We decided to go to the China House this evening with long time friends for dinner. The food is consistently good and the staff friendly. The combo plates offer an excellent variety at very reasonable prices. We find that we are never rushed and they allow us plenty of time to just visit.

Stopped by for lunch. Many people in my group had raved about the place prior. I was less than impressed by the dirty tables, poor service, and bland food. I've been there twice, and will likely not go again.

Our last trip to China House was a little disappointing and I downgraded them from a 5 to a 4. But our son was visiting and he loves Chinese food, and my spouse suggested China House as a good alternative to the Mandarin, which we love, but whose prices have risen much too high on a Sunday. Beside which, I... More

We have wanted to stop here when we visit Cambridge but never got around to it. This trip we stopped by for dinner and am glad we did. China House is a very large restaurant good for big groups or for just us couples. Food is very very fresh and cooked the traditional Chinese way. Service is very attentive and... More

Out for some shopping. My spouse wanted to eat out, and decided on China House, a perennial favourite. We entered, and I was surprised by the scarcity of patrons, as it was still week-day lunch time. After about 5 minutes of waiting, we were greeted by a server who was not our usual one. She seated us and gave us... More

We have been going to the China House for several years. My Wife suggested going today for Mother's Day, and while we expected it to be packed, and it was, they sat us immediately. Even though the waitresses were hustling today, ours was still friendly, and we felt the service was very good. The food at the China House is... More

I've been to China house many time to get take out when I'm in the mood for Chinese food. The food quality is usually very good but I'm starting to find the prices are climbing a little high. For instance tonight I ordered some special fried rice, some beef egg foo young, an order of barbecued spare ribs and some... More

Stayed next door on business and ate here twice. Greasy, yet tasty, food with moderate variety. Server was very nice and let me get on with my mea . I was the only person there one night, an the second party the next night. Lots of deep fried food, but very few fresh options that I could see.

Went there at 9 on Friday night --- it was closing at 10. Only one other couple there and we figured there might be something wrong with the place. We were totally wrong! The service was fast, efficient and the food was great! Not only was it fairly priced, the serving size was large and the food tasted wonderful. We... More
