traditional chinese food

A Chinese restaurant with out a buffet, just large portions of freshly prepared food. Always hot and tasty, with outstanding friendly and competent staff. Well worth visiting when in the area.

My spouse and I had a hankering for Chinese food the other day. Having recently visited the Mandarin Buffet, we decided to try China House once again. It doesn't have a buffet, but its combination plates are more than enough food for any person. As usual, we were not disappointed. Indeed, I can say that I have never been disappointed... More

China House is the only place our family will buy Chinese food. Their food is always fresh and absolutely delicious. Every New Year's Eve we get takeout and we've never been disappointed. Their lunches are huge and really reasonable. Service is always great. Can't recommend it enough.

My spouse being tired after a half day of shopping, we opted to eat out (a favourite activity!). With a yen for Chinese food, we thought about Mandarin Buffet, but China House won out because of its much lower price and high quality fare. The server/hostess remembered us and asked if we wanted the usual. She has consistently remembered that,... More

Great service but the food wasn't the best. I actually got sick the next day. And I'm very careful with what I eat. I don't usually get sick on Chinese food, but I did there

We have been frequenting China House Restaurant in Cambridge for more than a decade now, and I can honestly say that we have never been disappointed with our food. We decided to treat ourselves by eating out and, since we had not had Chinese for some time (last time was in Myrtle Beach in February), despite my being on Weight... More

With no many asian restaurants it is hard to stand out. The food here is a notch above others I've tried in the area. Service was very good and the meal I had was quite good. The vegetables were excellent, shrimp was good and the chicken balls were average. Portions were generous, enough for your meal and some take home... More

We have had Chinese food here for years. Has been very good every time we have had it. Always greeted by nice friendly owners/managers. Walking distance from a couple of hotels. It is definitely worth trying out.

The hosts were warm and friendly; sadly the food was mediocre at best. Price was far too high for what you received. For example, stir friend vegetables and rice saw rice dominate a small handful of vegetables. This food is filler at best, unimaginative and lacking care.
