China Chili is close to the V.A. hospital and also close to where my sister works.so it's a convenient for my sister to meet me there for lunch. The staff is friendly and helpful.

China Chili is 5 minutes from the house...a quick call with your order and it's ready in 10 minutes. The food is good, consistent, and always ready when I arrive to pick it up.

Anytime we're in the area of 3rd Street and Osborn we have to stop and either eat in or take out our lunch. Their house chicken and mongollian beef is so good. The food is spicy but so delicious. The take out is very quick, the restaurant is large and very clean and the staff are pretty good at taking... More

Wow did we get lucky, originally aiming for a restaurant that had moved I had to find a replacement fast. Stumbled on China Chili and was very satisfied. The Peking Duck was very meaty. The braised fish tasted fresh. Other items were fine. It's not Chinatown, but I fed four of us for $60, no drinks, including tip.

This restaurant has great Chinese food. The egg flour soup and the spicy szechaun prawns are excellent. The service is okay, but the food choices are wonderful.

We were a little jaded on our first nights in Phoenix and were looking for a restaurant within walking distance to our hotel and after a quick internet search we found this restaurant listed. It was easy to find but the inside was a barn of a building and quite dated. We were quickly seated, given menu's and drink orders... More

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
