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. The food is very consistent each time you're there, and Joe makes it fun with his jokes about the specials for the day! If there is one area on which they can improve,... More

I really enjoy going to Abacus and taking out. I love Chinese food and out of all of the restaurants in the area, I think they serve the best.

I was up in the old neighborhood over the weekend, and thought I would check out Abacus. When my family first moved to the Lansdale area in 1986, it was one of a handful of places to eat in greater Lansdale. 25+ years later, it endures. The menu consists of traditional Chinese-American dishes, many of which you are already familiar... More

I placed a take out order yesterday, picked it up at 3PM. went home to eat. I opened the containers, and it was obvious this food (General Chicken, Pork Fried Rice) had been sitting around for awhile. I had taken my son for lunch last month and the food was fresh and delicious, and I had the General Tso then... More

This is an okay neighborhood Chinese restaurant. My grandkids like the wonton soup and I particularly like their eggplant.

Spent over $55 on take-out and didn't get what I ordered and what I got was bland and tasteless. It's fast food Chinese. The sauces are watery and the stir fry had large chunks of end cut zucchini, there were no Jillian peppers or onions. Buy a sharp knife and a Chinese cook book.

A surprisingly good restaurant in a very plain location. Once inside, the atmosphere is pleasant, with white paper lanterns and an enormous decorative fish tank. Joe, the host, is always welcoming. The food is a tad more expensive than store-front Chinese, but it is much better than the usual. On a recent visit, the only disappointment was an eggplant side... More

Abacus is one of two upscale Chinese restaurants in Lansdale, the other being Yantze, as the west end of town. Both are owned by the same family and have virtually identical menus and ambience. Abacus is a pleasure, a quiet oasis tucked into a busy strip mall near North Penn High School. It's a small place, beautifully decorated and featuring... More

It is good but not the best chinese out there. I think the choices are the same as any other chinese and there are other just as good but not as expensive.
