So we had a completely different experience than most compliants of this place. Owner was extremely nice and on top of things! Food was good but not good chinese. We had beef and broccoli and while it was good in its own right, it just didn't taste like chinese...maybe they had an off night? We will go back one more... More

China House is the best Chinese food anywhere around. It's prepared right in the kitchen to your specific taste. Anytime you need a "feel-good" meal - this is the place to stop!

Mrs. Ho runs the front and her husband cooks a great variety of Asian food, mild to wild, to your preference. The servings are generous and it arrives quickly, freshly cooked, and in the usual Chinese atmosphere.

She gets to know her regulars names as well as their favorites dishes and though rarely seen past the busy swinging kitchen doors, her husband... More

Group of 10 received prompt and attentive service. Broccoli chicken was great; not-so-much for cashew chicken.

This place is horrible. There are no nice words to describe it. Even the owner is rude and mean. Head South for better Chinese food!

Rice is perfectly done, egg rolls great, and meals Re always fresh and just as ordered. Love that they have Thai on their menu and for the price, the experience is a... More

So the owner lacks in social skills, kind of cookoo, seems a bit rude unintentionally, but it is actually funny! They have really fresh cuisine and our family gets take out at least 1-2x a month. You get a lot for not much, really important with a house of growing boys. Yummy Lo Mein hands down!

My husband and I have really grown to love this place. Honestly, we don't know much about Chinese food and usually go to buffets so we can try a variety of things. We've been here three times now and have found things we really enjoy. The House Lo Mein is so good -- especially the "spicy" version. Large portions, quick... More
