We were both satisfied we had the sesame chicken and empress chicken. Both were very good. We haven't had anything we didn't like, and we always have good service. Great lunch spot for the wife and I.

Took wife and son to lunch while he was in town. We go here Witte often and the food is always excellent!!! Lunch is an especially good value. You get entree and fried or steamed rice, soup (egg drop our hot&sour), an eggroll, and a crab Rangoon for about $7.00. fast Service at lunch time to. Would highly recommend.

The reviews I read about this being great food were on spot. I thoroughly enjoyed the food and loved the little neighborhood restaurant. If I lived in the neighborhood, I'd be a "regular". I loved the red lantern light fixtures. There was the oddity of not giving us our actual ticket. I would have given this an excellent rating but... More

Only place I go for Chinese and it never disappoints! Seriously so good. And everyone, get their pot stickers. They're the best.

I ordered the hot braised chicken and an order of egg rolls. I only had to wait 10 minutes after placing my order before it was done. Food is very fresh and tasty. I have never had a bad meal here. And one of the biggest positive is the fact that I have never had them forget something from my... More

Ting's is a great choice for quick Chinese food that's always outstanding. Most people get their food to go, but the restaurant is nice too. Good service and reasonable prices. Definitely recommend this place either way!

This visit was lunch with my parents. Two of us had the best sweet and sour chicken ever!! It was super fresh and not drowned in sauce so not sickly sweet like some places are prone to. My mother had chicken with snow peas which she said was excellent an my dad had a pork dish which we requested to... More

Good selection, good prices, good food. Most authentic tasting in the local area. Small place, fills up on Friday and Saturday nights. They do lots of take out as well.

Our first visit was an evening meal. Mildly disappointed dinners don't come with a rangoon or spring roll or egg roll. We ordered potstickers and rangoons for appetizers. The potstickers were good, the rangoons were very good. We ordered Happy Family and Lemon Chicken. Both were excellent. Our bowl of steamed rice, was cold. I will be back for lunch,... More

We love their lunch. You get an appetizer, soup and entree at a reasonable price. The dinner menu is the same but you pay for the appetizer and soup and the entree is HUGE, enough for 2 people especially if you get an appetizer or soup.
