Great family value and a surprise find in Maine for chinese dining. A great selection of convential chinese dishes with a lunch buffet. Very clean and a friendly atmosphere for either eat-in or take out.

Everything we ordered was good, big plates, we took a lot of food (Chinese food taste great reheated for some reasons!)The service was efficient, no fluff. It was busy at dinnertime on a Friday but we barely had to wait at all for anything. Many local families seem to eat there with their kids, laidback crowd, completely unpretentious.

I had to get my wife something for dinner, I decided to go to this restaurant because it was close to her job. I wasn't disappointed, it was quite delicious! I will return!

It has finally happened; I'm done with the place. I had previously given service a high rating, and I must have been delusional. They don't care whether you ever walk through the door again. They keep winning "Best of" because they are the only game in town and people who consider a Pu-Pu Platter a true representation of "Chinese food,"... More

Awesome food and great lunch buffet. The buffet was affordable and there was a variety. I've ordered the chicken with string bean and it was so good. I will definitely return again.

I always order the PoPo plater because it has everything you need for Chinese Food. I also think you should get the Sherlie Temple.

I know I can count on China Coast to deliver hot, freshly-cooked dishes that taste great and really hit the spot. I've never had any issues with the food or service in all the years I've been eating here. I know exactly what to expect and they never disappoint!

I've never been partial to this restaurant but it's the only Chinese nearby. I break down twice a year figuring that they must have improved. WRONG!!!! I ordered Roast Pork Egg Foo Young. The congealed mess that they called sauce/gravy was the most disgusting thing that I've ever seen served on a plate. Absolutely inedible. The best thing I can... More
