Solid Lunch Spot

Been going here for years. Lunch buffet is tasty and consistent. Great deal for the money. Everything tastes good if not a bit similar, but it fills the gut and is flavorful. All you can eat for 6.95! Fried chicken is excellent.

China Bistro has been our family favorite for many years. We were in for a surprise recently when we went in for a late supper after a school concert at our granddaughter's school. My daughter had called ahead, because we were just going to squeak by getting there before 9:00pm. The place had been transformed completely into a sleek, modern... More

Mongolian beef was EXCELLENT! Unfortunately, shrimp in lobster sauce didn't have water chestnuts and had a TON of bamboo shoots. And you can't ask for it without (I don't think so, anyway...hmmm, much check...) Veggie chow mein excellent. Won ton soup very good. Chix fried rice very good. One thing, though-you know how you can get some of those little... More

My parents have been going here since they opened. I never thought to write about them, but if you have been searching for great Chinese food, this is the place. The War Won Ton soup is a favorite and so is the Chicken Chop Suey, Orange Chicken Peel, Sweet and Sour Pork, Pea Pod Beef, Egg Foo Young and pretty... More

Sorry but this place has poor food. I had to go there for a birthday party but I usually avoid this place. Food is mostly tasteless and service was slow.

Since moving to Fullerton a year ago, we have not stopped coming. The food is great and fresh. Schezwan wontons are really good. The owner takes care of you if you are not satisfied with anything - she is always asking if you need anything.

Party of four - two were happy with food and two were not. Orange chicken tough, chewy and lacking flavor. Servers approach was rather abrupt. She approached our table as all business, not accomodating at all.

Your basic American Chinese Take out food. Good enough, but nothing surprising or especially pleasing about it. The fortune cookies were all broken.

When I saw that Olivia's Bistro was opening up a second location in Fullerton, I was thrilled. Honestly, I had never been to the location on Imperial and Euclid, but I had read stellar reviews on Yelp, and was excited to dine at their new digs. :) My boyfriend and I drove past this plaza three or four times during...

Been coming here & ordering take-out for over 10 years. Always consistently excellent. Friendly, attentive and efficient staff seems vey happy to dispense personal service to regulars. Too many great dishes to single anything out. Menu is extensive so we have still not tried everything. But we will!
