Good food.., not great.

I've eaten here a few times. Usually in a pinch.., it's convenient and fast, and the food isn't bad. But if I want good Chinese food and I have more time, I go elsewhere.

My girlfriends and I went for the lunch buffet and all 4 of us enjoyed the food. The buffet was plentiful and hot. We received soup from a server, egg drop or sweet n' sour. Tea came with the meal and of course our dessert was a fortune cookie. Yum!

Delivery is available. Lo mein is excellent. So is the beef fried rice. I also enjoy the crab pockets. Egg rolls are okay, but I've had better.

Finally stopped in with my wife after having wanted to try it for awhile and it was relatively decent. The service was exceptional. Friendly and happy to accommodate ingredients in a particular dish to suit those ordering, however, it doesn't always have the desired results. The egg drop soup is spot on perfect as well as the appetizers, which are... More

I love this place. I don't eat take out often, but when I do this place is one of my first thoughts to go to. The food is fast, very good, and the prices reasonable. If I have a friend coming over this is my go to place for some appetizers and dinner. I do not eat meat so I... More

I decided to try out this restaurant since it was recommended to me by my boss. I did not do the buffet but did carry-out for lunch. I was expecting generous portion sizes per the norm of Chinese carry-out. This was the smallest quantity of food that I have ever received out of any Chinese restaurant. You will NOT have... More

Excellent food and fast service. My wife and I are picky about Chinese food and found Absolutely Chinese when we moved to palatine. Incredible! I suggest sweet and sour chicken or the beef chow fun. Enjoy!

I've only been here for lunch - it is near where I worked - and the modest buffet served for about $8 is a high quality treat. The waitress serves your choice of soup (there is also a regular menu at noontime) and the rest is up to you. The choices don't vary much from day to day, and this... More
