Consistently good!

We have been going to the China House for several years, and often driving out of our way to go. We just left there this evening after another enjoyable meal. We usually order the combo plates which offer good variety at fair pricing. The staff are also very friendly here.

We went based on the reviews and the food was awesome. Lightly breaded, very flavorful. We will definitely be back!

First of all, the pork fried rice was, at best, average. The pork ribs were mostly fat. If you like eating fat then this is for you. I couldn't believe the breaded shrimp. I took a bite and to my surprise and disgust, the shell was still on the shrimp..! Will I be back? NOPE..!

As do many, on Sundays my spouse and I generally have lunch at a restaurant. We decided on a perennial favourite of ours: China House in Cambridge, Ontario. One reason is that it does not raise its prices on weekends. Lunch--a combination plate--is $10.99, and includes coffee, tea (Chinese tea included), or soft drink (in the can). We have never...

China House has been around for a long time. They are a Cambridge icon of sorts as it relates to Chinese food. While I've not actually eaten in the restaurant, but I get take out from here on a fairly regular basis. The price is definitely higher than average but I keep going back because of the quality of the... More

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.

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 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
