Good food. Good variety to pick from. Make reservations if large party (6-10 people) all their house specials are good. Especially sweet and sour pork and house tofu and noodles with crab Also French beef

A surprisingly GOOD Chinese Restaurant IN PASADENA (I usually go to Chinatown)! The highlight of the meal was the FRIED PORK CHOPS. It was fried to perfection, nice and crispy on the outside but tender and moist on the inside. SO delicious, it had a really nice flavor. The duck was a close second and we'll give third place to...

Good food, very reasonably priced. The dining room is very modest, but the fish is fresh, and the service is typical of a family Chinese restaurant. Great place to pop in for a bite.

Oak Tree Inn is recommended to all families who enjoys Chinese food. Chef's special tender beef, Sweet and Pungent Shrimp or Shrimp with WLnut are my favorite dishes. Definitely all the dishes Oak Tree Inn serves are unique tasty, enjoyable and recommendable to anyone. I'm sure all would enjoy

I live in Pasadena, but if we want to enjoy Chinese cuisine the Oak Tree Inn is the place we come to. It is a bit of a drive and there are several Chinese food restaurants that are closer to home, but none compare to the Oak Tree. Come and enjoy.

We come to CA about once a year and eat here at least once a week. If you want to throw a lot of money at pretentious restaurants, California is your place. But every time we go here in the evenings there are six to eight large family parties having a great time. We love the lazy-susan tables: we each... More

The restaurant food is very good, every dish is fresh, service is good, need more decoration. Parking is adequate, when it is crowed, street parkings are available.

After a recommendation from a local foot massage salon, I treated myself to a late but great lunch for $12.85 total including a tip. Located in a strip mall near the chase bank, I easily found parking. When I walked in, I noticed that there were mainly Asians dining and liked the ambiance. All the tables are set up with... More
