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

Sorry, just plain nasty. Food was tasteless, nothing fresh used. So dissapointing. Don't bother.

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

I have been here several time now and have never been disappointed- if you are looking for a fancy eating place, then this isn't it ....... if you are looking for great tasting Chinese Food at the great price, then you have arrived..... Prices are great - they have around a hundred combo plates to choose from. The one I... More

I have tried this restaurant three separate times. Each time was more disapointing than the last. They have the worst hot and sour soup I have ever tasted. Their deep-fried items come soggy with grease (assuming their oil was not hot enough). The multiple health code violations easily observed were quite disturbing. Don't waste your money here.
