This place is in one of the nice areas of Berkeley. The lunch deal is a steal and they give big portions and are friendly. When you order prawns, they give a generous amount and are fresh. Once I felt ill after eating the hot and sour soup, but I got it again anyway and it was good. Supposedly no MSG which is a bonus.

Lilly's is a great neighborhood eatery. Cheap chinese eats (around $4.00 for lunch specials). The produce is very fresh, as noted by the other reviewer, and the food is served in large portions. Lunch specials include a bowl of hot and sour soup (terrific esp. when you're feeling under the weather), and fried wonton skins w/ sweet and sour sauce. Ying, the owner, is friendly and will happily accomodate special requests. The potstickers are particularly good -- big thick dumplings, crispy on one side, steamy on the other -- full of flavorful stuffing. My favorite dishes are pork with assorted mushrooms and chicken or pork w/ gai lan (a special request, not on the menu). Brown rice is available upon request. Mid-day there are hot trays with to-go items ready to box up; fried rice, noodles, sweet/sour pork, etc. There's nothing fancy about Lilly's, but it's reliably good food, served fast and fresh. A bonus for me is that you can get brown rice instead of white upon request.

Pros: Fresh food served fast, brusk but efficient service

Cons: Can be hard to park. The tables always feel sticky, and the seats/tables are uncomfortable
