good deal, but not the best Chinese restaurant

This restaurant is located in the town long time. They are quick and professional. You can find the good deal here. You are very full after finishing the meal here absolutely with a good price. Probably, cheapest in the town. However, it is not the best Chinese place in the town. I wouldn't... read more

They don't really have combination plates consisting of 4 items, which we are used to ordering. They have 2 item plates, but managed to get what we wanted. We had enough food to eat twice! For the amount and quality of the food we paid $16 there but in nova Scotia we would have paid around $40! The food was... More

For over 30 years, China Light has provided fast, inexpensive Cantonese food for the Bangor area. The wonton soup is as good as it gets and the subgum chicken chow mein remains a standout. Where they attempt different schools of Chinese cooking, they are not as high quality, but their Tofu Family Style is a great bargain.

This is Chinese Fast Food- lots of the standards they just get them ready quick. Only a few seats to sit in, they make bank on take out. Though I am not a vegetarian I really like the Szechuan Spicy Tofu. I have never left here hungry- serving sizes are always good. They have added delivery. Prices are excellent. If... More

I have tried Chinese takeout from every place in Bangor and China Light is by far the best in the area. The reviews i have read here are absolutly ridiculous and my advice to anybody reading them is to try this place and form your own opinion. I order takeout/delivery once a week for the past 20+ years and i... More

We have always gotten our Chinese takeout at China Light. Lately it has been dry and tasteless, it use to be so good! Last night we thought we would try it one last time and it was awful, dried out pork, chicken overdone and dry, even the rice was terrible and tasteless. The dog couldn't even chew it! You lost...

I will never forget the experience I had with China Light. My family brought home takeout and shortly after I ate, my heart raced and raced to the point where I had to go to bed. I thought I would die. I highly recommend if you have an intolerance to MSG, you clearly ask for no MSG. This is not... More

We like China Light for the convenience and because the food isn't bad... not very authentic, typically prepared expected dishes, but we like it. There is a huge variety of combo meals, which means it's quick and easy to get what everyone likes. I can also feed a family of three for under $20, which is a good deal anytime.... More

We liked how it was near the Mall but again was not impressed by the local food. Not as good as in our state.
