The China Rose not only has great food and large portions. You will need to take home a doggie bag for this one. :) It has a very romantic setting and a great place to go for an anniversary.

Not consistent. One time is awesome the next time it's barely edible. Hit or miss. We normally just get Thai. The restaurant in general needs a good cleaning and to be updated. Staff is nice.

I visit China Rose for lunch when I'm in Truro with my mother. It's a nice break from shopping, and the people who work there are quite friendly and casual. The lunch special is always tasty, and hot. It seems like it's the NS version of Chinese food similar to the others in town - but probably a little better... More
