Most of the people complaining about the Chinese food here is the ones who tend to order a box of fried noodles or fried rice, thinking that is how the Asian meals should be. That is not fair. Learn what to order (multiple dishes) and place them and share them with your family and friends. For 3-4 of us, we... More

Stopped in to pick up lunch. We ordered take out. Small area appeared fairly clean. We had shrimp fried rice,egg roll and spring roll. The spring roll was surprisingly good. My daughter didn't like her egg roll, she threw it out. The shrimp fried rice had no flavor. Only rice, think they use brown rice? few pieces of carrots,onions and... More

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...
