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.

We often frequent the East China Inn in North Aurora and find it consistently good. We were in the area and tried this one and found it to be very good also. The service was attentive and the food was very good. Based on our experience at the other location we expected this one to be good and we were... More

Had the best lightly beaded / fried fish with Chinese vegetables on pan fried noodles instead of rice. The last place that came close to this in taste was the fresh fish I had in San Francisco. My new found favorite restaurant

I am always very happy with the East China Inn experience. The wait staff is helpful and friendly. The food is a very good quality and delicious. The prices are amazing for the amount of food. The lunch specials include rice and an egg roll for less than $6.00. Amazing!

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

Been here half a dozen times hoping it will get better because we live right down the street. My dish was so salty on the last trip that it was burning my mouth. 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
