“Good food at a good price near home”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

The food was hot, baked potato done perfectly, the prime rib was awesome . Our waitress Jess was very attentive and made sure we had an enjoyable meal. Less than 10 miles from home! Great price,great food and good customer service. We even got a free magnet calendar.

“Fresh and Fun!”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

A favorite of mine is their onion strings, crisp and tasty! Also, a nice Sunday brunch spot with friends. I usually get the breakfast buffet on Sundays, but the individual offerings are tempting, too. Love the friendly service and "homey" feeling. Have also gotten help from owner, Norm, on local business to use for many things, like pest control, since I don't live in the area year round. Very helpful. Sign up for their newsletter. Very interesting! Espcially Norm's trips to India to visit his daughter and her family who live there.

“This isn't your run of the mill China Din-ah!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

Please prepare yourself to be very pleased. My Wife and I have found peace at last, at least in regards to a delicious meal. We will normally drive many miles to enjoy a GOOD PRIME RIB , this before we ate at the China Din-ah. To say their Prime Rib is good is an understatment. I'am not one to heap praise on, but this restaurant is one that deserves this and more.
Friendly,fine food,pleasant,fine food,good service, fine food, something to look forward to and receive happy memories from and lastly FINE FOOD.

“Always fun!”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

We live in Texas, my parents live in NJ, but have a lakefront cabin near China . . . So although we're not exactly "local", we eat here several times a year. Just a few days ago, we took our 5 kids and my parents to celebrate their 47th wedding anniversary, so there were 9 in our party. Service was happy and fun, food was good, prices were reasonable -- as always. But this time, when Sherri found out that it was my parents' anniversary, she and her staff went over and above. There is no "anniversary song" to sing to patrons -- like many restaurants do for birthdays? Sherri and the girls actually made up a song while we ate dinner . . . Then gathered around and sang it while they served our dessert. Everyone at the China Dine-ah seems to truly enjoy what they do, and it shows.

“Grandma Style”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Stopped in for a quick bit, late one Saturday afternoon. Everyone order something different and everyone really enjoyed their meals.
I ordered the meatloaf which was excellent served with mashed potato and mixed vegetables yuk.. out of a can never never serve these …..never yuk. Other than the mix vegetables all our meals were typical homemade grandmother style cooking…… and we all walked out of there with happy bellies. Looking forward to my next visit.
