We went to the Hollywood Theater and China Road was almost directly across Rte. 11 from it. Since I heard good things about their food I suggested we try it out. We were a party of 5 and all ordered different dishes, beef & broccoli, moo shoo pork, beef & scallops, Szechwan beef and honey pork ribs. Everyone was very happy with their meals. The vegetables were all cooked fresh and the beef was very tender. The portions were quite large and we all had some left to take home. They had many dishes that you will not see at other Chinese Restaurants.

The location is nondescript but the food is excellent. It is very real Chinese food. Try the Crispy whole fish with hot pepper sauce. The crab wontons were delicious as was everything else we ate.

The choices and quality of the food at China Road are comparable to those in big-city Chinatown restaurants. There are exotic choices as well as the usual dishes. It's fun to add a completely new dish to your usual choices.

I had not been to China Road in many years and remembered it as being a cut above when it came to Chinese food in this area. So, my wife and I stopped by en route to the airport, as it is very close.

While the place looks the same--somewhat dreary with overhead fluorescent lighting--the food is definitely not of the quality we remembered.

My wife had the fish maw soup with crab. The maw is essentially cheek or gill meat. She asked specifically if the crab was indeed crab and not surimi (basically fish scrapings that are processed, pressed and dyed to look like a range of seafood). Despite assurances to the contrary, there it was: surimi. The stock was a somewhat gelatinous variation of egg-drop which, as it cooled, was singularly unappetizing.

I ordered the Szechuan tofu. The tofu was a nice, soft and almost creamy consistency; the spices were pleasantly flavorful and fresh scallions were added. However, the sauce was very oily and undermined the other ingredients.

The beer and the tea were the only highpoint of this otherwise dreary experience. We will not be returning.
