Pleasantly surprised to have fast and delicious Chinese at a great price. There was plenty of succulent shrimp and beef in our dishes.

This is your typical Chinese take-out joint with a few booths and a lunch buffet. The buffet is good and under $6 with a free tea... quite a bargain. Everything we've had there has been pretty good and unlike many similar restaurants, the food isn't salty. No MSG!

This is a small 'fast food' type of chinese place but the lunch buffet ($5.29) is awesome!!! Most buffets are at those mega-buffets with a thousand things to choose from, chinese and not, and most have been sitting too long). This place is small and simple and perfect for lunch! Everything was tasty and fresh, and the variety was good (few beef, few chicken, 2 soups, eggroll, 2 rice, veggie, etc.) The pepper chicken and the mushrooms were my favorite. Very clean, nice staff, paper plates, simple. Just simple, good lunch when you are starving or want variety (or both).

Oh wait! This is the only Chinese restaurant in the area. This is a typical fast food Chinese place with the pictures of the food up on the wall and you order a number seven with a side of 3 and hold the 15. This place is on the lower end of the quility scale of fast food Chinese but if you find yourself craving a number 8 it's not bad. I don't recommend the buffet. I know it looks great when you're starving and it's really cheap but trust me. Its like eating Long John Silvers the first couple bites are tasty but you walk out saying " I will never do that again".

My last visit to China House was to pickup a takeout that I had called in. As always, my order was ready when I arrived (10 minutes) and one order is enough for my wife and I so that cuts in half the already good price. At lunch time their all you can pile on buffet is very popular with the locals, especially construction workers who can get their fill for the best buy around. The dining area is fresh and clean and your order is cooked fresh and quickly. They serve a large selection of chinese favorites that will surely fill you up.
