Inexpensive and plenty of food.

This is our go to Chinese restaurant when we want good Chinese. We usually get take out because it is fast, inexpensive, plentiful and good. I get Orange Shrimp and my husband gets General Tso's beef or chicken.

Good food, great value, best in McKinney area. It is consistent, I read another review that said they downgraded the chicken, or maybe other ingredients. I have not noticed that, but our favorite dishes are the Kung Pao Chicken and Jalapeno Chicken and we always as for white meat. I get mine extra spicey and they have never failed me.

My family LOVES this place. We go there about once a month. Fast service, good food, family place. This place was started and is run by a family who cooks everything fresh when ordered. GO!!!!!!

I have always loved this place. Ever since I found it about 8 years ago. However, I noticed their chicken and other ingredients are not the same anymore. I still like it better than any other chinese place in McKinney but I do have to say it's disappointing they downgraded to make more profit I suppose.

Food at China Sub is always tasty, hot and ready quick either to eat in or to go! All items on the menu are good I especially like the hot and sour soup, chicken with vegetables. Friendly service every time.

We have been here many times and am always pleased. They have the best Hot & Sour Soup I have ever tried. Nothing else comes close. My entire family and my friends always enjoy it. It is very reasonably priced. You must give it a try!

The last 2 times we've visited the China Sun I've been disappointed. Ordered cashew nut chicken, bland and the water chestnuts had a pickled flavor, the second time I ordered chicken moo goo gai pan. It was also flavorless. This has been our go to place for tasty, reasonably priced Chinese food. Guess we'll have to look around.

I didn't even know that China Sun was there when I was taken there by a friend. We went later in the evening. The food was hot with good portions at a good price. I am pretty sure that the owner took my order. My food was at my table quickly and tasted hot and fresh. I believe it had... More

I have been going here for 15+ years and although nothing super authentic or fancy but for as little as it costs, it is always hot, always filling and their customer service is always good. You can get main meal, rice and soup for under $8!! Don't go in expecting authentic because it's like Chinese fast food but it's good... More
