Delicious, authentic Chinese food

Got to-go food from here for dinner to take back to our hotel. The portions are huge here. We ordered two menu items and we probably could have just shared one. They gave us a huge box of rice to go with our food as well. With the soup and appetizer that comes with the menu items on top of... read more

We live in Big Sky, and when I browsed through a few other reviews before writing my own, I had to check to see if there was another "Big Sky" somewhere, or another China Cafe! Our portions were certainly NOT "huge" and the food was definitely NOT "piping hot"! China Cafe is conveniently located: in Town Center, near the movie... More

My wife and I decided Chinese food would be a nice alternative to all the burgers, chops, and American style cuisine we had been eating in Montana. The dining area is functional, open spaced, high ceilings, with wooden tables placed so you are not crowded, and hard surfaced floor. This restaurant has a versatile menu, allowing you to choose a...

We enjoyed our meal here. Good food, good service. Very good hot and sour soup. Especially liked being able to choose the components of the meal...you choose the meat, sauce, etc.

We are vacationing in Big Sky and wanted to stay in for dinner so we got take out. We had the sweet/chicken with fried rice and the complete the meal deal for us to share.... The hot & sour soup was delicious not too spicy, just needed a few noodles....Everything was lightly breaded and didn't taste greasy at all.

My family and I live in MT for the summer every year- and nothing is better after a long day hike than a warm meal from China Cafe. Family owned, great service- definitely a hit. Don't miss it if you're craving hearty Asian cuisine.

To start off, this is a family owned/operated establishment. To my surprise, the owners are CU alums! GO BUFFS! The service was quick and the food, in turn, is served extremely hot. Almost to the point where you have to wait for your food to cool off. Of course I didn't because the food was so delicious. Location is usually... More

We had take out. The breading on the "general's chicken" was bland and and tasteless and so much of it that it all fell off the microscopic chicken pieces. The hot and sour soup had only julienned slices of tofu, nothing else. We had the wonton soup. Nothing inside the one wonton in the soup. The rest of the items... More

5 adults and 4 kids, perfect efficient service and excellent food. We ordered 8 different dishes, All arrived timely which was very helpful when children are waiting. We all ate to our hearts content and still had some to take home.
