For a small-town Chinese restaurant, the China Cafe is just simple and good. Good food, nothing fancy, with a down home atmosphere where you feel comfortable eating or alone or in large groups. A very accommodating staff treats you right, there when you need them, not when you don't.

I have eaten at the China Cafe a few times now and I thought the food was very good. The people that work there are friendly. The service was very good.

We had heard via the grapevine that this was an excellent place for Chinese food. We both came away underwhelmed. There was little to no atmosphere and the food was just average if that. We will not go back since there are other Chinese places where the food is better. On the positive side, our server was polite, friendly and... More

The only reason I even give this place 1 star is because living in a small town means not many options. I would rather drive an extra 24 miles to orofino for Chinese. The chicken had an embedded hair in it, it is dry, taste old, they never get our order right & the restaurant itself is disgustingly dirty. Looks... More

Thanks to Trip Advisor I discovered this eatery earlier this week. I walked in at opening time and asked for pork noodle soup and egg rolls without looking at a menu. The cook, server, manager, bottle washer, etc. understood my request and went to work with a smile. The egg rolls came with a plum sauce that was excellent. The... More

Nice find in a remote area in the middle of nowhere. Good food and friendly service Had Kung pao chicken and chicken with broccoli and both were good.

I dined in this incredible little restaurant twice the week of 11/15/2013 and, on both occasions found the menu to be absolutely astounding! I have never in my life eaten better Won Ton soup (and I have tried hundreds of different offerings). The ingredients were all hand made, completely fresh and authentic made from scratch, as were all the other... More

The food beats, hands-down, Chinese food I've had in several major cities from Seattle to Atlanta. Even though the food is made to order, it comes out fast and there's a lot of it. I've tried several different dishes and it's ALWAYS delicious. The building is a little older but it's always very clean. The service is always friendly and... More
