I moved away from Long Island to New Jersey years ago, and one down side to that is the Chinese food. Chinese food in New Jersey is not very good especially the Chicken Chow Mein, which has always been my favorite dish. So when I was in the area I couldn't resist going to this old style sit down Chinese... More

As some other reviewers have stated, this is a throwback Chinese restaurant and it's showing its age. One of the reviews says, this is the best Chinese food on Long Island. Well, I think they have to get out more often. The food is plain basic Chinese. Don't get me wrong here, the food isn't bad, it's just far from... More

Make sure that they understand well what you want because they are fast. They are rarely wrong. They have lunch specials until 3 PM that can be simple or good combinations. Dinner has tablecloth...

This restaurant is a throwback from my youth. This is the best chinese restaurant. Hot tasty food with concerned service. Pricing is right. This is the way Chinese food use to taste. No frills, nothing fancy. Glad I found the China View in Plainview NY.

Boring, bland, cantonese cooking with poor service. If you want tasty cuisine, try Szechuan or something else.

We found ourselves in Plainview for business and wanted a good but inexpensive meal. We happened to be parked in front of China View and after looking up reviews decided to give it a try. True to the reviews, the place was awesome. This is a throwback to the Chinese restaurants of yesteryear when you can still get "one from... More

China View has been in the Plainview Shopping Center for as long as I can remember (I'm a baby boomer and proud of it!). I've read in some other travel sites that "this is your mother and father's Chinese Restaurant". That's fine for me! Less noise, less little kids running around screaming out of control, and people my age enjoying... More
