The restaurant is probably a 'Bowling Green 4', but if compared against any good Chinese food restaurants, it's maybe average. I gave it less than average because: I got carry-out and they put the carryout dishes dumped into those compartment carryout containers that are designed for sandwiches/chips and a side. I drove a few country blocks away, got it into... More

Our first visit was a very good experience. The staff was attentive and friendly. The table service was neat and clean, even though the restaurant was having a busy Friday evening. The food and presentation was top-notch, and tasty, not bland as some "chinese" restaurants are. I just wish they could warm their plates, as the food got cold rather... More

We love Chinese, Japanese & Thai. We have eaten here frequently for years and have never experienced a lunch or dinner that wasn't top notch. The service is prompt and friendly. The atmosphere is comfortable, well-lit and cleanly decorated in an understated way. I did see a negative review above and advise you to ignore it. He's either really never... More

My husband and I have been eating at The China for over 20 years. Although they have changed locations their food has never changed. I ate lunch there today and OMG it was as good as always. It's not a buffet and it's not filled with tacky Chinese decorations - but it is however the BEST chinese food I have... More

After a few months of driving by the China, we finally stopped in. The booths and tables were in good condition and there was plenty of room inside. Our waiter was polite, friendly, and helpful We asked for recommendations and he had good suggestions for a variety of dishes. The food was above average and did not have the typical... More

I love Chinese & Thai in general but the China is way over the top in taste and overall quality. I usually order their Volcano Beef or Shrimp. It's supposed to be their hottest sauce but is deliciously painless with a wake-up-my-taste buds zing. Highly recommend for lunch!

This restaurant is a real gem that is tucked away from the busy downtown and college area. The restaurant is nicely decorated and you'll find it warm and inviting! Service is prompt and efficient! The menu is extensive, portions are generous and food is hot and fresh! You have a choice of white or brown rice. Parking is close and... More
