recommended chinese in Oakland?
All the Chinese on Piedmont or College is Americanized to greater or lesser extent (not that it can't be tasty). If you want a celebratory atmosphere, why not go into Chinatown? Shanghai is my favorite restaurant there -- if you don't know much about Shanghainese cuisine, you might want to look at some of the threads about it, as they have a very bad case of multiple menu-itis.
