My mother lived a mile from China View and would walk there for lunch almost once a week. When I visited her she always wanted to go there. We both loved the food and appreciated the service. I am planning a trip to Long Island in September 2016 and wanted to eat at China View in part as a remembrance... More

wait staff at best was ok.. can't say the same for the food. There are so may local restaurants on long island that are so much better. The pancakes for the moo shoo pork were dry and brittle. You would think that the waiter who was rolling them for us would have gotten fresher ones. The noodles in the house... More

Shortly before taking our trip to Long Island this past summer, we found out that China View had closed their doors forever. All of us baby boomers who grew up in Plainview considered China View the "go to" place for Chinese Food. My most heartfelt thanks and appreciation go out to the China View family and employees who always made... More

I have nothing bad to say about China view. Food was good, place is comfortable, service was good. No complaints. It's your typical. That said, its been around a long time so they are doing something right.

I moved away from Long Island to New Jersey years ago, and one down side to that is the Chinese food. Chinese food in New Jersey is not very good especially the Chicken Chow Mein, which has always been my favorite dish. So when I was in the area I couldn't resist going to this old style sit down Chinese... More

As some other reviewers have stated, this is a throwback Chinese restaurant and it's showing its age. One of the reviews says, this is the best Chinese food on Long Island. Well, I think they have to get out more often. The food is plain basic Chinese. Don't get me wrong here, the food isn't bad, it's just far from... More

This restaurant is a throwback from my youth. This is the best chinese restaurant. Hot tasty food with concerned service. Pricing is right. This is the way Chinese food use to taste. No frills, nothing fancy. Glad I found the China View in Plainview NY.

Boring, bland, cantonese cooking with poor service. If you want tasty cuisine, try Szechuan or something else.

We found ourselves in Plainview for business and wanted a good but inexpensive meal. We happened to be parked in front of China View and after looking up reviews decided to give it a try. True to the reviews, the place was awesome. This is a throwback to the Chinese restaurants of yesteryear when you can still get "one from... More
