Enjoyed it.

After playing in a senior softball tournament, we were going to have lunch before driving home to Las Vegas, NV. Found this place and were surprised at how many people were in this place. That meant that a lot of folks liked this place. We were shown to a table and got our order taken soon... read more

The worst Chinese food experience ever - take your money and appetite somewhere else - there are few very good in the area. The waiter was totally indifferent to our comments and questions. What a waste! Ended up coming home after "lunch " rushing to eat a wrap.

After trying at least three other places China 8 was all that was left for two hungry people. We were in luck. Certainly not fancy but the food more than made up for it. lt was hot, fresh and delicious. Two soups, hot and sour and egg drop, followed by two luncheon specials, spicy orange chicken and Szechuan beef. These... More

If you are looking for top interior upscale design, skip this review. However, for all other counts, this place is terrific! Absolutely great food, nice servers, very clean, and the best value in Chinese food in the Coachella Valley. Just one symbol: $. (Other places $$-$$$ for Chinese Food). I had shrimp chop suey and it was delicious with a... More

We found this Jewel last year while visiting our resort. The food is very tasty and fresh. We tend to enjoy many Chinese restaurants all over the world as my Wife is a Vegetarian. So every time we are in town, we eat here. The size of the dishes are good and ample. Every time we have left overs for... More

The food was prepared fresh, vegs were crisp and very good. Price was more than reasonable for the lunch. Location is in a... More

Why is it that some people just can't equate cheap, with good? China 8 is a family-run Chinese restaurant in a strip mall, and they serve consistently good food. I thought that the Panda Express a few doors down might put a damper on their business, but no, check it out most evenings and the place is packed with local... More
