I hadn't been to the China Cafe in years. My prior experience was poor, but I'd heard it had improved. Unfortunately, it was just as bad as last time. First impression was a shoddy interior. Then the service was so slow I seriously thought about...leaving as I had only an hour for lunch. It took a long time just to get a menu. I had to hurry through the meal, but there was nothing to savor in any case. It wasn't terrible, just bland and edible. There are at least three Chinese/Asian restaurants in Castle Rock that are much better.More

Honestly, we were driving through on our way to Denver and needed a non fast food lunch where we could sit and eat inside. The people were nice and food came out in a timely manner but was pretty average. I ordered a chicken low-mein...and was pleased although it seemed extra greasy. The egg drop soup was spot on. My partner was not overly impressed with what they ordered and did not finish it. We tried boxing up and eating it later but it doesn't age well. Eat it immediately or don't eat it at all. Portions are large.More

My Husband has finally come home after 3 weeks in the hospital & it's our anniversary. We decided to try this place and what a colossal disappointment. We ordered the beef and scallops & I paid extra for additional scallops. Imagine my shock when I...counted a total of 4 scallops! I thought there must be some mistake so I called and was told that there are only 2 in a reg. order! then...we ate this totally tasteless dish. No flavor?!? $17.00 wasted. To top it all off - 1 soy sauce and 1 fortune cookie. Happy Anniversary to us!! Try someplace else...we'll never order here againMore

We have eaten here three times. Food is mediocre to good. Egg drop soup served at room temperature. Syrup consistency. Heard the server tell the kitchen that "it goes in the microwave." That is never a good sign. Sweet and sour pork has a rock...hard batter on it. The hot tea is very good! Fried rice is disappointing. No vegetables in it. No flavor. Just plain rice. The service is very good and friendly!More

This restaurant is under a new management and owned by a gentleman by the name of Tom. It is really fantastic. The food is delicious, you get a good size helping for your money and the staff that work there are the best I’ve seen....Just walking in the door you are treated in such a friendly way. Midway through the meal the owner Tom, Will stop by to say hello and he is so awesome. This restaurant, besides the food been so good, the people honestly do care for you. On Mother’s Day, Tom was walking around giving all the Lady patrons a beautiful glass rose and wishing them a happy Mother’s Day. He is quite an amazing man and it’s worth your while to listen to what he has to say because he has some awesome life experiences to share, And much wisdom. As I mentioned earlier the food is so good. If you want to have a really fun evening and not be treated like just another five and dime person, visit China Café you will thoroughly enjoy the experience and the delicious food!More

The egg rolls are incredible. Combination fried rice has so much protein and flavor. Cream cheese wontons had the perfect amount of sweetness. The staff is very efficient and friendly.

My husband and I ate in the restaurant one time and had take out another time while we stayed in Castle Rock. The food was delicious. We enjoyed eating in because the staff was friendly and the atmosphere was peaceful. Each time we had China...Cafe food, we had enough left over for another meal. That's two for the price of one. Great bargain for delicious food.More

New owners took over this aging restaurant several months ago and have done much to improve the food, decor, and overall experience. My husband and I have been a number of times since the change and have tried several different dishes, all fresh and delicious....I love the vietnamese egg rolls and have never been disappointed with any of the entrees. My husband is a fan of the thai options. Last night someone at another table ordered the Dungeness crab which he raved about. It was more food than we could eat, but did look delicious. The staff is super friendly, so it feels like a true family restaurant. It's great to finally have a good chinese/asian restaurant in Castle Rock.More

Twice now I have called in an order to China Cafe. I called ahead 40 minutes to pick up our food, only to find out that it is not ready. I was told by the young boy owners son " WE have other people waiting...for their food" Terrible customer service. Glad you business your business is booming! That you forgot how to treat the guest. Never will I go back and give them our business.More

Quiet, peaceful restaurant. Service is always good and their food is fresh and tasty. I find the food less salty than similar restaurants and their portions are generous. One tons are awesome along with their soups.

Enjoyed lunch at China Cafe, which included soup, an egg roll and main entree. The quality of each of our entree choices was very good, fresh and hot -- just great for a hot summer day when you don't want to cook at home. We...had Happy Family and Sesame Chicken -- nice veggies and presentation on the plate. There were also white rice, brown rice and fried rice. The fried rice was good but not great. Lunch was $8.25 each. Overall, we enjoyed the lunch very much and would go again.More

We love this restaurant and decided to try their delivery service (we are less than 3 miles from there which fits their criteria). When we ordered, we were told it would be 45 minutes. After 1 hour we called and were told that it was...just coming up. We live about 5-8 minutes away. After 15 minutes, called again. Were told our food was just being packaged and the driver would be on his way. Another 15 minutes and no food delivery. Called AGAIN! Were told he left with 3 orders and ours was supposed to be delivered first. No such luck! We will continue to eat there but never order delivery.More
