“Best of area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

There is a lot "just sugar pile" Chinese restaurants in our area. (Wok n roll BEING the WORST offender) but at China eatery you can get pretty good american Chinese food. They do have the PU PU platter items for THOSE people but you can also get chicken, beef ,pork and seafood dishes with still green broccoli in it. The ambiance is very simple. it is mostly a take out place but they do have some parking spaces. We go about once a month for the all day luncheon specials.

“Terrific take out in OOB!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

Decided to have take out Chinese while visiting family. Placed the phone order and was told 15 minutes. Walked in at 14 minutes to find business brisk, help friendly and adequate, and watched 2 bags come out of the kitchen. One was my purchase, fresh and ready. Once open, the food was a very pleasant surprise. The hot and sour soup I found to be one of the best I've had in Maine. The egg rolls were light, cooked perfectly, and very flavorful. The side of pork fried rice was also fresh. Both entrees of General Tso's chicken and Triple delight were fresh, veggies "el dente", and sauces above average. Definitely going back!

“Pleasantly surprised!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

I am new to Old Orchard Beach and the best part of being in new to a place is getting to try all the restaurants in my new town. I had seen the China Eatery place in my travels around town and decided to check it out. I ordered the dinner combo of Sweet and Sour Chicken which included pork fried rice, an eggroll and choice of soup. I got the Wonton soup. All of the meal was very good. I will definitely order again from the China Eatery.The portions were a little smaller than what I am used to, but it did fill me up.The prices are very reasonable. All in all, I was pleasantly surprised by this restaurant.

“Plenty and Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

If you enjoy authentic Chinese food, this restaurant will provide you with an excellent experience. The food is reasonable in cost and plenty in volume. There is something for every taste - sweet, sour, spicy, mild, etc. A great family restaurant.
