Extremely Delicious, Generous Servings, Warm Welcome.
My family and I moved to the Bay Area from the East Coast early last year for my husband's job; Tai Wu was one of the first places we ate at, because it was so close to where we stayed for the first month. We were in seventh heaven; we had no idea Chinese food could be so good.
Not only was it delicious, there was LOTS OF IT to take home, and the prices were great. All the dire warnings about this area's restaurants being obscenely expensive have proven false, starting here and moving on to other fabulous places in the area. We've been regular customers since March of 2011, and will continue to be.
They always make us feel welcome. For instance, on a recent visit my littlest son was struggling with his chopsticks, and one of the wait staff brought him some tofu to practice on, and gave him some great pointers. When we place a takeout order, they ask us to sit down while we wait, and they serve us tea on the house.
We *love* the warm welcome we get here, as well as the delicious food and fast service. If you want snobby ambience, go somewhere else; if you want to eat fast, and well enough to make you nearly cry, go here.
Delicious, affordable food.
This is one of my favorite local restaurants - delicious food, good customer service, quick turn-around time, and definitely reasonably priced. Good selection of rice porridge, too.
