I have been to this restaurant several times. Unfortunately this visit was problematic. The waitress was clearly having issues. She arrived at ur table of 5 promptly and asked to take a drink order. We ordered drinks and she came back and said that they could not make our Gin and Tonic because they don't have tonic anymore because it... More

Had to go downtown and found myself hungry after the activity, but not wanting to move my car since I had already paid for parking. This was a stones throw from where I was so I opted to give it a try. It was peak lunch hour and the place was packed but I was seated quickly. The lunch specials... More

My family and I have been going to Chinatown Inn for decades. The decor is rather plain as many Asian restaurant. The service is friendly and efficient. The food is Cantonese for the most part. For basic Chinese food, it is done well and the prices are very reasonable. Good place for several people, all sharing the dishes.

If you're looking for great Chinese food in downtown Pittsburgh, look no further. We tried this restaurant based on a "Chinese Food Near Me" query to Siri. We lucked out! I've been so dissatisfied with other Chinese food I've eaten recently, but the Chinatown Inn did not disappoint. Even though we arrived at 10:00pm, the staff was friendly, the restaurant... More

Nice quiet atmosphere and good basic Chinese food. The servers were very nice, and the restaurant was much nicer inside than the exterior suggested.

We ordered tons and food for take out and it was absolutely delicious. We ordered a lot of food but we did not really have to wait to get it. THe mushu is absolutely a must. If you are looking for noodles try the chow fun. If you are looking for good Chinese try this place!

We ended up here simply because it was within walking distance of our hotel on Bigelow Street. They have all of the Chinese restaurant standard entrees and a bar. My wonton soup was great.

Good place with lots of tables which is easier for a business lunch verses a booth. The menu was large but has many good choices. Both colleagues ordered soup and entrees and very satisfied with their meals. I ordered gluten free and left there very full. It's not the easiest place to find and the outside is very deceiving compared... More
