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

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

I was pleasantly surprised since I usually go to a chinese buffet and pick here and there. This was a very good restaurant. Portions were big and price was not too bad.

Our return trip to Forbidden City went well by starting off with two appetizers the CRAB CHEESE and the BEEF SKEWERS. The crab cheese was very good as described in my first review and the beef skewers are described on the menu as marinated beef skewers with peppers. Upon arrival there were no peppers on the skewers. I did not... More
