Strip mall location with good food

When you sit down, you're greeted with a bowl of fresh fried noodles and dipping sauces. The hot green tea arrives next, to sip while you peruse the menu. The deep-fried crab and cheese appetizer was average/good, but the steamed vegetable dumplings were delicious. You have a choice of brown or... read more

Abacus serves up good Chinese food in an area that lacks a lot of solid Asian cuisine. Portions are adequate, flavors are savory and deep, and service is solid. It is a trustworthy Chinese restaurant in a strip-mall which is not always the case....

Ordered delivery when I was down in the area for work. Even though ordering via phone was semi-difficult the food was good. I got hot and sour soup and Singapore noodles with only chicken. The soup was great and I really enjoyed the noodles. They got my order correct omitting the pork and shrimp. I would order take out from... More

When we go for Chinese food, Abacus is always at the top of our list for eat-in or takeout. For the many years we ordered at this BYOB, the food and service can always been counted on for an enjoyable experience. Abacus offers interesting specials which may include Soft Shell Crab and a variety of fish dishes. The interior decoration... More

I've been going to this place for years. The food has always been very good. I think, that they are the best in the area. Food is consistent in terms of quality and taste. Very nice atmosphere for in house dining. Take out is also very good.

Thankfully, Joe has taken over the reigns again of this very good gourmet chinese restaurant--it is a Lansdale Landmark and has been in operation for many years.
