China Coast provides generously sized portions of bland Chinese dishes. I had General Tsao's chicken and my wife had cashew chicken. Both dishes tasted the same?! For the quality the food is fairly priced. The furniture is worn out and should be replaced. I felt like I was sitting in a hole... read more

China Coast provides generously sized portions of bland Chinese dishes. I had General Tsao's chicken and my wife had cashew chicken. Both dishes tasted the same?! For the quality the food is fairly priced. The furniture is worn out and should be replaced. I felt like I was sitting in a hole instead of on a banquette.

China Coast has been a favorite of mine for the last dozen years. The last two visits there ended our culinary affair. I attributed the poor state of the buffet in the first of the disappointing visits to the fact that we had gotten there late. There was still half an hour left before the buffet supposedly closed. And while... More

This was a very good Chinese restaurant but lately appears to be getting run down and in need of changes. The food is good but has made my sensitive stomach sick two times over the years, so I rarely go there any more. I have eaten their food a couple dozen plus times over the years, but once bitten, twice... More

Took a chance in a Chinese restaurant in a strip mall -- we struck gold! Delicious food, prompt service, plenty to take home. Wish we lived closer so we could come here regularly.

Staying at the Samoset, the girls chose Chinese for dinner. Located in a shopping plaza, access was easy and convenient to the resort. The food was good with generous portions. We'd go again.

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 desk very friendly and helpful certainly be back when... 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.
