My most recent visit was terrible. I made an order for pick up. The food was plenty hot, however the taste was horrible! The food tasted as if it had been cooked in old grease or had been warmed up. I won't go again.

China Inn is always our first choice for Chinese in Cedar Rapids! Every single time it's hot, fast, and delicious with lots of choices on the menu! Not to mention, reasonably priced! Both their 1st Ave. and 16th Ave. locations consistently provide the same amazing service and food! They also deliver. The owners recognize me whether I call in an... More

Food was cold and got diarhea after eating. It did not appear that the quantity of food was good in proportion for the price. The inside of restaurant was not visibly clean and was uncomfrtable to dine in.

We had the lunch special today, that is, one of about 30 choices. I had the sweet and sour chicken, my friend had Mongolian beef. Both dishes were tasty, and very affordable,....drink and meal for $5.50. We added crab rangoons, they were miniatures, not the full fledged rangoon to which I was accustomed. But not bad. Service was quick and... More

I found China Inn by accident several years ago and I'm so glad I did. Their food isn't bland like most american Chinese places. If you want spicy Chinese/szechuan food then this is the place to go. They have the best hot & sour soup, their egg rolls are great, and all the dishes I've had were excellent. My favorites... More

We moved to town 8 years ago and tried all the recommended places. Not until visiting China Inn were we happy with the choices. Even though we live in the far north part of town, this is the only place we will go for Chinese. The hot and sour soup has a great kick and the meats are always nice... More

The food is so greasy. Their fried rice should be called "petrified rice." Seriously, I feared cracking my teeth it is so hard...consistently! We just gave up on them.
