy and tender, I’ve never had such a delicious piece of fish. We spent about $118 on three appetizers and the sea bass - including a 25% tip because again, the service and atmosphere were incredible.”


Hong Kong Cafe

Location: 7200 Regional St, Dublin, CA 94568

Phone: (925) 361-0123

“This is a Sunday afternoon, we came to this restaurant after shopping nearby. The atmosphere is pretty full of different places' names in Hong Kong. The rainbow wall reminds me of the days back in Hong Kong while waiting at MTR stations. For the food, I ordered French toast and pork bun. Cold milk tea for sure matched the bun just like a classic afternoon tea set. Milk tea tasted original, not too good nor too bad. If the cellphone and TV signals were better in this restaurant, I will come and eat more often. Recommend this restaurant for Hong Kong food!”

“Authentic Hong Kong style and taste Dim Sum. The beauty of their food lies in the details. Their dim sum flavors are balanced and subtle compared to a lot of dim sum houses with strong flavors. This success when the skill of the chef is adequate so that the original flavors are put on the spotlight and the delicate skills of the chef in the elements can shine by itself, not the artificial flavors added.”

Then it was rolled up in what felt/looked like Bacos, but were actually red tempura flakes.) Price was right, and there are often promos available. (Tip: order via app, and try lots of the restaurant offerings here!) Tables out front, too, so you can tear into your food ASAP. Friendly staff (hi, 'Stache!), and lots of free, cold water (plus bottled drinks) to wash it all down."

"One of the top quality sushi places in the US. It serves Edomae sushi which is more traditional sushi than that served in the usual Japanese restaurants. Fish is seasonal and is chosen by chef Kenji. The seafood is very fresh. He seasons it to perfection to highlight the uniqueness of each sushi. There is no need for any additional soy sauce or wasabi. The typical 12-piece sushi is heavenly. If you have that with drink, you should budget about $110 per person (including tax and gratuity) for a sushi quality that is rare to find elsewhere.

It is a small family restaurant run by a Japanese couple. They have been serving top-notch sushi in Orinda for 15 years. There is no walk-in. Reservation by phone well in advance is a must. I had to book my place about 4 weeks ahead. If you come on a weekday, you still should book at least 2 weeks ahead. I can tell from their expression that they are serious about making world-class sushi and providing a dining experience that you can’t find elsewhere."

The Godzilla roll was packed tightly and fried to perfection, the garlic edamame was bonkers, the veggie tempura was crispy on the outside with a fresh crunch on the inside, and the gyoza had real vegetables inside. Definitely not what we were expecting from a place right next to a grocery store. I think we've found our new go-to sushi restaurant.

Vegetarian options: The veggie Tempura rolls is delicious!"

We also ordered double hamachi roll, seared salmon belly nigiri, saba, sweet shrimp and seared salmon nigiri were all perfect. The fried shrimp heads were particularly tasty so we ordered more from the kitchen afterward. Agedashi tofu and shrimp tempura were light and crispy. The yakitori was packed with skewed chicken and veggies in between. We will be back for more."

"Great sushi! The rolls tasted very fresh and each roll was well balanced. I got the Dynamite and sushi girl. The spicy tuna in the roll was just the right amount of spicy for me, I’m not a big fan of really spicy sushi. I also got their spicy garlic edamame, it was tasty but the spice/garlic is mainly from powered spices but still good.. again, not super spicy. I sat at the bar and the gentleman making the sushi was very nice and very engaging. The service overall was great. Definitely a spot worth trying!"

"Pho tasted delicious! Haven't had it in a while and this hit the right spot. Soup was steaming and the exact taste I was looking for. Meat was also surprisingly good quality. Service was great and food came out so quickly. Interior was what you would expect at a normal pho house. They also had real sriracha!"


Vanessa's Bistro 2 Vietnamese Restaurant

Location: 1512 Locust St, Walnut Creek, CA 94596, United States

Phone: (925) 891-4790

"Vanessa's Bistro honors the classics with subtle elevated twists. For example, the notion of tuna carpaccio sounded odd to me but it was absolutely one of the best preparations of tuna I've had in a while - bold and amazing. The poke was well balanced by the addition of diced sweet peaches against the classic umami of poke. I ordered an old-fashioned that was prepared with just a touch of coconut and banana liqueur, which sounds like a food crime, but was a beautiful tropical note to the strong whiskey flavor. Vibe was a relaxed chic feel. I recommend."


Kibi's Cafe Walnut Creek

Location: 1981 N Broadway STE 115, Walnut Creek, CA 94596, United States

Phone: (925) 320-1361

"One of a kind, small café offering Vietnamese cuisine. Dining area is outside the café. We tried the vegetarian rolls, Ban Mi chicken sandwich, and the noodle salad.

Very messy but so worth it. Don’t overthink it. Just trust me and go there and order at least one of them. It can be shared but you’ll probably want your own."

Location: 1687 Willow Pass Rd, Concord, CA 94520, United States

Phone: (925) 787-7508

"Delicious Asian food, great if you like rice and are craving for the optional spicy taste. The self-service free lemon water is good. The pork dish had the right crunch to it. The chili was good. The side vegetables balanced the taste. Our soup had tofu in it, it was mild until you add the chili oil or the chili seeds. Restroom was wide and clean down the hall. Staff was attentive and approachable for requests like take away plastic, extra bowl, or spoon and fork. Besides the mural, they decorated for the season too, it was a nice touch. Parking: Location has lots of free parking space, but lots of people come in the area too so we waited about 5 minutes driving around the space."


Pho Lee Hoa Phat 1

Location: 2030 Diamond Blvd H, Concord, CA 94520, United States

Phone: (925) 609-9594

"They are very attentive! The portion sizes come in small, medium, and large, which is thoughtful because I can't finish a medium or large portion! This would lead to wastage and inconvenience with packing! There weren't many staff members, so I had to wait a bit before seeing someone, but the staff were warm and friendly! The taste is also quite good! I would recommend it!"
