The food is outstanding because it is so very well seasoned. They serve large portions of food and the service is great.

Not only is the food delicious but the service is top quality..the servers are attentive and cater to whatever it may be you need..smiles are abound! So next... More

Stopped in for carryout. The woman at the hostess desk was super friendly, and she recommended the Shrimp and Lobster Pot Stickers when I asked about appetizers. They were delicious! I ate the order of 4 myself, and they were very filling. I also ordered the Combination Seafood Bird's Nest, and I really enjoyed that, too. The portion was large,... More

We eat lunch at China Bistro regularly, and have always enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. They have a good variety of choices on their menu, including Dim Sum and daily Chef Specials. They have a Monday-Friday lunch combo menu, but recently discontinued the lunch combos on the weekends. We think that their pot stickers are some of the best... More

A group of friends had lunch there on a Saturday and the service was very good. All entrees served were tasty and enjoyed. Would recommend for groups of up to about 20.

Great traditional chinese fusion. We come here at least once a month. Great service and food! The staff are always up to par following up on each table consistently. Also great for parties and private events. Grub time!

This is one of the best Chinese restaurants in the area. The staff is very friendly. The cocktails are pretty good as well. Good place for large groups or small parties. Very accommodating.

I like to go early for happy hour ($4 cosmo - hello!) with a friend and sit at the fully stocked bar (which truthfully is quite small but works fine for us). Robert is super quick, makes good drinks and has worked there a long time so he knows everything on the menu and is happy to answer questions. They... More

Good food and service, hard to find entrance from retail parking lot behind street address, nice local melting pot crowd.

The soups are great. I like the Sizzling Rice best. The green beans are excellent and my grandkids all of us like the combination chow mien. Usually a chicken item like chicken and snow peas or chicken and asparagus and a beef mix with sweet and sour pork with an order of rice is more than enough for 6 of... More
