“Lovely location, good food”
Reviewed 25 January 2014

I usually don't much like Chinese food but I have to say I have never had a bad meal there. It seems to be a step above the usual and the flavors are subtle and not greasy. You can sit inside and there are plenty of sitting or outside in a lovely backyard, particularly in summer. The staff is friendly and the service is fast and efficient. Prices are reasonable and portion size quite nice, often two meals for me.

“Love their chinese food”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

DJ's (formerly CJ's) is a wonderful neighborhood spot with fabulous Chinese food. Green onion pancakes with peanut sauce (virtually impossible to find elsewhere), the dry sautéed green beans, and the honey walnut shrimp are all superb. Have also thoroughly enjoyed the empress chicken and beef with snow peas and water chestnuts. This is a must stop whenever we visit Marin County!

“Great little chinese place in Larkspur”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

Good, American Style chinese food. Nothing too far out or spicy, everything is prepared well with quality ingredients. Decent ambiance. Great for take-out.

“Good Chinese food in Marin”
Reviewed 31 March 2013

Excellent hot and sour soup and very good shrimp dishes. The owners are present and providing a welcoming atmosphere. I only wish we had anything close to this in Maine!
