“Chinese is just "Ok", better places in the local area”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2011

I am an avid chinese food eater, i've tried all the places, the pupu plater is always the test for me becaus you get a nice sample of all the best apps. This place is just average, no great but not bad. This is pretty much just takeout, no place to eat inside, and building is out dated. They have been around for a long time so they must be doing something right. Prices were fair.

“You won't be sorry”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2011

Generals chicken is awesome perfect amount of coating on chicken good fried rice and boneless ribs hot and sour could use some work. I only wish they delivered to Saco cause the china house can't touch the quality or prices of the happy garden

“Good Chinese Fast Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2010

OK, so it's Chinese fast food, but who doesn't like that once in a while, right? And they do it right here. I've eaten there several times, and it has always hit the spot. Doesn't seem greasy (for what it is) and there are choices that are healthier stir fries.
Bottom line is cheap, quick, unpretentious and good. Worth a stop to cure a hankering for egg rolls and crab rangoon.

“Some of the best Chinese takeout I've had.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2010

I can only speak of the takeout food a family member brought home (I didn't go to the restaurant myself). But it was fabulous. Everything seemed fresher, crisper, and more flavorful than what you usually get. Fried food was fried to perfection, not excessively greasy.. I'd definitely get it again!
