Quick delivery and this is my favorite Chinese restaurant in the collinsville area . You can order online and they will handle it as quickly as a phone call. I always get the General tso chicken and my daughter always gets the sweet and sour . When you order as a combo you get a very large portion, about two... More

We just love this place. Normally, don't eat in, but they do deliver and delivery is usually fairly fast, the food will still be hot. Crab Rangoon are the best around. Shrimp in lobster sauce is awesome. Hubby's favorite is the General Tso Chicken. Get a combo dinner and you definitely got your money's worth.

Rather pedestrian food. Busy restaurant but fast service. Good crab rangoon. Rather dirty bathroom and dining floor. Sometimes the General Tsoas chicken is tough and overcooked so it's a crap shoot.

They never get my order wrong and the food is always hot. the delivery man (usually a man) is super nice and friendly. They even deliver to my work!! prices are ok for the amount of food you get. The fried pork egg rolls and... More

Solidly good food. We've been ordering from China Lin for a couple of years and never have been disappointed. Best delivery service in the area. Always fast and friendly. Hot portions are always delivered hot. If dining in, expect more of a fast food atmosphere.

One of my favorite Chinese dishes & the worst Black Pepper Chicken I have ever eaten. It was swimming in BBQ sauce. I don't like BBQ sauce. I, also, don't like "wet" Chinese food; the "sauce" is important for flavor, but I don't want my food taking a swim in it. My friend had Garlic Chicken & she said her... More

We ordered takeout to be delivered and it was at the house in less than 20 minutes. Arrived hot and order was totally correct. Very reasonable prices. I had sesame chicken whose flavor was very good, but the pieces of chicken were cut very small so they were a bit too crunchy. Pork fried rice was very good. General Tso... More

A great place for take out only. Not the best place for dine in. The fried dumplings are the best in the world. The rest of the food is very good. The friendliness of the service is so/ so. I order from this establishment appox 10 time per month. I like it.

Yes, we had a little bit of bad weather today but nothing that bad. I had people over and for the first time asked for delivery. It took so long that I called and eventually pulled out frozen pizzas to feed the group. At 8 pm when food showed up, one guest tried the crab rangoon. It was cold. The... More

Very good Chinese food. They speak Chinese a lot, but I don't mind because as long as the food is good and cheap I'm happy. Also I don't think they act rude on purpose it is just there custom.
