Stumbled onto this place after getting a discounted coupon. Second visit here and have had great lunch and dinner. Large portions and good service.

Had not visited this restaurant for a number of years. Had stopped going to this restaurant because the quality of the food had consistently been going down. A business associate suggested meeting there for lunch. Unfortunately, the quality of the soup and main course were severely lacking. Could not finish the meal. It is unfortunate because I do not like... More

I think the food is about the average for a strip mall Chinese restaurant. What I would like to see improved is the communication during the ordering process. The servers are very nice...but, twice now, language barriers have resulted in order mishaps.

I've not been here for a long while thought I'd try it once again - they are not friendly at all prices are high and service horrible & way to rushed! Food wasn't good and I won't be going back ! Three chances and I'm done!

As stated in the title, dinner for three, but enough food for five! We've never had a bad meal from the Crownery either dining in or as takeout during the many years they've been in Hockessin. We consider this the best Chinese food in the greater Wilmington area! Large portions of quality food at reasonable prices make this an excellent... More

My wife really enjoyed her seafood dish and was impressed by the scallops and lobster. I was unfortunately the victim of a server with a limited command of English. I ordered Szechuan pork with vegetables(a spicy dish) and asked that it be very spicy and no sweet(they do add sugar to most dishes) unfortunately the server only retained sweet and... More

We ate here a few nights ago for the first time. The food is typical chinese, with large portions. The house wonton soup for two is a meal in itself (wonton, pork, chicken, shrimp). The only issue I have with this place is that it is pricey-the pupu platter for 2 is $20.

I love Chinese food but this was just gross. Salty. High MSG. Microwaved. I felt like Ces for days and my rings and watch did not fit. And guess what??? NO DRINK REFILLS. when is the last place you've visited that had a no refills policy. Place is disgusting. Keep looking. the mall has WAAAYYY better food.

For years, we have enjoyed coming to this restaurant in Lantana Square. Good food and good service. However, it seems like the service has slipped in the recent year or two. Still an ok place to go, but I don't think it is a 5-star or top restaurant, at least not like it once was.
