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

Always enjoy their food. Love any form of chicken received here. Do have trouble eating rice but with care - can manage that also. Good atmosphere although a bit dim for my liking.

If you think Chinese food can't have red sauce, this may not be the place for you. If, however, you love egg rolls and chicken balls, then... wow. Just dined there this evening and enjoyed fresh, homemade egg rolls and fresh, homemade plum sauce. I'm pretty sure the S&S chicken was homemade too. It was authentic Canadian "Chinese" they was...

The cook knows how to add that extra touch to make the meal good. The eggroll was handmade and the plun sauce was heated.
