we didn't get seated. The signage states please wait for server... There was two other tables and two people waiting to pick up orders... They need management and staff who are willing to look after their customers. We decided to go to king lam instead. Which wasn't too bad. We=4

We decided to go out for a quiet supper on a Sunday night. As we have come to expect from the China Rose, the food was great. The Lo Mein and Chicken Roll was the best in town. Service was perfect.

Though it will say I travelled her in Aug 2016.. I actually live here in the outskirts of Truro. I was born here. We love Truro and when we want Chinese Food we always choose China Rose. The people are friendly and the food is fantastic.

The China Rose not only has great food and large portions. You will need to take home a doggie bag for this one. :) It has a very romantic setting and a great place to go for an anniversary.

Not consistent. One time is awesome the next time it's barely edible. Hit or miss. We normally just get Thai. The restaurant in general needs a good cleaning and to be updated. Staff is nice.
