The close proximity to my home made Number 1 Chinese an option for take out recently. While it certainly is not the best Chinese option locally, it also is not the worst. The pricing and the amount of food is good for Chinese;however, the overall taste isn't on par with some Chinese restaurants in Lancaster. I had my usual Roast... More

Don't be put off it's simple no frills presentation but judge simply on the great tasting food. Really large portions with deep flavor profiles. A wide variety of options. I can't say enough about how much we love this food.

Where I'm from there was a Chinese place called number two, funny I know but this number one I thought would be better having the name it does. False!! Food was horrible and will not be ordering from here again!

Chicken and Broc.Stir fry is NOT overcooked! Vegetables are slightly crisp and very fresh. They deliver to local neighborhoods. Prompt service! Have NEVER had a disappointing take out meal. Inside dining has no atmosphere and appears to be a former pizza shop. But if you want gerat food and don't care about the atmosphere - I highly recommend this restaurant.

This place is yucky. We didn't even enjoy our wonton soup. Not very clean looking and the wait staff was their children who weren't old enough for their duties.
