to me this is just what you would expect at a regular Chinese restaurant - my friend likes it here but he also likes my favorite Chinese restaurant as well. this is good for change.

For decades wonderful chinese For For decades Wonderful Chinese restaurant truly was. However, the last three times I've been there during the past year have been sorely disappointing. The food is still good but certainly not the best, nor as good as it used to be. The service has really gone down hill. It used to courteous and fast. Now... More

This restaurant is very close to my home, so I have been here a number of times. The menu is extensive, but the quality is inconsistent...lunch is very economical for the amount of food served...too oily for my taste, but is okay. I prefer more spicy flavors...

I've been getting food from Wonderful for decades. I usually get it to go, but it's nice to eat there as well. Their Spicy Shrimp and Chow Fun dishes are outstanding. This is a good, solid, family-run business with seriously delicious food that never disappoints.

We hadn't been here in years, so with a hankering for Chinese food we thought we'd give it a try. The chicken chow mein arrived quickly, but was really salty. We ordered three other dishes also too salty for our taste. Service was quick and the restaurant was clean.

I've been going to Wonderful Chinese for years and the restaurant has been very special to both my wife and I. We recently purchased our first home in the area and thought it would be awesome to have it be a a regular spot for us since we were now locals. The good - the food has been consistent The... More

Wonderful Chinese food has been at Sylvan corners as long as I can remember. I really enjoy their food. It's fresh, flavorful, and reasonably priced. My wife will only eat their Cashew Shrimp - it's her favorite and they make it the best.

We went there last night and had a delicious meal. Our daughter just moved into that area and we decided to try something close by, glad we did. The cheese wontons, orange chicken, honey walnut prawns were some of the best I've ever had! The service was quick and friendly. Took the take out menu as we were leaving too.... More

Good food but service is just ok. It almost always feels as if they are rushing you out and not very personable.
