Great place to get orange chicken. Service is very good. Egg rolls were crisp and tasty. Beverages from bar were good too.

Excellent food and service. Can get very busy but a reservation on the weekend speeds that up. People are very friendly . I love Chinese and I thought it was great. My husband is very fussy on Chinese food and he was impressed.

4 of us went to China Chili on Christmas Day. Seems many others had the same idea! It's a big restaurant jam-packed with tables -- pretty standard fare, and nothing fancy about it. Our waitress was pleasant and the restaurant kitchen and staff were efficient -- order taken, food brought to the table, empty plates cleared away. We ordered a... More

I never would have thought to try out this restaurant just driving by it as the building doesn't exactly look wonderful and sometimes you don't really know about random Chinese food places. One of my friends asked if I would like to meet her there and I'll try anything once so I said yes. Boy was I pleasantly surprised! I... More

My GPS directed me here when I typed in "Chinese restaurants." The sign says fine dining, but it is not. I had the Orange chicken and frankly have had better at mall food courts. Was only visiting Phoenix so no chance of me going back again. But if I did have the chance I would not.

This was our first time to China Chili and it was a great experience. We had a family style dinner for 4 people and it was more than we could eat. All the dishes were outstanding and I would recommend the restaurant for the authentic Chinese food. The service was great and everyone were really friendly. Two of our party... More

China Chili is a popular lunch spot for the downtown business and government crowd. Its popularity is attributable mainly to the rapid service and the reasonable prices: we waited less than five minutes for our dishes to arrive at the table and paid about $20 for two. The food itself is not memorable. This is not to suggest that the... More

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.
