When I first saw the outside of China Stix, I wasn't too sure about eating there. But once I walked into the restaurant, everything was very assuring. Nicely decorated, but not with the cheesy dragons and the ridiculous hanging lights. However, the staff was not Asian at all. But that allows anyone to work there, encouraging a multi-ethnical staff. Although the laminated menus did not match the ambiance of the rest of the dining area, there was a very large selection. From pan fried dumplings to Hunan delight, the restaurant was quite diverse. First, I ordered the pan fried dumplings because I am a huge fan. About ten minutes later, they came with a spicy sweet sauce which was extraordinary. It complimented the dumplings extremely well. Next the three entrees came: Kung Pao Chicken (If it isn't good, then the whole restaurant), Sesame Chicken (For a sweet touch), and Jalapeno Chicken (Just for Fun). All of them were great, especially the sauces. Believe it or not, the sesame chicken was my favorite. Although a little overbreaded, it was quite tasty. The Jalapeno chicken came in second, but it still had a unique flavor. It wasn't as spicy as I wanted it, but the taste was great. Finally, the Kung Pao Chicken was my least favorite. It was just a little bland. At least it wasn't your ordinary square-chopped chicken with square-chopped ingredients. Instead, you could taste all of the vegetables in your mouth; like they were grown in the kitchen. Everything was very fresh, which was a major turn on. Each dish was served with an egg roll and fried or steamed rice. The egg roll was ordinary - a little bland. The fried rice was actually surprisingly good. With the sauces from the entrees, the rice combination was excellent. Overall, the food was very pleasant. Service was satisfying. One thing to improve on is service though. Also, the food could be a little more seasoned. Other than that, it was a very good Chinese restaurant. I would definitely go back again and again and again.
Believe me, I know good Chinese food, and this is GOOOOOOOOOOOOD Chinese food! I now go there so often I don't even have to order...they just bring me my favorite dish. They also --- Mama Pearl, Papa Pearl, Daughter Pearl and Son Pearl --- treat me like family when I go.
This restaurant is mainly a drive thru restaurant, it delivers very far from its location and it's family owned, the prices are much cheaper than other chinese restaurants and the food is always made really quickly and has a high quality, I highly reccomend it!
I like this restaurant I go there three days a week. It is excellent! Foods all fresh. I don't know why you guys say bad things about it. But I never see the stuff you said in this restaurant. Anyways. It's great. I like it!

I have gone to this little place for years. Their lunch special is limited, but excellent. They serve the BEST pork fried rice with all specials, lemon chicken being my fav.
Frommer's guide recommened Van's, but when I drove by the first time I wanted to keep driving!Our server recommended two very delicious dishes from the encyclopedia of a menu, a chicken and vegetables dish made of crisp, fresh veggies and a light sauce and shrimp tempura. The two negatives were …
Outstanding food. If you like the real deal order from the back of the menu. I lived in the DC area for many years and frequently traveled to NYC, so Kim Wah favorably compares to restaurants there. The name Chinese BBQ is misleading in the sense that it is not a BBQ joint.

This is the place to go for good food and a good 'ol time. Every Friday from 7pm-11pm there is Karaoke. Has a great home feeling and there is no judgment. If you want to keep on singing throughout the night ask DJ SkudR Jones who will keep working the night at another location. But you have to c…

While Tapei seems to get the larger crowds, Beijing is more reasonably priced and has just as good (if not better in some cases) food offerings. If you want to try something different, ask for their Vietnamese menu (for eat in or take out).

Very excellent food no matter what you order, and the staff are wonderful. We eat there often, and I have taken others with me and then they become fans. Never too busy or dead. This is a very reasonable place to eat. Laura P.

Since now under new ownership and management this place just keeps getting better. The Hot and Sour Soup is fantastic. Family favorites are Imperial Shrimp and Sweet and Sour Pork or Chicken. The ""sweet"" tea has just a hint of jasmine and is sooooo good even my husband (who usually does NOT…
They basically have the same items that are offered at China Sea but they also have Octopus and a larger variety of this type of sea food. Nice variety of Sushi. People were nice and friendly. They get very busy at lunch time so I would not advise coming here for lunch if you are on a tight sc…
The food is ok. Main courses are usually good. The rice is average, could be better. Fast service at the drive through. The guy that usually works the drive through window is pretty friendly. The ladies that work inside are average. Four stairs instead of 3 only because of the…

Ordered sweet and sour chicken got 7 pieces of chicken. Order was missing the egg roll and portions were very minimal. Had to wait ten minutes for order just to get home to have to come back because order was not complete. Management was incompetent to run this business.
We tried China Bistro tonight as my husband had been dying to try this lovely little restaurant. It is tucked in a small strip mall on Babcock but do not let that fool you. Once inside you notice how cozy and welcoming of an atmosphere. You are greeted upon entering and everyone there is very gracious; very much concerned about your experience. Since it was our first time, the owner even came to chat with us after dinner. The food is very good, fresh and deliciously prepared. I ventured a bit outside my comfort zone and while I am not usually a fan of green and red peppers, the food was excellent, wonderfully cooked and presented. You cannot beat the price and if you choose the dinner special (4pm to close) you receive soup, fried rice, entree, egg roll or crab rangoon or sweet and sour pork for around $7. You also receive the little fried crunchies with your soup. We were simply shocked when our server brought out our dinner. The portions were HUGE. I mean we left with four boxes of leftovers and we are not little eaters! At any rate, try this place - you will not be disappointed by this quiet, very clean, very welcoming restaurant. We are big Chinese food lovers - both Chinese American dishes as well as authentic Chinese dishes. We have enjoyed Chinese food in some of the best places across the US and Canada. . We have also had the pleasure of eating in China, specifically the Hunan and Guangdong provinces. China Bistro is definitely a cut above with their cozy atmosphere, their awesome food, and their fabulous service! If we could rate this restaurant with 6 stars, we would!!!
I have to agree the food from Peng's is very good but the men in the kitchen (including Jenny's husband) are not very clean. I worked at Peng's for a while and could not believe some of the things the cooks did back there like smoking while cooking the food, dropping food on the floor and still using it. There were always rat droppings in the storage room and when Jenny did have the exterminator come she never closed the next day although she knew there were gonna be roaches everywhere. There was 1 day I was so embarrased because a table of 3 women walked out without paying because a big roach was on their table while they were eating, plus there were roaches on the blinds and some crawling on the floor and all Jenny said was "Just pick em up with a napkin and throw em away". People always complained about the taste of the iced tea and that is because they do not use a tea machine, instead they put the tea bags in a bucket with hot tap water and let them sit in the freezer.
