Our Take Out Meal Was Quite Good

I was busy Christmas shopping so decided to bring something in for dinner and China Coast was in the shopping center. The menu was fairly typical but everything was very well prepared and we enjoyed our selections. Although I didn't eat in the restaurant it appeared to be absolutely spotless. The... read more

Had 2 hours to kill in Rockland and I heard a rumor the Chinese here was the best in town! I ordered a Pu Pu for 2 to go and it came with a pint of rice. The rice was cooked beautifully, shrimp tasted fresh, egg rolls were good as we're the crab rangoons. The chicken wings had a funny... More

I've eaten at China Coast twice while in the area. The price is reasonable, portions are large, staff is friendly and everything is served piping hot. Nothing fancy or exceptional but good American-style Chinese food for a fair price.

We went for dinner fairly late and there weren't many people in the restaurant, but we could see quite a few take out orders being prepared. The menu was extensive and reasonably priced. One of us had the chicken with garlic sauce combination with egg roll, another had the General Tsao's chicken combination with egg roll, and I had crab... More

My husband my self and our friends have gone to this restaurant twice, we live in the area and its the only Chinese buffet in close to home. HOWEVER, the first time we went the waitress kept bugging us about a tip. We didn't leave it because you don't ask for a tip. She chased after my husband as we... More

While I have never been a fan of the buffet, { overwhelmingly greasy, unhealthy, options} I am however a big fan of their takeout! I always ask for their Lemon, Orange, Sesame, or Garlic meat dishes to be done with Tofu, instead. They are always accommodating! Veggies are done just right, crisp, and healthy, and the sauces are too good!... More

I've dined in and gotten take out here for many years, and I'm running out of patience. The Chicken Curry I got tonight was described on the menu as having potato in it. I asked them to add broccoli and onions to it as the menu description seemed otherwise bland. Imagine my surprise and delight to find morsels of Americana... More
