This smaller restaurant offers a nice selection of Chinese, and the atmosphere is nice. For a long time it was my daughter's and my favorite "go to" Chinese restaurant. We like the white-meat only almond or cashew chicken.

I’ve been a fan of Forbidden City for years, ever since I was a student at SVSU many years ago. I make it a point to visit at least once whenever I’m in town. The décor is a bit dated and the restaurant is tucked away in a quiet strip mall but don’t let that deter you. The food is... More

This is one of our "go to" places.....I highly recommend Forbidden City! The food is very consistent. The service is top notch. The sizzling rice soup is great and I love the Mongolian Beef. I've had a number of different dishes and they all have been great!

Love the fried won tons & vegi fried rice! Eat there several times a week when I am in town just to get my fix. Love that they make the vegi fried rice to order so I can delete mushrooms & add extra water chestnuts. Love it!

I definitely judge a book by it's cover when it comes to restaurants. Although this restaurant is not sketchy, it does not have the cutest facade. Additionally, the inside decor is a tad dated. HOWEVER...the food is delicious!! I definitely judged, but when I received my egg drop soup, it was some of the best egg drop soup I've ever... More

This restaurant has been here over 35 years and we have never been disappointed. The food is great and very, very reasonable. It is a bit hidden in the back of a lot off Bay Rd. but well worth the search!

I was a little negative on a previous review but I felt things had improved at a recent trip here. They were never "bad" , always one of the best but the food is a little improved over previous visits. There were four of us and we had the imperial dinner for four. Sizzling rice soup was great as usual,... More

I have lived in Saginaw since I was three years old and this has always been my favorite restaurant. Their sizzling rice soup is my all time favorite food. In Saginaw, we have a lot of Chinese restaurants but this one has the best food made with the best ingredients. The shrimp is always tender, never rubbery and they use... More
