I eat out here quite frequently. At least once a week for 2 months. The food has been day and night. Most of the time hard chicken balls like they were reused, the rice this time taste like minute maid and was not chicken fried. Our chow mien which is why we went there all the time was the worst...

Food tasted and looked like it was from a week ago and cooked again! The chicken balls were hard and the rice dry, it was inedible.

My husband and I were in Truro and decided to try Chinese as we have no Chinese food restaurants in our town. Aware of only one such restaurant in Truro, we asked the proprietor of a convenience store for her recommendation. She named several but stated her favourite was The China Rose on Price Street. Not knowing what to expect,... More

Good value and selection of combination plates. The service was very attentive. However the food quality left a lot to be desired. Chicken balls were rather uninteresting, and the fried rice was overcooked, or reheated one too many times. The grains were dry and hard. I wouldn't go back, mainly because of the food quality.

We are in town overnight and ordered delivery to our hotel room because of the good reviews. Well, over 2 hours later, it arrived COLD, without plates or utensils or napkins. When we phoned, we were told that it would arrive in about 45 minutes. Over an hour later, we phoned back and were told that it had been sent... More

My wife and I had our first date here 16 years ago, and had our 13th wedding anniversary dinner here tonight. Always good food - the egg rolls and homemade plum sauce are the best. The ambiance is starting to get a little dated, but the staff are friendly, so an overall very good experience.

I have been very disappointed the last two times our family ordered takeout from China Rose. Once consistently good, it now seems to be consistently bad. The egg rolls were not tasty at all, the almond chicken guy din had no almonds but lots of Chinese cabbage and the rice was rubbery and greasy. Time to move on to another... More
