We ordered takeout and took it back to our hotel. We liked the food although it was no different than what is offered at any small, fast food restaurant located in a shopping center.

Call ahead and they'll have it ready in 10-15 minutes. Cooked to order and fresh. We get beef and broccoli, shrimp fried rice, chicken and mixed vegetables plus spring rolls for about $21. Yummy! Good for three with leftovers.

Nothing special about this place. Old looking environment that requires renovations. You order at the counter and then sit at one of the 6 small tables. Eating area is clean. The food and service was okay but nothing to rave about,

China 88 is like many of the chain Chinese Restaurants with a paper menu and very few tables. It is close for us so we takeout fairly often. The Chinese chicken wings with five spice powder are very good as it their egg drop soup....More

China 88 has these things going for it: Huge menu Speedy preparation Friendly service Good food Plenty of parking The food is good, not spectacular but it is hot and well-seasoned. Not too salty like some Chinese food. We'd go back.
