The food was great. The staff was very friendly and their kids helped out which was adorable. Not the fanciest place but it's good for families!

China House is a flash from the past. The decor is basic. The Cantonese food is very good and a request to avoid MSG was taken seriously.

Greasy but hot and fresh and fast every time. Their veggies always taste fresh and crispy and their rice tastes more homemade than most places. Their homemade duck sauce is really quite good. The chicken fingers are more like nuggets and are crispy and good without too much batter, but like all their fried stuff is on the greasy side.... More

I did takeout for a large group and got an assortment of items. They have all your standard Chinese food favorites and everyone enjoyed what they got. I find most Chinese food restaurants in New England have the same tasting items with small differences, an egg roll is usually the same no matter where you go, and that is true... More

Do not waste your money at this place. The food is awful and has no taste. The workers put zero effort into the food or the service. It's a hole in the wall. Food is very overpriced. Add $4.00 extra if you want pork in the rice. Extra cost for duck sauce too. We left there feeling upset and disappointed... More

I don't have the heart to rate anything "terrible," but this place has never, in its years of being open on the Vineyard, served good Chinese food. As a result, it's never crowded, however; so if all you want is to fill the hole in your belly on a busy day, go for it.

We were craving for something asian. We ordered the sesame beef and seafood dish. Both were good. Price of dishes are mostly in the low teens depending on what you order. Service is ok. Not bad...

Now it may have been because it was "off season" but odd was aweful. No beer or wine (seasonal license) but no polynesian drinks at all.

Not great, not bad. This is a typical type Chinese Restaurant. It's located right across from the Stop and Shop in Edgartown. I went there for take out after not having been there for a few years. The service was pleasant. The food was made quick. It was very typical American Chinese food. It hit the spot but didn't "wow"... More
