Have been coming here for years for the consistent food quality, small eatery setting, and fair prices. Family-owned, always good.

China Express is great! A friend of mine told me about this place and they will literally put what ever vegetables you want into your meal. I usually get the pork fried rice with peas, carrots and baby corn added. The pork comes in big chunks, and taste amazing! I always get good service when ever I go in, plus... More

As we were searching for a restaurant that was open in the off season, we happened upon China Express. There were only 5 or 6 tables in this very unassuming restaurant that is located in a small strip of stores in Bethany. The owners were very friendly and the service was great. The best part was the food. We both... More

Picked up lunch for me and my husband. He is a lo mein fein and tries the dish whenever we do Chinese. His chicken lo mein was described as "average" in flavor. No problem with the amount of chicken; it just didn't compete with what he gets at our hometown restaurant. I had pepper steak. The peppers and onions were... More

Excellent made to your taste Chinese food in a great atmosphere. "Z" makes everyone feel like family. (In fact it's a family that works there ). It's where all the locals go! Prices are reasonable too.

We have lived in the area for about 9 years now & have tried many of the Chinese Food restaurants in the Sussex county area. This one is by far the best! Owner is very friendly & accommodating. Will make your dish anyway you like without hesitation. We have never been disappointed.

We had heard that this was mostly good so we thought that we would try it. We were not disappointed. They also would make anything you wanted gluten free! Only complaint was their portions were a bit small.

After sampling the area's Chinese restaurants, my wife and I have found this to be THE place. The food is consistently delicious, the owner and staff are courteous and friendly, and the prices are in line. Lots of choices for meat eaters, seafood lovers and vegetarians. They get super busy in the tourist season, so plan accordingly. Love the duck... More
