a Good lunch

I visit China Rose for lunch when I'm in Truro with my mother. It's a nice break from shopping, and the people who work there are quite friendly and casual. The lunch special is always tasty, and hot. It seems like it's the NS version of Chinese food similar to the others in town - but... read more

I am a regular visitor to this restaurant. I find the food to be of good quality and the servers to be knowledgeable, courteous, helpful and friendly. If you enjoy Chinese food, this is the place for you.

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.

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.

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
