Albany Chinese: China Village vs. Kirin

Midlife | Jul 3, 200504:13 PM

As LA visitors to relatives in Albany, we've twice been treated to take-out from Kirin and found it extremely good. We've asked them about China Village and been told the food isn't as fresh,is more oily and not nearly as good as Kirin. We've also been told China Village is never busy.

So................ how does this square with this board's recommendation of China Village as one of the better Chinese restos in the Bay Area?? We wanted to try it ourselves, this weekend, but will have to wait for the next visit. How do those of you who have experienced both compare the two?
