Good chicken

I love the pineapple chicken in here! I ate it with rice and took take-away. I have to go there again because it was so good and I'll recommend this to everyone

Deli China is consistently spot on. Look, it's not gourmet food, but for around 10 euros, you are gonna find yourself plenty full at the end of the meal. This place is perfect for lunch or dinner, and takeout is a fine option here. If you want to eat on site, beware that the dining area is small (maybe seats... More

I have visited Deli China 2 times. The first time was years ago and the food was quite awful, it lacked taste and it was served rather cold. The rice was just one big lump and it tasted like it had been sitting there for a longer period of time. Only now I decided to visit the place again and... More

Every time I visit Joensuu I will have either lunch or dinner eaten in this small but nice restaurant. Evidently not much is changed there during the last 20 years. Beef, pork and chicken portions are very good, and rice well prepared (you can have so much rice you can eat). Service is always very friendly, and you do not... More

I ordered Ox with garlic and the garlic was the only thing with any taste. I don't know what went wrong in the kitchen but this just wasn't good. The meat bits had an odd texture and the rice was really dry and in one chunk. Friend I was having dinner with had garlic chiken and he didn't enjoy his... More

Had spring rolls for starters and they were ok. Six chicken portions for main courses were not typical chinese ones, because chicken pieces were really small. Similar vegetables for each portion. You can also eat at the terrace, if it is warm.

The place is a very bare small and tight room, no ambience with some corny details for decor and friendly but poor service. The food is the sort of stuff taken out of a plastic buckets, mixed with some sauce from another plastic bucket and then walloped out to you. But by local standards it is relatively cheap.

We ordered take out from this place, the food was disgusting. We ordered 6 different dishes and not one of them was even satisfactory. Picking up the order was not exactly a joy either, the quoted time was 30 minutes until able to pick up, yet we had to wait another 30 minutes. So we got a good look at... More

It's located in the very center of the city, but in a bit secluded place, so it's quite peaceful. It offers a lunch on weekdays, when the food is even cheaper than usually (usually it's a bit more than 10€ for a main course). You won't be hungry after you leave this place and the food is just great! I... More

I don't recommend this place to anybody. Where to start from? We found it in our Lonely Planet guide (which usually doesn't go wrong) and decided to give it a go. However Finland Lonely Planet was written in 2007. Things must have been different back then if they decided the restaurant was worth something. When we were sitted, there were... More
