“really gone downhill”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014

We have been customer of the China Cup for 10 years. Went there for dinner our last trip to PG. Their buffet tables were not at a proper heat (too cool), the floors and washrooms were filthy, the cooks were out of the kitchen in soiled whites standing by the till visiting and the food was god awful!

“not your best choice”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2013

My girlfriend and I were on a date night, and decided we'd try to save some money by going here. Long story short: the service was poor in that no one came by to remove the dirty plates. But that was something we could have lived with. No, the deal-breaker for us ever going there again was the quality of the food. The roast beef was tough as shoe leather, the mashed potatoes reminded me of wallpaper paste, the chicken was chewy and greasy, and the sweet and sour pork was so dark and chewy that we wondered if they used the previous days leftovers to make it. All in all, we considered it a waste of a night as far as dining went. Our money would have been better spent somewhere else. Next time we go out for dinner, this place will not be on the list.

“Not good at all”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

I'm guessing the reviews that suggest this place has good food are people who have not tasted authentic well done Chinese food. I am in the area working and thought I would try this train wreck because it was close. I ordered the mushroom and chicken chow mein, and spring rolls. Tolerable, but not fresh. It was as if some noodles were put in a tray (I ordered to go) and a few ladles of "chow mein gravy" was dumped on top. It was heavy and gross. The spring rolls tasted like they where once frozen. But if you just want crappy cheap gross food, take a seat and....enjoy?

“Lots of food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

Not a bad deal for the money but a lot of the food tasted the same. Very busy place, If you have teenagers that like to eat then this is a good deal for you.
