The service was very poor. We had to wait to order and wait a long time for our food. Also, I didn't care for my meal but my family thought theirs was OK. It was a very busy place.

Enjoy great Chinese food at the very tastefully decorated China City Restaurant in Oak Harbor, WA. Relax among the many statues that are placed around the dining room, and instantly you forget you are in Oak Harbor. They feature a wonderful selection of dinner entrees from side dishes to combination and family style dinners. The service is very fast and... More

We were happy to find a place still open on a Sunday night, but were even more happy that they had a big menu with lots of options, including healthy vegetarian options, well organized. Service was fast and friendly. Everything tasted great! The entrees are family style and three entrees with soup was plenty for all four of us with... More

Value: 3 Customer Service: 3 Food Quality: 3 I had to compare this with the rest of the Chinese Buffets I've been to throughout the US, not compared to other restaurants in Oak Harbor. This place is "just average". However if you compare this place to other restaurants in Oak Harbor alone.... You will find that this is above the... More

On a group trip on motorcycles and we stayed in the adjacent Best Western. It was decided we would go to this restaurant because of its proximity. Initially I wasn't too excited and went along. Well did I ever get a wake up call. The food was excellent. Service was excellent. Value was excellent. We ordered a dinner for 4... More

Very pretty restaurant. The interior is decorated very nicely. Located adjacent to the Best Western. The food was fresh and delivered quickly. The fried rice, sesame chicken, and chicken teriyaki were all good.

We have faithfully followed China City as it has moved through three locations, each of them an improvement on the previous establishment. With their recent move they have created a very pleasant restaurant with classic and sophisticated Asian decor. We live on the east coast, and rarely find the quality of Asian food available on the west coast. China City... More

Happy hour drinks and especially the appetizers, so worth it. Lettuce wraps, cocoanut shrimp, and bbq pork. And you're done.
