    Why did we dine here? – Great China is a popular Chinese restaurant in Berkeley right near UC Berkeley. A friend recommended this restaurant to us and Great China has been rated highly in Zagat’s.

    Be sure to read our article How to order in authentic Chinese dinner

    Insider Tip – Reservations accepted for parties 6 and above.

    Cuisine – Chinese
    Location – Berkeley

    Service – Great China had drop and go service. We had to chase down people to get things done. Believe it or not, high end Chinese restaurants outside the US have better service.
    Verdict – Great China serves up Americanized Chinese food as well an extensive wine list to a busy audience of mostly Caucasians. If you’re looking for an introduction to Chinese cuisine, come here. If you are interested in authentic Chinese food try Hong Kong East Ocean in Emeryville or Asian Pearl in Richmond.

    Signature Dishes – Peking Duck, Double Skin

    Great China’s Menu features a wide variety of items many of which are Americanized.

    Picks:

    Great China Berkeley Double Skin

    Double Skin – Fresh mung bean flat noodles with carrots, cucumber, egg crepe, calamari, shrimp, sea cucumber, onions, mushroom and pork. Dressed with soy sauce vinaigrette and Chinese mustard. ($13.95 sm) was mixed table side and reminded us of a Burma Superstar Salad. Without the Chinese mustard sauce, this dish would have no flavor.

    Great China Berkeley Peking Duck

    Peking Roast Duck – Signature dish Served with 24 pancakes, plum sauce and scallions ($32.95) was okay, but not exceptional. A mound of pre-cut but dry duck meat along with some nice thin crepes. We recently had some peking duck at Beijing Restaurant in San Francisco that was far superior.

    Great China Berkeley Green Beans

    Chinese String Beans with pork ($8.95) was a solid dish with a ton of pork.

    Garlic Fried Rice ($6.95) was tasty but extremely greasy. Not very authentic.

    OK: (Order if you like this dish)
    Wok-braised Lamb ($12.95) came with ample quantities of fatty slightly gamey lamb intermixed with a salad. It tasted like a braised beef.

    Pans: (We would not reorder these dishes)
    None
