Asian cuisine in Walnut Creek

Karen K Apr 19, 2007 07:27 AM

I'll be in Walnut Creek for a few days and am looking for Asian restaurants worth going to. Others have talked about Tin's Tea House, primarily for dim sum. Is it worth going there for dinner, and/or are there other decent places? Not interested in driving very far and am looking for places with some vegetarian options. Spicey is okay but am not into greasy.

    I'd say that Tin's Tea House is the most authentic Chinese food to be had in Walnut Creek, but I do think it's better for dim sum than for dinner. I like Zheng Long, which has a very nice atmosphere (Chinese antiques, full bar, some garden-type seating), and a high-end "California-Chinese" menu, which is definitely light tasting and not greasy.

      I agree on Zheng Long, but I would not rule out Tin's Tea House either. I have had excellent dinners at both.
