Standard Chinese Food That Satisfies

Greasy but hot and fresh and fast every time. Their veggies always taste fresh and crispy and their rice tastes more homemade than most places. Their homemade duck sauce is really quite good. The chicken fingers are more like nuggets and are crispy and good without too much batter, but like all... read more

I did takeout for a large group and got an assortment of items. They have all your standard Chinese food favorites and everyone enjoyed what they got. I find most Chinese food restaurants in New England have the same tasting items with small differences, an egg roll is usually the same no matter where you go, and that is true... More

Do not waste your money at this place. The food is awful and has no taste. The workers put zero effort into the food or the service. It's a hole in the wall. Food is very overpriced. Add $4.00 extra if you want pork in the rice. Extra cost for duck sauce too. We left there feeling upset and disappointed... More

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

First of all the photo above is not the china house instead you will walk in to outdated vaneer coated sticky furniture no AC or ventilation.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
