My family and I come here about once a week, we love the tangy sauce eggplant and the shredded Peking sauce pork. Their string beans with chicken and any of there shrimp dishes are also good. The sauces are lighter and the owner is very friendly. I highly recommend this place.

Son was hungry for Chinese food. So we settled for this place. Ordered cashew chicken, house special fried rice, and house special chow mein. The cashew chicken tastes good! Liked the sauce. Fried rice was bland but the shrimp was cooked perfect. And my chow mein had a burnt flavor and wasn't that good either. People were friendly though. Ok... More

Another great dinner at China Rim. Spicy chicken dish and an icy cold beer. Bargain pricing and super quality. The owners really take pride in their craft and take a personal interest in your dining experience. The restaurant is small, and in a strip mall so it's not super plush. But very clean with some Chinese decorations on the wall,... More

Great little family-owned restaurant. Don't let the non-descript strip mall location keep you from trying this place. Food tastes very fresh. Chicken with vegetables is one of our favorites; the chicken is so tender!

Close to my house and good food. Staff is friendly. Not usually very crowded but lots of people getting takeout when ever we are here.

Yes this is a "typical" strip mall kind of place with that atmosphere. However what makes this place worth the visit is the food and the service. It's almost always packed at lunch with repeat locals so that tells you something. There are lots of choices around so it's picked because it's good. I especially love their daily specials but...

Finally decided to try this place because my phone said it was good. I lived in China for a time so I can be finicky. One dish I always have to get is shredded Peking sauce pork, we also had the Orange beef, crab puffs and the outstanding dish of the evening: pan fried scallops with asparagus. Everything was fantastic,... More

We have been going to China Rim for about 15 years - it has NEVER disappointed. It is somewhat of a dive (always clean) with regard to the physical plant, so it's not the place to go to impress someone with the atmosphere. However, if consistently excellent Chinese food is what you want, you will find it here. The owners... More

Great place, simple strip mall location, but outstanding food, great friendly service. Love the General Tsao's chicken. Add a cold beer and you are all set.

I loooove this place...my family and I have been going here for years (since the 90's) and have never swayed. The owners are extremely friendly and prepare authentic Chinese for those in search of a delicious treat. My favorites: EVERYTHING...really!!! But, to be more specific, I never visit without getting the dumplings...I love the potstickers (made from scratch) and General... More
