“Pretty good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

We were visiting from out of town. I was skeptical when we walked in. I ordered a chicken dish and wanted one without breading and not fried. It took a little while to communicate this, but apparently you can order any chicken dish with "white meat". This was sliced chicken breast pieces rather than breaded and fried. I may have cost more, I can't recall. It turned out to be one of the best chinese take-out I have had.

“Poor even for Americanized Chinese Takeout”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

Not much to say. Place is cold inside. Poor decor. Poor food. Usual fake Chinese food ruined by American tastes and prepared for Americans who unfortunately don't know what Chinese food even is.

Sorry - don't mean to appear elitist but this is a cultural thing. Chinese food is one of the world's great cuisines. They don't have Genral Tsao's chicken in China, they don't eat fortune cookies and they don't cover everything in sickeningly sweet and bad for you sauces. Real Chinese food is as far as you can get from most takeout places. By the way, the folks in these restaurants work very hard to pay off the outrageous debts they incur to be smuggled to come here so don't pick on them. They are told what to cook.

But judged from a takeout American Chinese perspective, Rising Sun even falls short. Don't waste your time. Is it better than the horrible Wegman's chinese buffet? - yes. If you want a decent takeout stray from the usual choices on the menu. I would recommend Great Wall in Canandaigua over this place and way over Wegman's. Victor NY has a very decent takeout family run mostly take-out restaurant called Panda Chinese - if you want good Chinese takeout (try their hot and sour soup and their Singapore Noodles).

“not a fan”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

The food here tends to be greasy and not taking a lot of skill to prepare. I'd much rather eat Japanese at Sakura, Chinese at the Market Cafe inside Wegmans (expensive as sold by weight) or at the Great Wall.
