Tasty Chinese food that overall is a good eat

My review is going to be a little mixed for this place. The food had definite highs and some somewhat disappointing low which were more disappointing because the rest of it was so delicious. However they were not terrible errors and to be fair the order we received was a takeout. We ordered... read more

Great restaurant and especially good value for lunch. They offer a good choice of items on the lunch menu and all come with several choices of side dishes. I especially like the green bean chicken.

This is my fave Chinese spot. The best deal you can get is if you go for lunch during the week. The lunch deal is a soup (Egg drop or hot and spicy), rice (brown, white or fried), an egg roll, plus an entree. That's a lot of food for one price. When I got some of my friends to... More

We often choose Brown Rice Restaurant for after event gatherings, for a leisurely relaxation after our choral performances. The healthful menu is prepared with the freshest ingredients, with brown rice rather than white rice being served unless otherwise requested. I have enjoyed seafood, meat and even vegetarian dishes here, sometimes with sake, wine or beer. The service can be slow... More

Our family has eaten here at least 10 times in the past year. We bring friends who come to visit, everyone is always happy with the food. It's not a knock-your-socks-off place, just simple dishes prepared with fresh ingredients, priced reasonably. We order family style and get many different things and try everything. Yes, there is no MSG and they... More

This place has a live performer on a stringed instrument. That's about all it has. Probably because they stress healthy Chinese food, we found the two dishes we ordered virtually tasteless (no MSG?) . The rice that came with it was sticky. Also, they hadn't cleaned the syrup lines in their soda dispenser so my Diet Coke tasted terrible. Add... More
