MSG Anyone?

My colleagues and I were bloated within 10 minutes of eating - apparently from the MSG. The food was fine, but the swollen aftermath made us all pay!

My husband and I spent all day traveling and stopped here for dinner. The staff was welcoming, we got a nice little table by the windows and we had hot tea served to us without hesitation. We got dumplings for appetizers and the hunan sauce was some of the best I've ever had (after trips to Japan and Thailand I... More

We stopped by before going to a movie. We both had chicken dishes and both thought our tastebuds were dead. The food was not disgusting, but it was truly tasteless. I would rather just have eaten cardboard. It was cheap, but this is no excuse for this type of food. It wasn't just bland, it really had flavor at all.... More

I have seen food dropped on the floor and served. I see from the other reviews that it has not gotten any better. If you saw the food before it was cooked you wouldn't eat it. It is not any better after it is cooked. Very low hygiene practices.

CK was my favorite restaurant for years. It's been sliding down for the last few years, but the last straw was our latest carryout order. I don't know what mystery meat passed for 'chicken breast' back in that kitchen, but it was disgusting. Chewy, gristly, completely inedible. We spent over $50 on a date-night-at-home treat and it was a huge... More

My husband And I frequent the china kitchen because their human chicken is the best around. It is always hot and delicious! The lunch special is a fantastic deal. We have a hard time easting Chinese food anywhere else because we prefer china kitchen over all other choices!!!!

Ive been a native for over 25 years, the China Kitchen is ran by a great couple, that said, the place is a dirty "restrooms and restroom doors" and cold. That said, the food used to be exceptional, now its just the typical, not quite fast food, but really not much less than fast food Chinese. The sushi bar, that's... More

This place used to be great. It used to have sushi and quality food but now they no longer have sushi and their food is either hit our miss on the good factor. We only go here as a last resort.
