If you are on the Island and have a craving for American style Chinese food then you have a place to go in the China house. This was my first time visiting the restaurant and it wasn't bad. We ordered the Sweet and Sour Chicken, House Special Lo-Mein, Boneless Spareribs and Crabmeat Rangoons. It is just as good as any... More

Went here for the first time last night and got a Pu-Pu Platter, pork fried rice and wonton soup. Was in top 2 of pork fried rices my sister and I have ever had. The wonton soup was fabulous -- broth super clear and wontons bigger than I like, but delicious nonetheless. Everything was super fresh, the crab rangoons were... More

First of all the photo above is not the china house instead you will walk in to outdated vaneer coated sticky furniture no AC or ventilation. The food is awful over cooked chicken inedible and rancid vegetables and sauce. The place is very dirty and no paper towels in the bathroom. The egg rolls are stale and the fried rice... More

The food is excellent and the prices are reasonable for the vineyard. The customer service was great and I would Definately come back. We ordered teriyaki beef sticks,veg lo mein and general Tao chicken and it was delicious especially the beef sticks. Good quality beef and heavenly sauce. Yum!

With the closing of the Vineyard Haven Chinese Restauant, our choices on-island for Chinese food are down to just two. While I wouldn't say this is award-worthy, this is pretty good Chinese at a reasonable price. (Well, reasonable for the Vineyard.)

I am a year round resident on Martha's vineyard and have seen this restraunt decline and the lady who runs the counter has no customer service skills. Food is nothing great either. If I could I would rate this business zero stars I would.

My advice is to ask for exactly what you want!! They are very accommodating should you have any dietary restrictions. Everything Ive ever ordered is fresh! I love the steamed dumplings, and steamed chicken & broccol! I could live on their broccoli!!!!! It's my local takeout venue, and I appreciate their consistency and good value!

I chose Chinese because I like a lot of veggies. I usually LOVE Chinese. Was going to dine in, but TOO hot (no one in luncheon area should have been a sign), so I got take out lunch combo. Rating scale; 1-wouldn't eat, 5-fabulous, this rates a 2-only barely edible. Fried rice was practically tasteless. Good thing I asked for... More

Not fresh tasting at all. Borders on inedible. Avoid at all costs.
