classic Chinese restaurant

You get what you expect in a convenient location, with pleasant service at a good price. Nothing new or out of the ordinary, however.

December 25 and except for L L Bean, just about everything else in Freeport was closed. Had a lovely meal: friendly helpful staff, a bountiful buffet, and dishes were constantly replenished. Certainly worth a visit if you happen to be doing the shopping tour.....

Even though it's an hour drive away from our home, for the last 10+ years this has been one of our favorite dinning places. The new owners have expanded the lunch buffet which is nice, the dinner portions are slightly larger which is good, the service is great, BUT the Flavors and Taste of the food has gone way down...

We were visiting overnight as part of shopping in Freeport. We felt the food was not not good. We had ordered a pork and a beef dish and there was no discernible difference in the taste or appearance of the slimy , heavily sauced meat, which lent the sense that it had been soaking for hours. The portions were large... More

We stopped in here to get some takeout when we were in Freeport over the weekend. It was very good! We got a pupu platter,pork fried rice and chicken lo mein. The rice and lo mein was very fresh and some of the best we have had. The fried food was not at all greasy and was also very tasty... More

The staff rushed us through the meal even though there were only 2 other couples in the restaurant. The szechuan chicken was rated to be hot and spicy, but it was totally bland. We also had beef and broccoli. The chicken and beef had a jelly like texture, not at all like fresh meat. The vegetables in both dishes were... More

Recently returned for my favorite spicy Szechuan shrimp and found it packed with huge, tender shrimp in a delicious sweet, tangy, nicely hot sauce, but the veggie mix was dominated by chopped celery. Must maintain quality to keep customers coming back!

It had been several years since we had eaten at China Rose, but I remember this place as having good food and good service. It was one of our favorites. Something has changed. The food is simply not tasty. We should have checked the Trip Advisor reviews before we stopped in. Once again, reviewers on this site have it right.... More

Went here on a Sunday with a girl friend. We both had the buffet at $10. There was barely a spoonful of each food item on the buffet in the metal pans. And what was there was decidedly cold. This was a lunch time, at 12:30. ugh. We will not return.
