Worst Chinese food experience ever. We had the buffet, big mistake!! Huge cost ($2.50 for soda and no refills?!) and no options other then things like baked beans and "chicken toast" ?!? If you enjoy food that can hardly be classified as humane grade that is served in a unclean restaurant then I would recommend China Hill, other wise eat... More

But we forgot to read the reviews for the restaurant first. We choose the buffet, it was Sunday, and it was more expensive with different than the week day choices. It just wasn't a place that we would return to.

Buffet offered daily in July and August and Sundays the rest of the year. The food was fresh? Varied, and well prepared.

I always get a take out from this place when I am on the go, and the food is just wonderful. I have the sweet and sour plates with usually an appetizer or two and some soup. The price is fine and the service is so fast. You can sit in the lounge and wait for your meal and enjoy... More

I had dinner at China Hill today for the first time and was not impressed. The portions are ample, but the food was poor to mediocre. I had a beef stir fry with snow peas and other vegetables. The beef was tough, hard to chew at times, and had a strange flavor (bordering on wild game). It was served in... More

If hungry while travelling through Ellsworth, Maine, there are many options. Save your wallet and your stomach. Please reconsider if you think you want to have some Chinese food @ China Hill Restaurant. This had to be the worst food we have eaten, and there certainly have been many restaurants we had tried. The bill was $40.00 for a family... More

This restaurant is ok, not the best Chinese but I've definitely had worse. If you're looking for affordable Chinese food and a good buffet this is a good choice.

We have done take out from this restaurant several times, and each time one or both of us ended up with Montezuma's revenge, or perhaps I should call it No Fun Son's revenge! We ordered the same things two of times we had the take out, and the other two the only common denominator was the China hill Fried Rice,... More

We want so badly to have a good Chinese place in town that we have given this place 4 chances...... "4" strikes and we are out. Whether you eat in or carry out, it is always dirty. We feel the food is always re re re reheated. This place could be better managed. Just skip this place
