We have been going to this diamond in the rough for quite some time and as I've seen lately less customers in the restaurant I decided to write a review. I'm surprised that customers would not be lined up to East China Inn and instead they would go to a chain Chinese restaurant like with frozen food that is one... More

I stop by here regularly while biking on the Fox River Trail. The owners and servers all Chinese. Very dependable good food. I recommend this place.

I love the Vegetable Delight and General Tso's Chicken. Can't say it's the friendliest place in the world, but welcoming enough. Just good Chinese food and reasonable prices.

I ordered a carry-out. I have ordered before but 1st time to reply about the nice people. I ordered a smoothie--what a refreshing way to cool a HOT day. These smoothies are made with fresh fruit-not a compote-almond milk and ice cubes. That's it-it is so fresh-tasting and so refreshing. I bought a cantaloupe one last week and a honey... More

East China Inn is our go to place for Chinese. The food is always fresh and served hot. They will adjust the heat level if you prefer something a bit more spicy. The hot and sour soup is outstanding as is the vegetarian delight. Never had a bad meal at any of their restaurants.

Whether we visit and dine in or have food delivered, the food is good, hot and tasty. I usually have chicken and broccoli, but I ask for brown sauce since I do not like the sauce that comes with it. Substitution is not an issue. The rest of my family orders beef fried rice, egg foo young and shrimp. They... More

East China has become a main stay for our family for several years. You get large portions for reasonable prices. The quality of the food is always top notch. Recommended for carry out or dine in.

When we want a good Chinese meal, we go to the East China Inn. It's menu is very diversified, tasty & reasonably priced. There is always plenty left over for me to take home for another meal. I am partial to the beef & peapods, but frankly there are so many selections, sometimes I just can't make up my mind.... More
