“Small but good food”

China Doll Restaurant
Ranked #27 of 39 Restaurants in Massena
Restaurant details
Reviewed 4 June 2014 via mobile

Small restaurant. If you are used to choosing 100 or more items in a buffet, this is not for you. I like it because there are maybe only 20 or so items to choose but they are made fresh all the time and very tasty. You will go home feeling full and very satisfied with the meal. Have visited many times and never disappointed. This is a nice small family owned business worth a visit on main st downtown Massena.

I prefer the buffet but you can eat off the menu as well. The food on the buffet is always hot and fresh as it is served in small quantities. It is replenished quickly.

China doll has the best food around, best egg rolls and best won ton soup hands down, my absolute favorite Chinese in the north country

We went for lunch on a weekday and it was fairly crowded when we arrived which we took as a good sign. The buffet was not very impressive with the usual brown sauce dish assortment so we decided to order off of the menu. The wonton soup was extremely salty with no discernible flavor. Our entrees (pork lo mein and General Tso's Chicken) arrived quickly but were not very good. The Lo Mein was made with ramen noodles and although the veggies were fresh and cooked correctly to tender crisp, the dish as a whole was bland, greasy, and entirely too salty. The chicken dish was also bland, not spicy in any way. The sauce that came with the egg rolls was interesting in that it was orange juice based. This was the one bright spot in the entire meal.
We were underwhelmed with our lunch and definitely will not return. The service was good, but it just can't make up for the really bad food.
