We were driving back from a day trip and called to place a carry out order, knowing we'd not want to cook when we got home. As we called where there was a space with cell signal, I had a special request......that the order be delayed to match our arrival. However, the lady taking the order kept repeating, "it will...

I thought overall this was a good chinese food experience. The lady serving us was nice, but blunt. She was efficient enough, and the food came out fresh and of very good quality.

We were both satisfied we had the sesame chicken and empress chicken. Both were very good. We haven't had anything we didn't like, and we always have good service. Great lunch spot for the wife and I.

Took wife and son to lunch while he was in town. We go here Witte often and the food is always excellent!!! Lunch is an especially good value. You get entree and fried or steamed rice, soup (egg drop our hot&sour), an eggroll, and a crab Rangoon for about $7.00. fast Service at lunch time to. Would highly recommend.

The reviews I read about this being great food were on spot. I thoroughly enjoyed the food and loved the little neighborhood restaurant. If I lived in the neighborhood, I'd be a "regular". I loved the red lantern light fixtures. There was the oddity of not giving us our actual ticket. I would have given this an excellent rating but... More

Only place I go for Chinese and it never disappoints! Seriously so good. And everyone, get their pot stickers. They're the best.

I ordered the hot braised chicken and an order of egg rolls. I only had to wait 10 minutes after placing my order before it was done. Food is very fresh and tasty. I have never had a bad meal here. And one of the biggest positive is the fact that I have never had them forget something from my... More

Ting's is a great choice for quick Chinese food that's always outstanding. Most people get their food to go, but the restaurant is nice too. Good service and reasonable prices. Definitely recommend this place either way!

My mother had chicken with snow peas which she said was excellent an my dad had a pork dish which we requested to... More
