We ate here for 17 years under the previous owners who sold their restaurant and retired. I had my favorite dish pecan shrimp. The soup was not good and the shrimp dish, after years of enjoying it, was nothing special. The difference in the flavor and quality of the food was so pronounced we won't be returning.

Our family favorite Chinese! Served by the friendly owners...they take special interest in each and every person. Relaxed atmosphere, quiet, easy to visit at table, which our family appreciates. Tasty food preparation. Reasonable cost. Our family favorite Chinese for many years!

Let me preface this by saying that I had high hopes for this restaurant. It is convenient to our daily lives so having a good chinese place nearby would have been great. That being said, I'm not sure this place fits the bill. To start our visit we entered and were greeting fairly quickly. We asked for a table for... More

I got a coupon with my Verizon Rewards and got a Buy one Get one free deal. It was a nice restaurant. Staff good. My husband got Almond chicken but it had a few too many vegetables for his liking. I had sweet and sour chicken and liked it a lot. Prices were good despite the coupon we used :)

Very disappointing. I went for lunch and ordered the ginger shrimp which was listed as spicy. The sauce reminded me of ketchup with very little spice or heat. The fried rice was was no more than white rice with some soy on it - I saw nothing in it like eggs or veggies. I requested saracha and was brought a... More

We have enjoyed this restaurant for over a decade, and see the same faces serving us year after year. It is a true family business. They have a large menu including sizzling noodle soup. The tasteful decorations and curtains help infuse the whole experience with calm and pleasantness. There are booths for couples and large tables for families. The food... More

When I think of Chinese food, China Rainbow is the only place I think about going to. The food is just as good as PF Changs and much more reasonable. You are always greeted with warm smiles and a hello. I highly recommend this place!

Given many other places to eat in the area, I'm always drawn here. The people are always friendly and the food is always prompt and delicious. Like I said, it's always a favorite of mine!
