The food was great and plenty of it. We only had the small portions and struggled to finish it all. The order process was smooth and we didn't have to wait more than 10-15 mins. Sure it's Americanised - if you want the real thing go to the Far East. Will be returning.

What a terrible place! First of all, it's dirty. Second of all its dirty, and tired of all the food is terrible. The "Sesame Chicken" was devoid of both chicken and sesame seeds. The lo mein noodles were overlooked spaghetti noodles., the garlic broccoli was sweetened, and the egg rolls were awful. The rice was a gooey solid block. No... More

With all the other good places to eat on the Island, there is no need to eat here. Below average food.

This is a small operation with husband & wife doing all the cooking and taking the orders (mainly take-out). We ordered for a family of 8 and I watched them cook the food fresh and prepare it for us to take out. The entire order was done correctly and tasted great. There were plenty of left-overs too for the next... More

Poor quality ingredients says it all. Don't waste your money on this take out establishment. Not recommended.

First of all this is carry out only and call a head to avoid a long wait. I think the portions were big. The food was good. As with all Chinese carry out places you have to find the dishes you enjoy the way they cook them . I would go more for the stir fry than the deep fried... More

The beef lo mein taste bad and the beef was fatty and I didn't eat it. Our crab Rangoons were good and the only thing... More

The proximity of the China 1 restaurant to our hotel was close. The food was just average, nothing spectacular. I've had much better quality Asian food but it was priced fairly.
