never judge a book by its cover.

The outside is uninspiring, however step inside and you enter a large 80,s décor Chinese restaurant reminiscent of Hong Kong in that era. The service is excellent And prompt , your food arrives overflowing, generous and tasty at an amazing price. You always take some home

We went with high expectations, and were sorely disappointed. We ordered 2 entrees, both indicated "spicy" plus the "spicy" Szechuan green beans. There was no "chili" or spice to any of the dishes. The Orange Chicken was sweet?!! The Sizzling Platter peppered prawns and scallops was 80% green pepper chunks and another 10% sweet onion chunks; there were 5 small... More

I have eaten at China Chili under both owners and both locations since it opened many years ago. In all that time I still cannot get enough of my favorite dish, the Spicy Szechuan Prawns. It is a rare day when I order anything else. The Spicy Szechuan Prawn lunch special and all of the other lunch specials come with... More

This is my absolute favorite Chinese restaurant in Phoenix. I come here about 2-3 times a month and it's always consistent. The service is very quick, food comes out hot, and they are very attentive. The boiled wonton soup is a MUST. All the dishes I have tried are amazing, but my go to is salt and pepper pork chops--so... More

China Chilly on 3rd Street just south of Osborn is a restaurant to visit. The greeting is friendly and the table is well set. The menu is wide and selections are plentiful to please the fussiest of palates. But don't look for the traditional tea. It can be ordered of course but it is charged extra.. the soups come hot...

By the time you finish your soup, the meal is in front of you. Food is hot, fresh, and delicious. Perfect if you are limited on time for your lunch hour.

My husband was in the mood for Chinese food and this was within walking distance of our hotel, so I will admit that I just expected a regular Chinese restaurant. I wasn't even that hungry, but I ordered the Mongolian chicken and after the first bite, I just could not stop myself from devouring the entire thing! It was beyond... More

I've driven past this large, windowless building many times over the last 2 years. Outside, it's not very appealing - but I was intrigued by how many cars are in the parking lot most evenings. My wife and I decided to give it a try. It's very large inside, lots of friendly help. The food is typically Chinese fare but... More

Simply the best chinese food in town for your dollar. Superior service and the orange chicken is out of this world. The best part is the price they are extremely affordable but if you are trying lunch during the week they can be quite crowded with a bit of a wait. Love it!!!!!!!!

My problem with so many Phoenician eateries is the diners all seem to think that the 90210 zipcode somehow applies to them. Not the case here! You will not be neglected by your server here because another table is demanding special attention be lavished upon them... you will be neglected by your server because of cultural differences! However... that neglect... More
