Great!

We order from Absolutely Chinese Restaurant often and have never been disappointed. All is delivered on time, hot and tasty! I recommend this for take-out OR dining in.

The family at Absolutely Chinese are so personable and accommodating, it's my favorite Chinese dining experience. The Tung An Chicken is sooo good and they will adjust the heat, sweetness and add veggies according to your wishes. I never saw this dish on any menu before and it is amazing if you like ginger and hot peppers. The Moo Shu... More

We used to live in Rolling Meadows and we'd barely get off the phone from placing our order and our food would either be at our door or ready at the location! They are very good about special requests (no green peppers, extra pineapple, etc.). Their food is tasty and their prices are fair. We've never eaten in the restaurant... More

Best little Chinese restaurant in the area. No MSG used. Usually have take out. Dining room is busy. Friendly service. Delish!

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
