We have eaten at the Chinese Food Express many times and the food is always hot and tasty. The vegetables are cooked just right and the steamed rice is great. We usually go there for lunch and because the place is small, sometimes it is a bit crowded. The prices are reasonable and the portions are big.

Never offered a refill, ordered kids meal charged for full entree, forgot appetizer and offered for us to buy it after meal. Terrible service food was mediocre. Try china garden instead!

This is the best Chinese restaurant in Hays. Not much atmosphere but great food. I especially like the shrimp with lobster sauce.

Place is kinda small, so we mostly order take out. We usually order the Chicken Chow Mein, Beef and Broccoli, and egg rolls and everything is really good. Prices are reasonable also.
