This place definitely is good Asian Cuisine, not the best I've had but in the top five. Every dish I've ever ordered was good I've never have anything I didn't like. Very friendly staff and most every time I've gone, there were plenty of tables. definitely reasonably priced.

Saw the reviews online. It was close to our hotel so we thought we'd give it a try. Really yummy food at a great price. If we lived in Martinez we'd be eating here all the time!

Review №11

First time eating here. Lunch menu offers twice what most Chinese restaurants I have visited. Food was excellent. Don't let the strip mall appearance fool you. Very nice inside.

Review №17

Another great Chinese food restaurant in Martinez. Food is well and nicely prepared. Take out orders run late due to numerous orders from locals.

Review №18

The staff is friendly, the food is consistently good, $10 gets me enough food to last a day or two, there's always parking, and it's right next to a supermarket. By far my favorite restaurant.

Review №19

Very hidden. I've lived around the corner for a year and didn't know it was there. Fast and effective service. Were attentive but didn't hover. Top notch Chinese food. The only place that comes close is Mings up in pleasant hill. I ordered the mushroom chicken and wife got sweet and sour pork. They brought extra plates for our 3 and 5 year olds to pick off our large portions. Also really reasonable pricing especially for the lunch menu. Whole family fed with 20% tip for $25. Will definitely be a regular customer.

Review №26

I really enjoy coming here. Great service and food. Lot of variety. Tastes better than a lot of places sroaro. Highly recommend

Review №27

The food was very tasty. They definitely lacked in service. The register was in the back of restaurant and no one at the door to greet and seat. They yell from the back hello and ask you to sit down whereverThe server seemed stressed and not very pleasant. We asked for a suggestion on a menu item but his response was what I like you might like and what you like I might not. And seemed annoyed by the question. I probably would not go back here because of the awkwardness and service but I might order take out as the food was tasty.

Review №28

The food is top knotch. The prices are great. Lunch for $10/ plate, dinner $10-$15/plate. The best deal in town. Broccoli cooked perfectly. The asparagus was cooked perfectly. Everything is seasoned to perfection. I just discovered this place a few weeks ago and my family and I have been back several times. Strongly recommend.

Review №29

Great food, friendly staff. Everything is cooked fresh.

Review №30

Excellent attention and food !

Review №31

Smooth Season has a large variety of choices and great selections for vegetarians. My two friends and I split five dishes, three of which were vegetarian. The vegetarian egg foo young, mixed vegetables deluxe, and Kung pow tofu. All were good, but none of them stood out. Service was great.

Review №32

The food here was very good....the service was great and it was priced just right...

Review №33

Lovely deco, good service, pretty presentat ion of food. Food was good.

Review №34

I went when it wasn't busy. The food was great. Had Tofu dish and Hot and Sour soup. Great portion for price. I recommend.

Review №35

Quite Yummy, Shrimp Fried rice was old School tasty, so yummy that their was no need for SoySauce , meaty spring rolls, fried shrimp look like breaded Frozen type, But taste So SO Fresh & meaty... I recommend,Z Was fortunate to have delivered by the Chef, No English, but the Apron & Hair Bonner were a dead giveaway...

Review №36

Food is good and service is okay. They need another server at lunch time so there isn't so much waiting.

Review №37

Not a fan. I had pork fried rice and bbq (Chicago style?) Pork. The food was not good and over priced but the staff was very friendly

Review №38

Great deal for tradisional manderin lunches

Review №39

It would be enjoyable if you were Asian, although, they speak English well enough. Take someone who speaks Mandarin.

Review №40

A little slow being seated, but not bad afterwards. Had the almond chicken, which was good.

Review №41

There's just something not right when within 10 minutes of having a meal you have to make an urgent run to the bathroom. If your planning to have a meal at Smooth Season, Don't wear White.

Review №42

This restaurant has wonderful service and the best fried rice ever! The shrimp in lobster sauce is also exceptional.

Review №43

First visit was 5/12/18. Basic decor, and menu. Husband was impressed with the quality of the menus construction, I'm not sure either of us read the whole thing. Seemed a touch overpriced. Had good Mongolian Beef and other dish was served in an unexpected manner. Salt & pepper shrimp was tasty; breaded and fried nicely, however, nearly all pieces had all of the shell intact, under the breading. When we pulled the legs off, most shell stayed on body if shrimp. A few had only the last section of shell on, near where the tail would be. I mistakenly assumed the rest of the shrimp had been deshelled and deveined. Bitting into unexpected shell was not pleasant. Having to remove the breaded, fried outer crush to remove shell wasn't fun. Removing bits of shell from my mouth was worse. Glad I wasn't on a business lunch date; that would have been too embarrassing.

Review №44

Babe favorite restaurant in Martinez!!!

Review №45

Do not get the mango chicken it is gross! I asked to get it changed because it was just nasty and they said no. I ended up eating the noodles only and they also forgot to bring the rice that I order. Waiter only checked up on us once and we were 1 out of 2 people at the restaurant.

Review №46

Food and service was very good.

Review №47

Review №49

Sesame Chicken: WIN!!! Incredibly pleasant and inviting staff coupled with culinary craftsmanship.

Review №50

Some of the best Chinese food in the Bay Area.

Review №51

Service was good but our food was not. Chicken fried rice with pineapple tasted day (or 2) old and the green bean dish quite greasy.

Review №52

Soup and tea were great. Chicken with cashews was too salty. Service was excellent.

Review №53

Went here for lunch: Great lunch portions at a decent price. The food was piping hot when it came out and delicious. They seemed a bit understaffed/slow when it came to table service however. Would definitely come again though!

Review №54

Best chow fun and Mongolian beef that we've had maybe ever.
