For a post memorial lunch at a Chinese restaurant, it was quite good. Owners were the ones that ran the old Wah Nam Restaurant in Manila, Philippines, migrated here to the U.S., and the menu did not disappoint. The soup and the Ho To Day were as i remember them as a child. Very tasty. As usual... read more

It's been a long time since we ate at an old fashioned Cantonese style restaurant. I haven't seen chow mien or chop suey on a menu for many years. I ordered the Mongolian beef, and it was okay, nothing to brag about. The meat was tender and well seasoned, but hardly exciting. It was supposed to be a little spicy... More

This place is 10 minutes from our house and we have been ordering take out and dining here for years. Their food is very tasty and they are very fast on getting your order out. The staff is very pleasant and attentive. I would suggest dining in or take out.

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 like stale... 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.
