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.

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.

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

I used to love China Sun! We enjoyed the food and it was always prepared quickly. However the last couple of visits have left our taste buds disappointed. Tonight's order was not tasty at all. And then to top it off, my son had a hair in his sweet and sour chicken. When I called to tell them they were... More

We got takeout from here tonight based on the high reviews of other contributors. OVERRATED!!!!! We ordered the hot and sour soup, General Tso's Chicken, Chicken Lo Mein and Mongolian Beef. Each looked incredibly UNappetizing and none of the meat tasted "real." Overall, so disappointing. Wish everything had tasted and looked more appetizing.
