Everything about my meal was good. Hot, fresh, plenty of high quality meat. Great garlic flavor. Perfectly cooked, fresh egg rolls and great pot stickers- this spot is a keeper

I was very disappointed in China Tea House. I had gone before and it was tasty. I can only think the chef changed because this time even the spicy choices had NO flavor and even the vegetables were sweet and gloppy. Just a lousy meal...of chicken lo mein, Veggies with garlic sauce and Gen Tsao chicken (soggy and all breading). We have got to be able to do better than this for Chinese food in Mechanicsburg!More

this is the second Chinese restaurant that has tried to pull-off using chicken fat in place of chicken meat! Are you kidding me do you think we're stupid I just had a dish called the neighborhood from China Tea House the chicken was chicken fat!...I couldn't believe what they were trying to pull off I'm a fat foodie, you're not going to pull any food crap on me! Oh my God it was disgusting! The beef had fat in it and was tough. I don't get it they really must think we're stupid. It's sad.More

We use to eat at Chef Wongs until they retired and haven't found a new chinese food home. We have eaten take out from here and recently dine in the restaurant. They are small with only about 3-4 tables but they we attentive to our...needs as well as the other tables and we enjoyed our experience. The food is good. What we have ordered in the past and what we had the day we were in there was done well. Good flavor from each dish.More

If you are ordering delivery, make sure that you order ahead - by at least two hours. I called them to place an order at 11:10 AM, was told that it would be 45 minutes, and the food was delivered after 12:30 PM. They messed...up a handful of orders, and missed an entire meal. I called them to let them know and they said that they would send someone right over. Over 30 minutes later the food was delivered (they are a 5 minute drive from us). Their food is good, but I don’t suggest ordering from a place that doesn’t care about their customers.More

My wife and I thought we'd give this place a try for dinner last night, but made a mistake. Food was bland - ordered fried pot stickers, General Tso's Chicken and Mango Chicken. Pot stickers were OK. Not much flavor to either entree, almost institutional...grade lack of taste. Brought home leftovers of the mango chicken for our son and he found a sharp piece of plastic while eating it (and was lucky it didn't cut his mouth). Then I woke up this morning with symptoms of food poisoning. Really regretting this now!More

We dined here on a Friday night and just didn't like it. We tried ordering hot tea since we both love tea it was a cold and rainy day but they didn't offer tea. How is it called China Tea House without having tea? Really...it's just hot water and tea!!!! They only offered bottled iced teas. I also didn't like the food, maybe it was what we ordered but my son's shrimp with lobster sauce was in a sauce I can only discribe as mucus. I had the short rib dim sum and it was all fat. The hot and sour soup was very good but just didn't like the other food enough to ever return.More

Great food. Always very friendly. Food is always good and hot and good portion sizes. Often throws in extra items to try. Don't like new location. Not as convenient as previous location.

Lots of reasons this is the best Chinese food around. 1. Food is Excellent! 2. People are very friendly. 3. Place is clean. 15 minutes from me but always willing to travel to China Tea House for outstanding service and their spectacular food. They've changed...locations. Look at their website for the current location. I will try to update the location on Trip Advisor.More

Stopped at this location because it was on my way. Did not look like much on the outside, but the food was very good. It is a family business and locals inside were raving. Ordered Chicken with Cashews and a chicken egg roll. Wish I...had ordered 2 egg rolls - so good. Plenty of Cashews too. Had enough for lunch the next day!More

Friends love this place. First visit-really was impressed with the menu. Egg rolls were tasteless. General tso chicken had mostly balled up fat in breading and sauce. Service ok but food does not create a return.

China Tea House is operated by a great family from Chengdu, the fourth largest city in China. Having been to China several times, if you don't see what you want on the menu,just ask, in most cases they will make it. I like to order...walnut chicken, or tomatoes and eggs, you don't see these on a normal menu.More

The location and building would give you the impression that China Tea House is just one more Chinese take-out shop, but we were pleasantly surprised. The food was fresh and quite good. Lunch prices are economical. We came away thinking that they could prosper if...they were in a better location with more parking.More

The service can be spotty, depending on the night, other guests. Food is generally good. Fresh vegetables special is always good. Only place that has dim sum, but you order it, not pick it off carts being walked by. Reliable, if you go when it's...quieter. They have a few dishes hard to find elsewhere, besides dim sum. I go fairly regularly.More
