Good Chinese at Good Price

In many ways, this restaurant is a typical Chinese take-out. You'll find the regular menu of kung-pao chicken, lo-mein, etc. You can order at the counter and eat there. The restaurant looks very boring but there are several tables. Most people seem to do take-out. I first went here based on... read more

Got a take out from China Café, the place was busy, I thought it must be good. I will be honest, I wasn’t impressed. I got the Chicken and Broccoli. It smelled better than it tasted. I thought it was bland. It didn’t have much flavor to it. The sauce was watery. I didn’t feel like I was eating Chinese... More

I've never eaten their but get carryout occasionally when I'm playing trivia next door at Backyard Grill & Bar and feel like something different than what Backyard offers. It is better than average Chinese food. The usual, Szechuan, Hunan appetizers and entrees.

China Cafe has the best Chinese food in Chantilly. Its like Mom's home cooking (if your mom was Chinese)! I've been going there for 20 years. Great friendly service, excellent food, very reasonable prices. It is very popular for carry-out, but you can eat in, too. It is the opposite of fancy, but its clean and delicious. I highly recommend... More

I have been coming to this place for a quick Chinese meal since 1996. As of this spring their quality went downhill and on multiple occasions I have gotten over salted and under cooked dishes. Looks like I'll have to find another place...

Food's good, reasonable, and plentiful. The servers are polite and good natured, too, and no one will force you to use chopsticks.

Excellent food, freshly prepared to order. Very inexpensive and generous portions. Drab place, take out if you can.

A take away (or basic “eat in” place” recommended by two of the nearby hotels - Wingate and Fairfield Inn. Had a wide variety on the menu. We would go there for take-away arriving from Europe and wanting to veg out in the room. Went three times over the years and it was always good. You can also eat there,... More
