Love this place. Good sushi at a good price. Also like their dim sum, Bok Choy and crab rangoons. They also have snow crab, but haven't tried it. My husband and I must eat here once a month. Worth a visit!

My family has celebrated many life events at New China. Each and every time the food has been excellent. If I have to list any shortcoming, they are slow to keep the snow crab leg pan filled. Otherwise, I've had nothing but fun and totally...More
