Family-cooked Chinese food

This place is like family-cooked Chinese food and they have authentic Chinese food. They have delivery and takeout. It is the best Chinese food in Canton area. I love their fishball soup and eggplant.

We decided to split three meals and two soups among 4 people. We asked for white and fried rice. We were told fried rice was standard with the meals. However, when we arrived at home, there was no fried rice, only white. The soup was okay, nothing to rave about. We had 2 chicken dinners and 1 beef dinners. I... More

This is by far the best, most authentic Chinese and Asian food you're going to find...if you order from the Dine-In menu. The menu you want is usually set on the tables, and is a bound red, Chinese menu. Usually I see only Chinese families eating in, while white people do the carry out (which is on a single piece...

My son had read about a Chinese restaurant in the metro Detroit area that was considered one of the best in the country. I was skeptical of such a claim, but decided to go along with this to see if it was true. The drive from where we live to the restaurant was about 40 minutes. The restaurant is located... More

I'm so happy this place is close to our home. I grew up in New York, where Chinese food seems VERY different compared to here. This place is very close to what I remember as a child. Their string beans are great, too.

You don't come here for the décor. Located near a gas station, Best China is one of the most authentic Chinese food places in the Canton, MI, area. I was first introduced to the place many years ago by Chinese friends. At the time, the owner did not speak any English and the menu was in Chinese with poor English... More

The uninviting dining area is clearly an afterthought. Obviously this place is basically a carry-out restaurant. The room looks like a break room for the employees. A TV was blaring a Chinese language soap opera which the staff enjoyed while they ate. The decor is almost non-existent, the lighting harsh. The few tables have no salt, pepper, soy sauce, or...

If I ever did find the "Best" Chines restaurant I guess I would never go anywhere else. I personally do not think this place is the best. BUT, it is good and I would eat there again. Everyone has their own idea of what the best Chinese food should taste like. Based on how popular this place is, many people... More

I love Chinese food, but too many of the restaurants serve what I would call mess hall "slop." Not Best China. The Crab Wontons are one of my favorites. Portions are a good size. My husband and I split a single Almond Boneless Chicken dinner. We get carryout, but there is a small seating area. Mighty tasty and well prepared... More

We really enjoyed the food. Had the Lo Mein, General Tso's chicken and a noodle dish. All were fresh and tasty. The Generals Chicken had nice chunks of meat and lighter breading (versus some that is fried breading and little meat). Good carry out option for the area. It is located in a very ugly strip mall. Would definitely recommend.
