Chinese Food in Maine? You bet! Good food, pleasant, friendly service and good value. You can count on consistent quality and taste - a good choice once you have had your fill of chowder...

The food here is really very good, but if you are doing the buffet, grab whatever comes from the kitchen quickly. Otherwise it gets cold sitting in the buffet. Menu food is excellent.

We stopped in here and ordered some egg fu young to go. The order was processed quickly and the order prepared rapidly. We thought the prices were reasonable. The interior of the restaurant looked nice and was well decorated and the restrooms were clean.

We ate supper at the China Rose and thoroughly enjoyed everything about both our meals. The food was flavorful and served promptly. The only drawback to our visit came when one member of the staff started arguing loudly in chinese with another member of the staff. It was very loud, it moved from the kitchen to the dining room to... More

The China Rose Special! I order it every single time I go. I want to order something else but since I love it so much I can't help myself. This is such a friendly restaurant. The service is always top notch. The prices are pretty average.

Excellent chinese food with some Thai food and Japanese food on the menu as well. The owner is a wonderful hard-working woman and she's always friendly!

Disgusting buffet. Dirty restaurant. So many better options nearby. Place used to be good, but time has not been kind and it shows. Food was clearly sitting in buffet for hours with little regards to quality or freshness. Unremarkable restaurant that apparently survives on those Chinese food cravings (hence my visit)! Won't be back.

We ordered hunan chicken, Szechuan green beans, Szechuan beef, chicken fried rice. Nice. It's nothing to write home about but if you are craving Chinese food and you're in Freeport, this might be the choice for you. I also ordered egg drop soup and I didn't care for that very much. All in all, not bad.

Prompt service, very good Chinese food, right on the main drag in Freeport. A great place to rest between shopping.
