Very good service - Food not so Great

Visited the China Light for lunch while I was working in Port Allegheny. I ordered off of the lunch menu, and had a General Tso's Chicken. I was asked to be seated and the lady who worked there provided great table service. The food came out quickly and was warm right from the kitchen. The... read more

I ordered takeout from here, General Tso's Chicken, some Crab Rangoon, and an egg roll. Nothing tasted right, and it was all a little too greasy. At this point I think we all know when we are eating not good Chinese right? So it was all kinda blah and I never ordered here again.

We stopped here after 9:00pm one night when the rest of the town was pretty much closed up. We appreciated the family cooking our order fresh. It hit the spot!

We used to love this place and it was a great fix close to home. The last few times, the service has been very bad and the food just isn't the same. I may try again but right now, I'm just a bit dissapointed.

We were back to China Light several weeks and were surprised to find they no longer offer the buffet. Our waitress saw the disappointment on our faces until she handed us the new and IMPROVED menu.
