Green Willow Kitchen

Green Willow Kitchen Coming soon to Akron! Featuring "Rou Jai Mo," or Chinese burgers, dumplings, and a few American favorites. Fresh, authentic, and homemade on site.


Hello. Unfortunately, after several years of trying, we have decided to cut our losses and we must close down our attempt to bring you authentic Chinese food. There are several reasons behind this difficult decision. First, was personnel changes within the county building standards department. After initial approval, with conditions, there was a leadership change at county, along with the original architect pulling his plans in mid project, which delayed us immensely. The new plans were no longer grandfathered, and we worked for many months to come to a mutual satisfaction. Added to this was the fact that I was still working full time, had three surgeries, a heart attack, and a death in the family within the past year. The stress got to us, and we decided it was best not to throw more money at this--even though I feel we were pretty close to making it happen. A heartfelt thanks goes out to all who have checked in, and those who somehow found my cell number and called. We still have hope to possibly acquire a food truck or trailer in the future to bring Biliu's dumplings to local fairs and towns though. So, I will keep this page open for that possibility. Thanks again, and God bless.


Hello everyone! I want to thank everyone who is following us, and have asked about our progress, it is time for an update. Of course, we thought we would be open a year ago, but converting an old house, while working full time and coordinating contractors took a very long time. We did have some great contractors, and I will give them kudos soon. However, there have been issues... Summit County Building Department had a change in leadership recently, and when I thought we were almost ready for a final inspection, my hood installer discovered that they had lost our drawings, applications, and permit. Plus, the landlord’s original architect retired and pulled his drawings without answering Summit County’s final questions. In the last month, we have found a new architect and have new drawings drawn up to be submitted. We are working with the county to hammer out the issues, but there are now new regulations in place since the original drawings. I hope there is not anything major remaining. Thanks everyone for checking in, and even calling, I hope we will be open by the time school begins. If anyone is of the praying type, we can use those as well as we continue this endeavor to bring some authentic, unique Chinese food to Akron.
