can they please get fresh oil to cook in??

I've lived near this place for more than 20 years and every now and then I decide to give it another chance and I'm always sorry I did. It wasn't good before and it's still not good. The food is not of good quality: too much sauce and fillers, not enough vegies and meats, and it always tastes... read more

This place is yummy with still many dishes I'd love to try. The environment is average - nothing extremely awesome to actually eat inside. Their food is consistently great tasting with an assortment of different selections to eat. I'd recommend trying this place. We had plenty of leftovers and the food was just as good at home. This place isn't... More

Try their Mongolian beef and fried rice, it is unbelievably tasty! The eggrolls and crab rangoons are my favorite appetizers.

I have been coming to China Chef since it first opened in a strip mall on Dempster MANY years ago. You can always count on great food.

Did a pickup on Thursday night. Service at pickup was efficient. You open the double doors and you can smell the cooking oil permeate the place. Food used to be pretty OK. Ordered three dishes. All were extremely greasy. This chef appears to be cooking the oil with vegetables and meat and noodles...not the other way around. Anyone mildly conscious... More
