It was typical Chinese food. We got the beef and broccoli and the vegetable shrimp and everything was good.

It always surprises me that there is a Chinese restaurant in such an out of the way place. In fact there are two in the area, so I relied on my relatives who live here, to point us in the right direction. This is the place they chose. We had a version of genera Tso's chicken, beef broccoli, shrimp and... More

Over the years my wife and I have visited the China House three times and unfortunately have not changed our opinions of the food. Marginal at best. However, we have friends from the Bay Area who swear by the place; in all fairness, I would recommend people try it at least once and rate it yourself. The restaurant is clean,... More

My son was in from college in another state, and really wanted Chinese food during his at-home Christmas visit. And China House was great!! We are everything on our plates. China House rivals any Chinese food I've had elsewhere in California. Don't miss out on this local gem.

We went to dinner with friends. Nice and clean. The server was the owner, I think.She was very nice and efficient. We all enjoyed our meal. Our friends are vegetarian and have many allergies and they were accomodating.

This is a very good buffet on Friday's only for many years the quality is as good as when first started. They keep it stocked with fresh choices small but good the Staff is friendly. You can still order off the regular menu on Fridays

We were surprised to find good Chinese food up here in the mountains. They have good service and it is a nice place to eat in, but they have take out too. We have eaten here a number of times (or gotten take out) and the food is always good.

After reading all the positive remarks on various advisory sites, we decided to try this restaurant. I was disappointed, the food was mediocre at best. We had wonton soup, cashew shrimp, and Mongolia beef. I have experienced very good American Chinese food, and great authentic Chinese food in the Bay Area, Vancouver, and Hong Kong. I was not expecting great... More

Always have had great food at the China House in Twain Harte. Their Pepper Chicken is very good. Service is good and the place is clean. On Friday evening they have their smorgasbord with a variety of Chinese Food to choose from.

Although poor in taste, it makes up for that with its portion sizes which are typical. The next closest Chinese restaurant is about 10 miles away in Sonora. How this place stays in business is beyond me. They're never busy, so walk in or take out, its fast and typically inexpensive.
