Not a huge buffet, but okay food. Low prices, really bad service. If you live local and need fast and cheap, this is your place. If you are from out of town and live in the real world? Go somewhere else.

We order from China Inn occasionally and really enjoy the food. The staff is friendly and helpful. There is enough food in the dinner special to either share a meal or have a meal left over for the next day. We have had the General Tso's chicken, sweet and sour chicken, orange chicken and shrimp lo mein. No complaints!

We ordered a variety of good for our family. The best was the Moo Goo Gai Pan and the egg rolls. The not so great was the fried rice and the shrimp in lobster sauce. Overall it was ok.

Feb 18, 2016. I stopped in at 3:00pm. For take out, I ordered the Chicken Chow Mein with Egg Roll and White Rice, I eat the meal with a glass of chilled Riesling Wine. Delicious! Enough for 2 full meals. $8.25. You can't beat the price. I will be back.

I ordered sesame chicken...the coating was soggy and the chicken looked and tasted very dry and was hard to chew. Other dishes may have been better and there was certainly enough rice and vegetables, but not satisfying in terms of taste.

June 10, 2015. I stopped for lunch. I ordered the Chicken Chow Main with Egg Roll and White Rice. Food was delicious! And it was enough for a high school football lineman. I had to get a box. Cost $6.25, you can't beat the price. Place has 3 tables with chairs but most of their business is takeout. I will... More

We were just passing thru and looking for a quick dinner. The food was exceptional. As good as any I have eaten anywhere. Staff was very nice. Could not have been more pleased.

After reading the many 4 and 5 star reviews, we decided to give this place a try. I called in my order and requested that the Happy Family was made "hot, hot". We also got the Hot and Sour soup. I had some trouble getting the extra spicy part of the order across, but she finally seemed to understand what... More
