I live in OC and have been to A! several times. Owner is hard working and cares about your satisfaction. Reading some of the poor reviews it might be some folks should not eat out. I also inspect restaurants for a living and A! is is in line with most other restaurants. Anyone who claims they had "issues" with anything,... More

This place was dirty and the food was awful. Would not recommend this place. And we only did take out and I would not go back

We have been to this place many times over the years and we always loved it but never thought to review. We arrived Christmas evening and were happy they were open. The food was amazing good. Chicken wings had so much flavor and beef peppersteak was greàt. We also had shrimp /broccoli combo and fried dumplings all so very good.

There are not many choice for Chinese in Ocean City. When we found No. 1, and tried it, we found it just great. Their Egg Drop soup, shrimp egg rolls, shrimp toast, and especially their fantail shrimp appetizer are up there with the best. I don't know what people are complaining about but we have been getting take out here... More

My spouse and I are OCMD locals and have frequented #1 Chinese on several occasions and have always had a perfect meal each and every time. They offer a huge menu at average prices for the area. They do offer a small,but nice eat in area for families if you so choose. We have always done the take out and... More

We have bought one of our family shore dinners here for the last several years. Last year's experience was lackluster, but not enough to discourage us. This year has convinced us not to return next summer. We could not find the chicken inside the cooked pieces of breading disguised as General Tso's chicken. The egg rolls were overcooked and were...

I enjoy Chinese food and have a few restaurants in my home area that I enjoy, so I feel I am a good judge of whether a Chinese restaurant is worth visiting. Let's just say that No 1 Chinese Restaurant serves food that tastes like No 2. The beach is not the best place to go out for Chinese food.... More

I noticed the sign as I swung by on my way to go to Assateague and geocache and thought Chinese would be good. I stopped and got their take out menu and then ordered when I was ready - Shrimp with hot garlic sauce. I asked for extra spicey and got a bit of doubt, but told ten minutes. It... More
