Moraga: Chef Chao Restaurant; restaurant review

Greater East Bay

Chef Chao Restaurant  343 Rheem Blvd., in Lamorinda, (925) 376-1740. L M-Sat, D daily.

No MSG is used in the Szechwan and Mandarin cuisine here. The bargain lunch special includes appetizer, soup, rice, and a fortune cookie. Among the popular dishes on the extensive menu are hot and sour soup, potstickers, lemon chicken, spicy eggplant, and honey walnut prawns. A variety of chow meins and chow funs are available, and family-style dinners are an option. The spacious dining room is filled with natural light by the wall of windows, and in the evening dangling electric icycles add romance. Comfortable seating includes many booths.

More things to do in Moraga.

More ideas for exploring Northern California.
