Stopped in for a late lunch/early dinner and was pleasantly surprised to find that, even on the weekend, they ran a lunch special until 3:00 p.m. I had the General's Chicken, which I found to be quite good. It came with soup, egg roll, rice, hot tea and a fortune cookie. The servings are large. I would return when I'm... More

Came here with my local family who said this place was THE BEST! I thought the food in general was just average, though I must say the "Walnut Prawns" were excellent! Maybe it was just an "off night" for the restaurant, or the other items ordered weren't my favorites.

My family and I been eating at this place for years. Just lately the service was really bad! The waitress said we gave poor tip! We tipped by her service and she gave us bad service! She didn't understand our order, but the worst thing is that when we were not finish eating she threw us boxes. She never came... More

Good food, right priced, accommodates groups, efficient wait staff, but not too friendly. Good neighborhood spot.

We took another couple to Wonderful for an early dinner. The newbies were Wonderful virgins who had heard about the good eats through the grapevine. Our party of four arrived before the crush -- around 5:30pm. The place was full by the time we left. We decided to share Family Dinner C -- you can check out the online menu... More

It is our favorite. Have always been pleased with whatever we've ordered. It is always busy so bring your patience, and they're pretty quick. I would not hesitate to recommend this to all.

We live a half mile from this restaurant and eat here several times a month for lunch. Portions are very generous. The food quality seems to vary, perhaps based on who is cooking that day. The won ton soup is most noticeable as it is sometimes just O.K. and other times terrific. The same applies to the fried rice as... More

This little restaurant may be a little hard to find but the food has always been good. We always order takeout. The portions are good and so is the taste. Every time my parents visit we have to get Chinese food at least once and we typically get it from here.

We don't live in CH anymore so we have found another restaurant to go to but when we are close or if requested we always come to Wonderful. No one else makes as good a wonton soup in my opinion. In fact if we have colds this is the chicken soup we crave. Visited this last weekend to pick up... More

This restaurant USED to be very good. But they must have changed cooks and or Owners because service and food has gone steadily downhill. We always order our food with the caveat of no MSG. The last several times in both our dine in and take-out there was definitely MSG added. We of course mentioned this to the manager and... More
