The food had no flavor they charged $4.00 for a cup of rice? Had no idea it was an additional charge. The lady ringing us up was rude and continued to roll her eyes as we tried telling her this was our first visit to the restaurant. Where's the customer service ? I will definitely never come back to this... More

I have written many trip advisor reviews, and I don't remember EVER giving a place a "Terrible" rating. But, here goes: Came in for dinner this evening, after having read the mixed reviews on Trip Advisor. Ordered General Chow's Chicken and a version of Happy Family. The chicken was tasteless; the sauce was sick sweet. The dish which was supposed... More

We stopped by with friends today for lunch. The buffet was filled with freshly cooked items. The presentation was very appealing to the eye!

It was a bit crowded in regards to space. Server was alright but not very helpful. Good value for the amount of food. I had the sweet and sour shrimp and they were on the bigger side which was nice. The soup was good and the rice had good flavor. I do not know if I would go back but... More

I come here frequently for the lunch dishes. They give you big portions for a low price and the service is pretty good. Sometimes you get great food, sometimes it's below average. It just depends. Overall this us the only Chinese restaurant I go to in harlingen.

We eat here often. They have decent lunch specials and generous portions. Their vegetables are washed thoroughly and the service is good. Bathroom has hot water, the toilets are clean, and there is a diaper changing station in the Ladies room.

I just moved to Harlingen and have eaten here twice. China Restaurant is Amazing! Great prices, large portions, large shrimp, they definitely do not cut corners in this regard. I do know a thing or two about Chinese food because I bartended at a PF Chang's for two years. The lo mein is delicious and so is the kung pao.... More

The food was terrible. My husband and I travel a lot and finally decided to settle down here in the valley. We wanted to try the Chinese food down here and it seems as if nobody has ever tried real Chinese food. The food was very bland and the only seasoning you could taste was salt. I had the Mongolian...

The atmosphere and service were good. The food was done well. We had their version of General Tso's chicken that was pleasantly spicy but not too hot. Their spring rolls and egg rolls were crispy and tasty. My husband had schezuan pork that he pronounced quite good.
