Restaurant Via Uno (italian) is now in the previous Gin Wan location. Via Uno has completely renovated the building, and now a great restaurant in this location.

Poor service, often rude, mediocre food with way too much sugar and salt....and MSG! We told the waitress I can't have MSG [gives me bad headaches] and she said they didn't use it, but guess what was lurking in my meal? Guess it was my fault for inconveniencing them for having a food allergy.....

Went to Gin Wan on recommendation of a friend and we really liked it. Very fresh ingredients and the place was very clean. Lots of variety and great taste. We are definitely going to go there again. We had Chicken Chow Fun & Cashew Chicken & combo appetizer platter.

Nice atmosphere - mediocre at best food. If you are stuck on the Coast and are disparate for a Chinese Food Fix, well, give in and go here. But, there is wonderful Chinese food over the hill (on the other side of 280) and in San Francisco -- so eat first, then come over to visit the Coast.
