“Good Chinese”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2011

Good Chinese food. Although the local interpretation of 'Spicy Food' is pretty tame.

“Local Gem- Great Chinese and Friendly Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2008

We have been coming to Chun Hing for over 20 years and it is still our local favorite. This family run restaurant is extremely friendly. If you are a regular customer, they will get to know you and remember your favorite dishes. It is BYOB., though often the owner offers you a bottle of beer on the house. I am not sure if this courtesy is offered to all the customers or just the regulars.

The restaurant is tucked away in a corner of the Pathmark Shopping Center on Monument Road, just east of the new Target shopping center on City Ave. It is a hidden gem but well known to the locals. If you are visiting the area and staying at the Crowne Plaza Main Line check this place out!

On the menu you'll find all the basics though they do specialize in Szechuan cuisine and they will make the items more or less spicy to your taste. Shrimp egg rolls, meat dumplings, wonton soup are all excellent. I love the "squid five spicy taste" which is a Chinese version of calamari , fried crisp, very salty and spicy, and served with shredded lettuce and scallions. Other people swear by the Mr. Sherman shrimp in garlic sauce (you peel em). Singapore noodles are also a favorite.

Take a look at the specials posted in the entryway as you walk in. I like the fish in black bean sauce and mussles with garlic and noodles.

If there is something you particularly ilke to eat but don't see it on the menu, ask if they can make it for you. They are very accomodating.

Highly recommended.
