I have been eating at Ching Hwa for around 20 years. Although the chairs and wallpaper, etc. are showing their age, the food is always excellent. I've tried many of the dishes on the menu, but my absolute favorite is Twice Cooked Pork--pork strips with lots of ultra fresh cabbage, black mushrooms and green pepper in a really tastey sauce. I order it "mild" because I'm not a big fan of too much heat. Other favorites are: orange beef (be sure to pick out those hot chili peppers if you don't want it to get too spicy), almond chicken, sesame pork or chicken, and shrimp with vegetables. The spring rolls are great and be absolutely sure you have the Sizzling Rice Soup. A friend and I ordered it last week even though it was 95 degrees outside, because it's sooo good. The lunches are a fantasic bargain and the leftovers from dinners never stay in the fridge very long.

I have eaten dinner at this place for years. This is a decent Chinese/Mandarin restaurant. The service is usually quite good and you get your food very quickly. The amount of food that you get is impressive and worth the price. The food can be a bit bland unless you choose something flavorful. The interior is really interesting. I did have a not too good experience when I went for lunch with a group. The food was quite different and tasted off, especially the soup-I don't know if they had a different cook or what the deal was. We waited forever and we were the only ones there! Other than that it is worth it for dinner. Everyone working there usually moves very fast and if you wait to be seated you can hear how much the phone rings for takeout! However, it's worth dining there for the ambiance.

Amazing Chinese! You pay for what you get which is almost always two meals worth
