The China Cafe is a nice place to eat. Not much to look at from the outside, but pleasant atmosphere inside. Many, many choices of entrees, and the staff is pleasant and attentive. The food is pretty good--not the best I've ever had, but well prepared and enjoyable. The prices are also fairly reasonable.

I was looking for Asian food in Duluth. Out of the 3 Asian restaurants I've tried before in Duluth, this is the best. I had a wonton soup, which was delicious, and the voodoo chicken, which was decent. The serving was big, service was prompt & courteous, price was affordable. I ordered medium spicy but it was mild, so we're... More

Our Beta Sigma Phi chapter meets there once a mo. for a 11:30 meeting. Service is great--we're up away from other patrons. Food delicious and you get a huge amount for the price.

The China Cafe is conveniently located just a couple of blocks South of McDonalds on London Road. So it is easy to find right off I-35 or not that far from the Hospitals or Downtown. The Meals are very reasonable on the prices. Meals average about $9 per meal. But you should be able to feed TWO PEOPLE with one... More

China cafe. What can one say. If you have eaten in one you have eaten in everyone. Same people, same service, same food, same wallhangings. For some folks, who don't like surprises, I think it excellent.

Great menu that includes several soups and appetizers, a huge number of lunch and dinner choices, as well as kid's portions and a few American-style dishes. Servings are generous. Entrees range from mild, to savory, to spicy-hot. I lean toward spicy foods, but when I can't decide, my standby is Orange Chicken with a dash of added 'heat.' Staff is... More

Used to be a standy-by Chinese craving spot but something's changed. Fried rice isn't as good and you no longer get a cup of their delicious soup. And why can't I ever get a knife?

Having become unhappy with my prior favorite Chinese restaurant, I started going here based on other Trip Advisor reviews. This is far better than my prior favorite ever was. Everything I have had there has been expertly prepared, and is very, very good. In addition, the service has been exceptional and the prices very reasonable. All in all eating here... More
