China Doll Restaurant has been around for years. We used to eat there every time we went to town. We haven't went for several years but recently decided to stop in. I do not believe the anything has changed since 1980. The furniture is outdated and the facility is very uninviting. That being said, the waitress was very friendly and... More

Since the last time a few years ago the restaurant has improved in cleanliness and food quality. Staying like this or even improving we will stop by again. The food did not have msg and was lightly seasoned. Perfect for us.

Never had a bad meal here, order the #5, for 2 and still have a lot left to take home. Fresh made and delicious. Wide variety of menu options.

I've eaten here for over four decades, never a bad meal, never anything but attentive polite servers, and hands down the best chow mein I've had. In the years that I still drank I often frequented the bar at The China Doll and always found their drinks to be a great value and being able to enjoy a bowl of... More

I have been going there for years--it's my sons favorite place. One day I ordered a lunch combo, which came with soup. When my garlic chicken arrived it had a dead housefly in it. I never even had one bite. I flagged the waitress down and she offered to replace it but I had lost my appetite. When the bill... More

Hit this place on Sunday after a play. Have been going here for over 30 years. Have tapered off over the past 10 years. Thai food took over my taste drive. For the update . The place has aged. Booths are showing wear and covers are wearing out. Place was painted recently. Black and red. Service was good. Prices were... More

The food here is just ok. Nothing exceptional, but the atmosphere is top notch for the most stereotypical old Chinese restaurant style. I love the dragon on the wall. All in all its not bad, the staff is excellent.

We went to China Doll on New Years Eve on advise of a friend. We should have walked out as soon as we walked in but thought we would give it a try anyway. The carpet was filthy, the bench to sit and wait on needed repair currently patched with tape. Then the food, small amount compared to other Chinese... More

Both the environment and food are throwbacks to the '50s (although the restaurant opened in the '60s...time passed slowly in downtown Everett, I suppose.) Having parked our car at the event center, where my son and I were attending an event and cold and hungry, we decided to grab the nearest venue, and the China Doll is directly across the... More

Ordered take-out. The food was alright. Pretty typical Chinese food. The wontons were nothing like I'm used to, not to my liking, but not bad. The general tso's chicken was pretty good. We will continue to look for a better Chinese restaurant.
