Been going here since I moved to Boston. Everything is always fresh & well made. Their Scorpion Bowl is the best drink to have with dinner. Great service. Love this place.

The food is always wonderful and staff is efficient and attentive. It is also nice to have the option of ordering sushi while you wait.

Is this authentic Chinese? I have no idea. Is it what most Americans expect when they go out for Chinese? Yes. Awesome beef/peapods, pupu platter, and my favorite, Chicken Chow Mein. The prices are extremely reasonable, the service is fast and the food is delicious. What else do you need? My favorite restaurant in North Reading by far!

China Cuisine is a restaurant with staying power . . . reflecting the attentive management and staff, good food, fair prices and a range of services. We tend to use the take-out options (esp. chicken chow mien, sweet & sour pork, crab Rangoon etc.) but it is all good. Give it a try and you won't be disappointed.

If you are looking for a gourmet meal, go elsewhere. If you are looking for tasty, crispy, good quality 'American' Chinese food and tropical drinks in a casual atmosphere, you have found the place. We have been back at least 20 times since moving to the area two years ago. Just went again on Friday evening. If you stay away... More

Frequent this restaurant for many years. The Chinese food is good but if you are lucky and Chef Joe is on, the Sushi is excellent. Friendly atmosphere, clean, and the cocktails are very good. Finally a good MaiTai. My favorite place for Chinese & Sushi. You won't be disappointed .

We went there after a baptism on a Sunday afternoon. The waitress was great. Too bad I didn't recall her name. They did not rush us out and let us spend time talking. I had the Kung Pau with the house fried rice. We had sushi, soups and salads for the vegetarians. Nice place to go at the lights on... More

This is a well know restaurant in the area. Good food and friendly service. Pretty average food food. I enjoy sushi, but had some pretty fatty salmon last time and stopped getting this from here. Stick with the apps and chicken dishes.
