We're on the way to indiana from St. Louis and wanted some Chinese food. Search on tripadvisor and read great reviews about it. It's a very simple place, most of take-outs. The owners were very kind, friendly and attentive. The food was very fresh, good and reasonably priced. Worth it a try.

Don't judge a book by the cover as their appearance does not indicate the quality of the food. Had the four seasons and asked for it spicy. It was enough food for two and was just the right amount of heat. They do not have restrooms but they do have great food.

The food was very good, a tad on the pricey side. The staff was very helpful and polite. I am sure I will eat there again.

When I go to Effingham I always try to go by China Express and get their Vegetable Fried Rice! It is made while you wait and has the best vegetables in it!
