The food here is just ok. Nothing exceptional, but the atmosphere is top notch for the most stereotypical old Chinese restaurant style. I love the dragon on the wall. All in all its not bad, the staff is excellent.

We went to China Doll on New Years Eve on advise of a friend. We should have walked out as soon as we walked in but thought we would give it a try anyway. The carpet was filthy, the bench to sit and wait on needed repair currently patched with tape. Then the food, small amount compared to other Chinese... More

Both the environment and food are throwbacks to the '50s (although the restaurant opened in the '60s...time passed slowly in downtown Everett, I suppose.) Having parked our car at the event center, where my son and I were attending an event and cold and hungry, we decided to grab the nearest venue, and the China Doll is directly across the... More

Ordered take-out. The food was alright. Pretty typical Chinese food. The wontons were nothing like I'm used to, not to my liking, but not bad. The general tso's chicken was pretty good. We will continue to look for a better Chinese restaurant.

We had just watched a play (Mary Poppins) at the Everett Village Theater and were looking for a Chinese Restaurant to eat at for dinner, so put information in our GPS and feel very lucky to have found this place! It certainly doesn't look that great from the outside, but oh my! Such friendly service and affordable, delicious food! We... More

What you might call a "hole in the wall" location. Clean, friendly, and nostalgic setting. We had a large variety of food and we're happy with the quality, taste and portions. There seems to always be some one to open and greet you at the door with a smile. That is a great form of service that is rare and... More

The Northwest seems to mostly have Mandarin style Chinese food. This restaurant is Cantonese style which is very different with very specific recipes without deviation. I grew up on this style of Chinese food and love it! If you've never had Cantonese style it's worth trying. Lots of vegetables in their dishes and doesn't seem to use a lot of... More
