Don't let the outside and the decor inside turn you off about this place. The food had such good flavor! The sauces are dark and rich with spice! If you don't like mushrooms just be sure to say no mushrooms in anything. The description just said mixed vegetables so I didn't bother to ask. But it had mushrooms. The food... More

If you like good authentic family style Chinese food, this is your place. Had the curried chicken, pot stickers, pork fried rice and beef chow Mein. The portions are big, hot and fast. The service was excellent. Don't let the looks outside turn you away. This place is good!

As she is a log time lunch customer, my wife introduced me to. While the atmosphere is minimalist / no frills, the service is quick and attentive. Food was delivered quit quickly, delicious and plentiful enough for leftovers. Place has become a favorite of mine, easily worth drive down town.

If you are into having a good Chinese meal, this is the place to try. The menu is very extensive, including duck, and everything that I have had has been excellent from their lunchtime specials right through to the duck dinner. My best recommendation is to go and try it for yourself and you will not be disappointed. Oh yes,... More

This place is awesome. The food is delicious. Went with my family and we all had different items from the menu and without exception everything was wonderful. My family had been there before and had laid a watch on the table to see how long it would take to receive our meals and it took SEVEN MINUTES! The service from... More

I have been enjoying China Chili for probably close to 10 years now. The food is always great and so is the service. All of the servers share tables so you are never waiting long for your food or drinks to come out. I love having business lunches here because the food comes out so fast!

Went to lunch with a friend and he picked the place. Food was excellent and the place is big enough for large groups. Portion size is good and I could not finish my plate. Prices are good as well.

As we were approaching the door of the restaurant two women came out with take-out and we asked them if the food was good......they emphatically said YES! They gave us some suggestions on what to order and our waitress was especially helpful too. We decided on the cream cheese crab wonton appetizers, Mongolian beef, Orange Chicken, Sizzling Seafood dish and... More

Saturday night and the place was packed. Ordered BBQ pork slices for a app. Then the chicken egg foo young and the chicken chow main. All food was as expected. Service was good for how busy they were. Good basic Chinese food.
