I've been going to this restaurant for years. I've never had a bad dish and the food is always delicious and fresh. It's always busy at lunch time. They have delicious dim sum. I order their noodle dishes, rice porridge, and other dishes, including assorted dim sum. The atmosphere is not great and the bathrooms could be a lot cleaner.... More

Went to Oriental Team House with a good friend. He picked it out and we met at the restaurant for lunch on a weekday. I live pretty close by in the next city over, but never had the opportunity to hear or eat at the place until recently. I will definitely go back. My friend that took me there knows... More

Went to dinner last night and ordered the set menu for $38 and it came with soup and four dishes. Soup was tasty and the four dishes were large, well prepared, and tasty. Service was attentive and we had to take home what we couldn't eat. The only complaint was that the Toilet needed a deep cleaning.

I don't think there's a better Asian restaurant in The Bay Area than "Oriental Tea House." I can't say enough good things about it.

If you happen to be in San Leandro and wished for a plate of Ha Gao, steamed ribs and cha siu bao, then Oriental Tea House is the only dim sum place to go. This place is packed with locals who decided not to drive to Oakland for dim sum. There is plenty of parking spaces and the food is... More

We met a family friend here for lunch and you can order for a checklist which makes things easier. Each of us ordered at least 2 items. All were tasty but after a few hours, I felt heavy headed. Not sure if it was the food or the heat as Monday was a hot and humid day. We had chicken... More

We have dinned here many times over the years as a couple and with groups of friends and family. We have always found the quality of the food and service to make up for the dated dcor. Along with the reasonable prices this is a good option for Chinese food. If you are bothered by the dated appearance and carpet... More

We have been to the Oriental Tea House for dim sum and dinner, and both were excellent. Favorites for dim sum are the shrimp dumplings, pork dumplings, sticky rice wrapped in lotus leaves, and baked BBQ pork buns. Dinner favorites are the candied walnut shrimp, beef with soft tofu, steamed fish, and beef soup. Service was fine - efficient.

Was craving Chow Fun so my cousin introduced me toThe Oriental Tea House and I was well pleased - I ordered the House Special Chow Fun with shrimp, scallops, chicken, beef and bok choy in a very nice gravy - I also was advised to try the pork ribs with a spicy salt which were deeeelicious - I shall return
