“Best Chinese in Maine”
Reviewed December 25, 2013

I was amazed at your online menu options! Thank you for the best Chinese I've had in Maine since moving here in 1989. The wings tasted 'right'. Egg roll perfect texture/ingredients. The Gen Tso's chicken was the best I've had since first discovering it in SoCal decades back. We will be back OFTEN!

“Great Chinese takeout”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

China Eatery offers a very extensive and well prepared selection of Chinese food, ideally suited for takeout. this food is tasty and the best takeout available locally for Old Orchard Beach, Saco areas. Have had service here on numerous occasions and the food is consistently good. Good value for money too.

“Food needs improvement,good service, nice owners”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

The food has totally changed since the last time I was here which was 3 years ago. The positives are; the owners were very friendly and personable, the place seemed clean and a good family atmosphere...BUT. the food is soooo very bad. We have never had inedible chinese food ...ever..until today. We were so starved we were able to take a nibble out of each thing. And each thing..was horrible. We must be ''those people'' lol .(.the bourgeouis ,if you will,) that enjoy pu pu platters maybe once a year But, we do expect the food to be at least....edible. The spare ribs were tough in places and pure fat in others, the eggroll tasted like cardboard, the chicken was disgusting, everything was coated in dripping grease. We have never thrown chinese food away because it was inedible..this was a first. I am so dissapointed, I couldnt wait to get home, try the food and write a raving review because the husband and wife were so very sweet. I hope they fix the food problem and go on to much success.

“Best of area”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

There is a lot "just sugar pile" Chinese restaurants in our area. (Wok n roll BEING the WORST offender) but at China eatery you can get pretty good american Chinese food. They do have the PU PU platter items for THOSE people but you can also get chicken, beef ,pork and seafood dishes with still green broccoli in it. The ambiance is very simple. it is mostly a take out place but they do have some parking spaces. We go about once a month for the all day luncheon specials.
