Excellent Chinese food, sit-down or take out! Never had a bad meal here. Fast and they always get your order right.

My husband and I have both been to China so we know what real Chinese food tastes like. We are really picky about where we eat Chinese because so often Chinese restuarants in the U.S. tend to Americanize their food. Well, here it tastes about as close to "real" Chinese food as we have found anywhere. We LOVE this place!... More

I live in the Tennessee Tri Cities area and we drive about 20 miles to eat at this Chinese restaurant whenever we want Chinese food. The servings are plentiful,quality of food and price are both excellent.Very clean also.Family owned,you can tell they take pride in what they do. Highly recommend if you are in the area

I am from Greeneville, and China Chef is one of my favorite restaurants to eat at. Their egg-rolls are great and they do not taste "cheap" like some other Asian restaurants in Greeneville. I normally order Mongolian Beef or Chicken, a large order of plain Lo Mein noodles and a couple egg rolls with a sweet tea to drink. The... More

I am a local and this is the best traditional Chinese take out in Greeneville. Fast, hot food and consistently prepared.

Sure, the elitists would go to a restaurant like this and start picking it apart, saying things like "the spices were too bland (of course that's a completely subjective opinion being based on only one meal there)," or "the soup is too thick (again based on a single experience)," or "they don't have a maitre d' who seats you and...

We've been eating at the China Chef for many years now. The owners are very nice people who work very hard to provide exceptional customer service. The food is perhaps not "the best Chinese food in 300 miles"...but. I can truthfully say after many years of eating Chinese food of many types, both domestically and internationally, it rates up there... More

Based on the one other Tripadvisor review which gave this restaurant five stars and the comment ,"best chinese restaurant within 300 miles" when we recently visited Greeneville, Tennessee, we searched this restaurant out. Here's what we found: 1. A tiny strip mall restaurant off the Andrew Johnson Highway next to JC Penny's and across from Belk's. I think the name... More

China chef is by far the best Chinese food you're going to find in east Tennessee. People around here like going to the local buffets and like to say that china chef is too expensive, but i disagree. the food quality at the buffet places is just deplorable, whereas the food at china chef is truly top notch.
