Not as good as it used to be.

This used to be pretty good but of the 2 times we ate here, the food just didn't have the good flavor it used to.

food was just ok...service was horrible, restaurant was very dated. I had purchased a restaurant.com gift certificate and decided to try this place out and they became rude when I showed them I wanted to use it.

China City is always a consistent place to eat whether in Oak Harbor or Freeland. Wait staff is good and environment conducive to a good eating.

I stopped by to grab dinner on the way to my hotel. They were fast, the food was great, and they have lumpia on the menu which was an unexpected bonus. I had everything I needed for a private feast in my hotel room. The restaurant was quiet so I'd like to go back sometime and eat in-house.

I really like their food. I always get the Hunan beef at a hotness of 3. The place doesn't look like much, on a budget? The food and the staff is the glue that holds that place together. I do recommend it a lot to others over China City because of flavor.

Good food and decent choice on the menu with different offers at happy hour too. Service for both the restaurant and takeaway is quick, but the sauces can be a bit too garlic-y at times. Reasonably priced, will go back
