We moved from the South Bay 6 months ago and have been looking ever since for a good Chinese restaurant. Tonight we ate at Lily Kai and I think we have found it. My benchmark is a good War Won Ton Soup, and tonight we were not disappointed in their Wah Won Ton Soup....very fresh asparagus, mushrooms, large chunks of... More

Filthy menus...uncomfortable booth. Hole in the wall. Terrible food we couldn't even eat.It was packed for Chinese New Year. OMG! This was the worst Chinese food I've ever had and the menus were filthy. All of the menus at our table were sticking together! The booth we had in the back, left corner was so broken down that you could... More

Went here for lunch. The lunch crowd was in full swing. The pineapple chicken was so delicious. The noodles were plain but so so good. They offered flower and hot and sour soup but not my favorites so I passed. The egg roll was crunchy and hot so very fresh. The potstickers were nicely browned and flavorful. We will be... More

Loved their fried rice side. Rice isn't such a simple thing to do perfectly... this was flavorful and fluffy without being dry. Their lunch special is enough for 2 meals! What I absolutely loved, and realize now that I've been missing in Chinese food and similar, was the big, chunky pieces of healthy looking food! I feel that most restaurants... More

We were greeted promptly by the staff with a warm welcome to the restaurant. We had the sweet and sour chicken and the cashew chicken. Both dishes were great! The hot and sour soup also was great! The service was above average too. We have been there a few times when we have visited CA. We are never disappointed.

My family and I have fallen in love with Lily Kai and have eaten there three times lately. It's still excellent, but the last time we ordered Sizzling Rice Soup and it was not heated enough, the rice did not sizzle at all, and it was humdrum. The only not-good item we've found on the menu. Go for the Hot... More

Tied with the long-gone Eve's Hunan in the Rockridge area of Oakland, Petaluma's Lily Kai has the most delicious Chinese food. Everything tastes fresh, fresh, fresh. The hot and sour soup was divine. The deluxe vegetables were heavenly. My mother and brother loved the beef dish they ate. We tried it for Mother's Day and are going back tomorrow for... More

I've been going to this restaurant for about 7 years. There are great choices on the menu and daily specials. And you can modify your menu item for your taste. Lily Kai herself works both in the kitchen and is alway out is the dining room checking to see that everyone is happy. My favorite dish is the crispy noodles,... More
