Good Chinese Home Cooking

This is not a Chinese takeout place. It's a nice family sit down restaurant . Prices are a little above average- portions are not big enough for family sharing. Waiters are not warm and friendly. But the food is always fresh and not covered in that thick brown sauce like other places. When you... read more

I've been going to China Chalet for awhile. The food is good, but you really don't get enough, for the money your paying. The atmosphere is authentic. Also, their wonton soup is tasteless. This is my place to go, until something else comes to the area.

This place feels like the most authentic Chinese in the area. It is a large restaurant with plenty of seating and offers a large menu of delicious Chinese specialities. Nice spot for family celebrations and special occasions. We highly recommend this place- enjoy!

Went to China Chalet on a recommendation from a friend and was not disappointed. Had to wait a little even with a reservation, but it was well worth it. Service was good. But they balked at taking an AMEX card even though they advertise that they except it. All in all pretty good.

We are lucky enough to live close by to this gem - great menu, courteous and prompt service, and the food is consistently excellent, even when we get take out. We particularly like the cold spicy sesame noodles from the appetizer menu. Great for any group - we've been there for dates and with my toddler. Highly recommend.

Having moved to this area from a place where different ethnic restaurants are the norm, and I had found a favorite Chinese place, perhaps my expectations were too high. I have eaten food from China Chalet once, for lunch. Their portions are standard lunch portions, with a standard lunch special. But their food is, at best, a "meh". The Kung... More

I am a frequent customer (being that I live so close!) at China Chalet. The food is always fresh and they have a nice menu. It's not your typical take out, pictures of food on the wall kind of place and therefore you'll pay a bit more, but I've never had a bad meal there.

The source... My family owned a piece of Lung Fongs restaurant in New York so I think my qualifications are good. This is a very well decorated Chinese Restaurant with a broad array of choices which will satisfy every taste. ***Most importantly they do not use MSG***

Very good food. Upscale Chinese restaurant. Enjoyed the Lettuce Wraps many times here. Prawns with walnuts and vegetables is excellent.

This is one of the best Chinese meals that I have ever eaten. Most of the items on it's menu are suited to American tastes. I had beef in orange sauce. Unlike most Chinese restaurants the beef was very tender and the sauce was not overly spicy. The hot and sour soup was spicy. The service is excellent and the... More
