This is one of those delightful "hole-in-the-wall" restaurants that I really love to find. The food is good the proportions are huge, the price is right, and it is a small family operation with friendly attentive staff. The dining area is small and simple, but...adequate. We tried to order a large soup for the three of us, but the server told us all we needed was the small, and she was right, their small bowl would be an extra-large at most other places, and it was ves very tasty.More

We were looking for a new Chinese Food place as our existing place was going down hill. A quick search led us to Main Choice! We tried to arrange delivery on-line... BIG mistake! The website said that delivery was not available to our address -...strange since we lived so close. We ordered on-line and I picked it up. The menus at the restaurant clearly state "10% off pick up orders...". Well... not if you order on-line! The discount you would get for phoning in the order is given to the website provider as a commission! (I can't help but wonder how many other restaurants websites do this???) Be that as it may the lady at the restaurant was super apologetic! She gave me 5% off for the confusion, and she threw in an order of 8 egg rolls for my trouble! She gave me some extra menus and told us that they DO deliver to my address, it is a website problem - just call next time and no problem! Now to the food! WOW! Everything was really good! Especially the chicken! Our previous place the quality of the chicken had been going down hill. But with Main Choice this is first quality only! We really enjoyed our food! Now all that good food is going to cost you a little more. And with the quality level here, we did NOT mind at all! Well done, we will be back! Note: While "dine in" is available, there are only six or so tables. My guess is that the majority of the business is takeout.More

The food quality was very good. They do not cover the food with extra sauces or sugar. The chicken was tender and flavourful. You had the sense that you were getting a basic and nutritious meal. I will be back when in the area.

We have eaten here twice and found the food was average and OK but nothing above average at a good price. The beef chop suey was very good and the chow mein is not greasy but only average and a little dry. I have had...better spring rolls as these were very greasy and very little filling. The sweet and sour is a little different, small portion and had a vinegar after taste. The portions are on the small side but not small. I would like to give them a higher comment but we have had better at other locations and it seems only average. The service is good but not really sure we would return as it is only average and we could get this anywhere.More

I had the wor won ton soup and singapore style noodles. It was great. The people there are very friendly, and were willing to adjust the food for my dietary needs.

If you're not necessarily impressed by authentic decor, but good food, this is definitely the place. It's good quality "American style" Chinese Food. If you're a fan of that genre of Asian Cookery, you must try this place. It's freshly made, well served food delivered...in a timely manner by an efficient and friendly hostess. In the end, for everyday dining, what more could you possibly want?More
