The atmosphere is lovely inside and the fact you can sit out on the patio is a plus. The patio is in the parking lot of the mall so nothing to see but it is still nice to have the option. The wait staff was very friendly and anticipated our needs. We started out with the chicken dumplings, I was expecting pot sticker like consistency so when they arrived and were simply steamed and seemed soggy and plastered to the plate, I was a bit surprised. The filling was tasty though.
We both opted for the lunch specials. They came with a salad which had too much dressing on it. The spring roll was average. The lemon chicken was typical, nothing spectacular. The best dish was the shrimp dish, the shrimp was skewered and grilled and was very tasty. It came with a pesto like spaghetti which was delicious. My complaint about that is as good as it was, $12.99 for two shrimp is awfully pricey in my book. And this was the lunch menu. In conclusion, not everything on the menu is great so choose wisely.

The China Grill advertises itself as providing "Contemporary Chinese Cuisine" and essentially that's exactly what it does. Very friendly service and a wide ranging and interesting menu including a number of tempting fish dishes. Good atmosphere and quick service despite a busy evening.

Went to China Grill on a Sunday evening after the shopping center was closed, so it wasn't particularly busy. I had an excellent waitress who was attentive and made me feel at home. I had the krazy egg rolls (C+), hot and sour soup (B), and kung pao chicken (A). Okay, not a particularly adventurous Chinese dinner, but the restaurant did a nice job with these old favorites. Would certainly return.

China grill is a great spot to have very American Chinese food. The quality of the food and the atmosphere is better than your traditional chinese restaurant, but you also pay more for that. Definitely recommend though for your favorite dishes.
