We prefer to go to the China Inn over the buffets in the area because the food is cooked to order. The food is good but resentley we have noticed that the portions have gottern smaller.

Kung Pao chicken was chock full of CABBAGE (!?). No other vegetables in it. We asked it to be prepared spicy, got no spice or heat whatsoever. They don't take American Express. Asked for itemized receipt, one was written onto a business card. Am amazed the staff can find their way home at night.
