We needed to feed to young boys pronto and we went with the reviews. We were not disappointed. Drinks arrived within minutes of ordering and food very shortly after. Food comes to the table once ready which may bewilder some but we were used to this in some of the Chinese restaurants in uk and pretty convenient when all are... More

I could write a bunch of stuff but- just go and eat. We often order Chinese food but this was something special. Over several meals, we were never disappointed. Best Chinese meals I've probably ever eaten.

We wanted ice cream and the offerings were very good! There were many people eating their meal inside the restaurant, so one could surmise that the meal was good. Directly across from Big Lots and not too far from Starbucks

Travelling around the desert area we have had BBQ pizza burgers and mexican. Our expectations were not high from the isolation of the place from an Asian community at a military base town. We had the Mongolian beef and the chilli basil with chicken. Both of us are seasoned south East Asian travellers. Asked for the temperature level of chilli... More

We ate dinner at China Express tonight and found the meal filling and delicious. My husband and I both ordered chicken and corn soup as a starter. I had a beef and chicken chili stir fry and my husband had beef and vegetable combination plate with a medium spicy sauce. We couldn't finish it all and packed the leftovers to... More

I really like China Express. The pad thai with shrimp is excellent. I'm not a big bean sprout girl so I substitute brocolli for the slimy bean sprouts. Orange chicken is good. The buffet is great. Love this place. Enterior is lovely too even though the outside is not attractive.

We couldn't belive how much food we got ordering from the lunch menu. Very good too, the vegies were crunchy not over cooked. The meal even included a dish of ice cream

This restaurant has been around forever - with good reason. It's a great little Chinese place with a lot to offer. Their lunch buffets are varied and inexpensive. Most everything is good, service is good, it's an old standby that has stood the test of time.

There is a buffet and a regular menu. Best Thai in town. The property also includes a yogurt shop. This is a well-ran family owned business.
