We have been having a problem with the local Chinese restaurants changing their food to be less than authentic. Chef Li's was great. Their fried rice was very good. We are in the restaurant, which was very clean. The hostess was very friendly and the food was not only delicious, but very fast. Will definitely drive longer to go there... More

Take out only. They were fast and efficient in processing our order and even offered us free drink or soup while we waited. Typical menu and very convenient to Hampton, but nothing out of the ordinary.

I love Chinese food and this is the best in Tampa bay. Always fresh and consistent it really is better for take out. Wonton soup is great ribs are food. All the other dishes come out like you would expect.

Over the years Chinese has been pretty middle of the road for me - no real standouts good or bad. But Chef Li is a standout. Hands down the best Chinese food I've ever had!

Traveled the distance for good Chinese food, and finally found one. Been going for past year, food always fresh and tasty, staff is friendly. Highly recommend it!

The restaurant itself is small and somewhat primitive but the food is consistently good and reasonably priced. Give it a try.

Each time I ordered from them I placed an order for delivery. First off, the delivery was super fast and the food was always fresh!

Small, family owned restaurant with four tables that's big on flavorful food. Ordered take out from here and everything was really good. General Tso's chicken, pork fried rice, beef with broccoli and the egg roll were all fresh and delicious (pics attached). Definitely recommend and will return.

We tried this place based on a friends tip. We are glad we did. Excellent white meat chicken and the vegetables were very fresh. This place is a nice little hidden gem. I think we will be back!

I had heard great things about this place. Ok first of all their online menu is awful. So we drove there and their paper menus were great. Waited 10-15 min which is not too bad on a weekend. So, pork fried rice was dry, the chicken in the cashew chicken was some of the toughest to date, the lo mein... More
