I don't have the heart to rate anything "terrible," but this place has never, in its years of being open on the Vineyard, served good Chinese food. As a result, it's never crowded, however; so if all you want is to fill the hole in your belly on a busy day, go for it.

We were craving for something asian. We ordered the sesame beef and seafood dish. Both were good. Price of dishes are mostly in the low teens depending on what you order. Service is ok. Not bad...

Now it may have been because it was "off season" but odd was aweful. No beer or wine (seasonal license) but no polynesian drinks at all.

The service was pleasant. The food was made quick. It was very typical American Chinese food. It hit the spot but didn't "wow"... More

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

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

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.
