I made the mistake of trying China Hill on a Friday evening. The place is obviously popular, and I had heard good things about it. I was getting takeout dinner, to drive home half an hour away. I ordered crab rangoon appetizer and a couple of main dishes, and sat in the lobby, in the chairs right in front of... More

The food was what I expect from a Chinese place. Nothing to special but it was tasty and filling. They won some award for their Bloody Mary's... I tried one and was not impressed. Service was ok.

Nasty owner, was short with me when I asked about the buffet. Food was poor quality. This is the ONLY time that we have ever thrown out our Chinese food leftovers. We used to look forward to our visits to China Hill, never again.

I have been here several times, and it is good, but it is typical Chinese food. It is a favorite with locals and always seems to be fairly busy.

I had scallops w/vegetables. Didn't expect too many scallops, but there was a lot, and not those tiny ones, and a big bowl of rice. I very rarely take a doggie bag, but this time I did. There was enough for a second meal,a big second meal . Husband had duck with pork and ham, and his was huge also.... More

Food was buffet - plenty - hot - $13.95 - dessert was dry but I don't usually eat it and the ice cream was good. Average buffet - no one got sick.

I have only eaten inside one time and the atmosphere was average for Maine. I really like the broccoli tofu and the pineapple chicken is pretty good. Buffet has a nice selection although I haven't eaten off it.

Thank Keith H
