First started coming here in the 80s. Have moved so come less frequently. Consistently good, not overcooked chinese food. I would recommend for any Citrus Heights dwellers. Another little insider tip...I was overdue with both my pregnancies, came to Wonderful's and went into labor, whoop, whoop. Not planned but so funny to us!

A coworker recommended this place for their won ton soup and after trying this place once, we have been back 4 times in less than 3 weeks! the food is very good and fresh, and yes, their soup is very, very good! We always get the family style dinner plate that for $10.25 gives you a lot of food, including... More

I vouch for Wonderful Chinese Restaurant as the best restaurant in Sacramento! The food is excellent. People are lining up during lunch time. If one likes Chinese Salad, WONDERFUL CHINESE RESTAURANT prepares the best salad in the State of California. Wonderful is truly Wonderful!!!

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
