OK this is not the best Chinese food I've ever had but definitely they take great care in making a quality product. Each one of us tried a different item and the serving sizes were huge! Highly recommended.

Always busy and good value. Right on the food court side entrance to Grand Central Market. Loved the Chow Mein for $4.75. A good quick meal option.

Good service. Sitting at the counter...The counter is cool. Great ranchero music playing at the China Cafe! To go: Always busy but the line moves fast. Pork wonton soup and also pork chow mein...Both are way tasty!
