Went here while on vacation visiting our grandson. Very family friendly. Hot & Sour soup yummy (wish they had put in some mushrooms), Green bean dish very tasty; beef and broccoli just right. Pork dumplings were good also. Service was good for the most part.

Because my wife and I moved over to a part of Oakland that's close to a 45-minute drive from Renee's many years ago, we only get back there rarely. I think the last time was at least five years ago. Anyway, we did swing by...More

Renee’s never disappoints. We go nowhere else for Chinese food in Berkeley. Pot stickers, hot and sour, spicy green beans, orange chicken, Mongolian beef are particularly delicious.

Renee's is the real deal. It's pretty, the food is not only tasty but good quality, often organic. They got rid of their loud phone ringing, which made it a great dining place as well as our go-to place for takeout.

Wondered why there were so few people in the restaurant. After dining, we know. There must be better close by.

My husband and I used to eat at Renee's when he was a student at UC Berkeley until 2002. Back then, I loved the Orange Chicken entrée and Sizzling Rice Soup. Since then, I always try Orange Chicken at other Chinese restaurants and it never...More
