I have enjoyed several meals while staying at the Best Western, which is a few steps away; or when staying at Candlewood which is a short walk away. Each time, the food was good. I often order a Cashew or Kung Pow Chicken dish with Hot and Sour soup, made spicy, and Fried Rice. The staff is friendly and attentive... More

Hubby & I used to dine here regularly but in the last couple of years, we've come in less and less because food seemed to have changed in flavor- a bit salty sometimes and I wonder if they had started using food-enhancing seasoning. Joann is their best server, attentive, friendly, and pleasant which make our dining experience enjoyable.

We had a group of fifty, which is always a strain on the staff, but they knew we were coming and could have been better organized. For some reason they insisted we individually order from the 6 combo set meals, when it would have been far more efficient if they put out a buffet. As it was, most people had... More

I am a regular visitor to two of China cities 3 locations, Oak Harbor and Freeland. I can say I am never disappointed in the atmosphere, the food or the service. First the service; they are always prompt and efficient as I have come to expect, we are seated right away due to the abundance of seating. I can't remember... More

We got take-out ... I didn't intend to spend too much time there, as the location is the former Mitzel's Restaurant and I didn't was "Chinese food" in Mitzel's. BOY, WAS I WRONG!! The current ownership has done some marvelous things with the old location, in terms of decor, seating, and ambiance. While it's NOT "China" ... it's as good... More

As soon as I walked in the thing that caught my eye was the Asian decor. This restaurant was beautifully decorated and clean. Another plus was that it was in the same parking lot as the Best Western that we were staying in so we were able to walk over after our dip in the pool! We were a party... More

In the past year the service and quality of food has diminished. This used to be our favorite Chinese restaurant but is no longer. Looking for other places.
