We were staying 2.5 miles away from the restraunt. They only deliver within a 5 mile radius. The food was warm and delicious! I recommend the black pepper chicken it was amazing!

Chinese food that comes for delivery is usually a let down. Not from here! Food arrived hot, wontons were still crispy and delivery guy was very friendly. Compared to other places around town this is by far the best food for the best price that I've found! Try the cheese wontons!!!!! Yum!

Went and go chowmein, fried rice and lomein. Fried rice was boring. No vegetables, chowmein was ok average. Not bad not great. Lomein was ok no vegetables again. Taste was strong. Probably won't go back.

Best sesame chicken and fried rice I've ever had. Don't waste your money on the big franchise place. East China has much better food, and more of it for less money! Lunch specials are great.

We've order food for delivery frequently and it's the best we've had! Favorites are seafood delight, sesame shrimp And the Singapore chow mei fun! Always fresh and hot. Teriyaki beef and chicken appetizers are wonderful. Tender tasty meat! Usually have plenty of leftovers that reheat great.

We get take out at least once a week from East China. The food is great and the ingredients are always very fresh. They don't over cook the vegetables as is often the case with other Chinese restaurants. The owners always have a smile for their customers.

My favorite Chinese food place. I frequently do carry-out and they are always smiling and cheerful. Great quality and large portions-- usually get 2-3 meals out of it.
