Authentic Chinese food at a good price, especially for lunch, check this location out. Fun for the kids and families alike.

Good food at reasonable prices. Some of the best egg rolls around! The food comes quickly after ordering.

I've ordered from their N. Aurora location for 12+ yrs and am pleased to say that you can count on a rocket fast pick up time (usually no more than 10 mins). Egg rolls are great, same with hot and sour soup. Egg foo young portions are massive and delicious. Everything I've had here has been really good. The items... More

I wasn't sure what to expect in this strip mall, but the restaurant was warm and inviting in its décor. There is a nice area in the front of the restaurant and another room that I could see having groups for parties. The menu is extensive and very traditional. I had a taste for egg foo young and got the... More

When we are shopping on Randall Road in the North Aurora area, and in the mood for Chinese, we always go to the New China Inn. For $ 6.95 you get Egg Roll, Soup, and entree with Fried Rice. Plus a pot of tea. We ordered Chicken with Pea Pods and Water Chestnuts, Lunch this time was just ok, it... More

$6 lunches are better than what you would expect lots of options. Supper menu has a large offering from chop suey to seafood dishes. Very good egg foo young.

The food is good and the portions are generous. However, don not let them seat you in that second back room where the service is practically non-existent. We were seated there because there was no booth open in the front. We waited to be noticed to place the order, there was no attention during the meal and at the end... More

We go there all the time for lunch. Their lunch specials are a great deal. You get the dinner sized entree at lunch price with an egg roll and soup for free. The food is always good, comes to your table fast and it's never that busy. Definitely my favorite Chinese restaurant in Aurora!

Hosts/hostesses always have a friendly greeting, but none of the rest of the staff seem to share that friendliness. Service is exceptional, but there's not a lot of happiness here. None of the servers smile or look you in the eye. I spent $10.15 plus $2 tip for Mongolian beef lunch and the portions were very generous. I couldn't finish... More
