Cozy Wok is family-owned, family-run Chinese restaurant in the heart of Oakland
Cozy Wok is a father & son operation.
Papa Zhao is a chef with more than 35 years of experience. He has headed up numerous restaurants in China, Singapore, and the US. Growing up, some of my favorite memories were watching him prep in a busy kitchen.
I know it's hard to tell, but I'm the one on the right. I've eaten Chinese food for more than 30 years so you can trust me when I tell you that we make some great dishes here at Cozy Wok! Occasionally, I am trusted to cook.
Vegetarian Chinese food has thousands of years of history, originally crafted by Buddhist monks in the late Han dynasty.
Today, we believe that a plant-based diet is better for our health and better for the environment. We are on a mission to prove that vegan and vegetarian Chinese food is diverse, full-flavored, and undoubtedly authentic.
Chinese food is ever-evolving so we are always experimenting with new ingredients and techniques. If you have any requests or suggestions, text us at (510) 488 3585.
