I've been going here for over a decade. It is by far the greatest Chinese food I've had. The owners and waitstaff do everything they can to make you feel welcome. The service is fast for such quality food.

Purchased a large take out order 4 large dishes and won ton soup. Food was ready on time and very tasty. This restaurant is highly rated and does not disappoint. It is moderately priced but the generosity of the portions level the playing field significantly on a per portion basis.

Mainly take out, finally sat down for a formal chines meal. Very pleasant greeting as well as from the service staff. lot of well made tasty dishes, if it is possibly a little "same old same old" then you can not deny that every dish is cooked to perfection, with well prepared technique to retain a balanced bouquet of flavors....

It is easy to get a table even during prime dining times. They do an incredible take out business and food service is almost too fast. The beef and chicken dishes are very flavorful with tender meat in bite size pieces. We always enjoy the vegetable egg rolls as an appetizer. My daughters favorite is the beef lo mein and... More

this restaurant used to be one of my favorite chinese restaurants: however, lately, I have not enjoyed it: Hopefully, the menu is better: some of the choices are very good, however, and it is great for families

The Crownery frequently gets awards but I have no idea why. It's average Chinese food and often dishes are too greasy. Menu is broad and service was good.

Had not visited this restaurant for a number of years. Had stopped going to this restaurant because the quality of the food had consistently been going down. A business associate suggested meeting there for lunch. Unfortunately, the quality of the soup and main course were severely lacking. Could not finish the meal. It is unfortunate because I do not like... More

I think the food is about the average for a strip mall Chinese restaurant. What I would like to see improved is the communication during the ordering process. The servers are very nice...but, twice now, language barriers have resulted in order mishaps.

I've not been here for a long while thought I'd try it once again - they are not friendly at all prices are high and service horrible & way to rushed! Food wasn't good and I won't be going back ! Three chances and I'm done!
