“Good and fast Chinese food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2014

Taste of China in North Kingstown has great food at great prices. Wide variety on the menu but I prefer the Lo Mein and the pork fried rice. The inside of the restaurant could use some updating so most of the time I get my food to go. From phone call to pickup is usually around ten minutes. It's a regular weekly staple on the way home from work. Usually open late and on holidays Not the fanciest in town but maybe the best tasting food.

“Standard Fast Food Fare...Short On Servings Lately”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2013

This small strip mall style Chinese place used to be perfect for quick take out. The food is standard fare with no frills, but there was never anything wrong with it. The folks there are always friendly and the food is always hot. And up until recently, plentiful. For about the last 6 months or so I have noticed a reduction in the volume they give you in take out. A combo plate sweet and sour pork for example used to have one half the container being chicken, and the other half being fried rice. Now thy bed the whole container down with rice and just add a smaller portion of your main meal on top of it. I could never finish one of their combos before, but can now. At least the meal portion of the combo anyway. As much as I have been going here for years, and I like the people there, I will be taking my business elsewhere I'm afraid. If this place were fancy, really great Chinese I would probably not care about the servings size that much., But the amount you get now is really noticeably smaller, with the same price as always, and that sinks them as far as I am concerned...: (

“CHEAP CHINESE FOOD ON THE GO”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2010

Personalized service, cheap eats and convenient location all add up in the restaurant's favor. It's a small, family-run cubby hole right off Post Road, but it has a very regular clientele that swear by it's tasty food. The owner's wife is the manager and she runs a tight ship, albeit in spartan decor. Value for the money would be the main theme here.
