the price is so cheap for the quality of food you get, I always come here when I visit home. It is absolutely the best Chinese food you can get anywhere. I live in san diego and still haven't tried another Chinese resturant

My husband I come here a couple times a month for their lunch special on the weekends. We always get a good meal at a reasonable price and what's unusual about this place is that they serve their lunch specials 7 days a week. Most Chinese restaurants only have specials during the work week. Their Egg Foo Young I especially... More

Been enjoying meals here for several years and they never disappoint. As far as Chinese restaurants go, it's one of the better ones, if not the best, in the Fox River Valley. Although my wife likes to try different dishes, I can't recall a time when I've ordered anything other than the Honey Sesame Chicken...love it!! Better than any other... More

We used to be a regular customer until last night. They wouldn't honor a coupon that had no expiration date and argued with me for more than 10 min! Never again will we go back to a place that doesn't value their customers.

We love the Honey Sesame Chicken at East China Inn... everything else is pretty much standard Chinese Take Out fare...

I think the quality of the food and the ambiance in the restaurant are both very good. We always get the cranky waiter - which has become somewhat of a family joke. He's very good and attentive - just never smiles. If you're looking to dine out for Chinese food, this place is very good.

Recently attended a little birthday dinner here, staff was pleasant; however the food wasn't so nice. The chinese veggies should have included water chestnuts, however, it tasted a little like uncooked white potatoes. 3 dinners, a pot of tea and two egg rolls cost approximately $48. High sticker price for a rushed low quality meal. I've eaten here at lunch... More

Lunch here is great. You get a lot of food for a low price, and the food is excellent. The lunches include soup and tea, and for a dollar more you get an eggroll. They recently downsized the restaurant, but the decor is much nicer.

My wife and I have been visiting this place for nine years and have never left unhappy. Located downtown in a strip mall this place is a local gem. The food is outstanding and so is the customer service. The dining room and decor could use some updating and TLC. But, all and all, the place is worthy of a... More
