Great Chinese food

We usually get the take out....tons of food for the price. Everything I have had on the menu is delicious! The crab rangoons are to die for...I also love the chicken fried rice and egg rolls.

This used to be our go to Chinese Restaurant but starting in the summer of 2014 the quality of the food really started to fall and got so bad we will never return. Add that to poor service, forgotten items when ordering take out and you have a terrible experience

I told our waitress and she explained that the cook had mixed up the salt and the sugar. I think I would have checked dishes that were... More

My family and I have been eating at East China Inn for years. It's not the Chinese restaurant closest to our house, but it's the best. The food is authentic and fresh, the portions are more than generous, and the menu is varied. The wait staff are all Chinese and very friendly and accommodating: if you want something that isn't...

Hands down, East China Inn has the best Chinese beef meals we have ever encountered when picking up take out Chinese food. All of their food is tasty and a treat to eat, but their beef items are just amazing. The prices are a tad high, but when selecting a beef entree we always feel that the end result of... More

We've been eating at East China Inn for years...back when Batavia was the only location in this area. Food was always great and service friendly. Not the case anymore. For the past several years, we've frequented the location on Montgomery Rd. in Aurora. Not sure what's going on there, but found a dark hair in the Sweet & Sour Chicken... More
