When it comes to (semi) authentic Chinese food in the southside Berkeley area, there isn’t much of a selection. You have your super greasy dishes at Sun Hong Kong, mediocre dim sum at Chang Luong, plus various other Chinese restaurants with ridiculous names down on Shattuck.
And then you have Lotus House.
Located just a smidgen from the famed Asian Ghetto, this restaurant serves pretty decent Chinese food. Try their Yang Chow fried rice, chow mein, or better yet, their Mongolian beef.
A little on the salty side, but quick service, plus a delicious boba milk tea to wash everything down. Lotus House is definitely the best Chinese food you’ll encounter south side of campus. Recommended.
