We got the Pu Pu Platter for 2 to go as we were staying at a hotel near by. When we opened the bag, we were a little shocked at how small it was considering we paid $20.00 for it. Skip the chicken and beef teriyaki all together as they were dry and thin. It looked like someone threw some... More

We recently stayed at the Fox Ridge Resort in N. Conway and did not want to venture out to eat after a long day. We decided to eat in and order out at The China Chef. The food was ready in 15 minutes by the time I got there. The portions were a little skimpy for the price , but... More

We wondered why the prices were so low and now we understand. Only 2 other customers during Sunday lunch hour, but still it took 45 min to get our food. We were 1 adult and 3 kids. Ordered from the lunch special. Low main came and looked like a soggy soup from a can. We all got fried rice which... More

The China Chef mid-strip (Rt. 16) is sandwiched between a Comfort Inn and a Pool Hall, behind a 7-11, and yet it is a gem. The dining room is long so a little dark in the back, there is a small bar, and a brisk take-out business. The manager, Mr. Ho, is delightful, and there every time we visit, which... More

We wanted Chinese takeout to avoid eating out. This worked but wasn't great. The appetizer combo was smaller than expected with only 1 spring roll and the beef teryaki being a much smaller strip of meat than I have ever experienced in the past. The General Gao's Chicken was over cooked and the pieces were too big. Same goes for... More

I asked the hotel staff why this restaurant doesn't have a wait a mile long. they made me feel better that they specialize in take-out. My family and I eat hear every year at least twice during our family vacation. We have plenty of Chinese food restaurants around us but none of their food compares to the awesome taste of... More

Most of the food was terrible. The lo mein was good but the egg rolls/chicken fingers were terrible. However, the service was excellent! The family who runs the restaurant are friendly and accommodating. It is unfortunate that the food was just awful.

I've ate the best Chinese food ever at this restaurant. The service was good and fast. It's also affordable. I'll return there for sure if I go back to North Conway.

I have been to every Chinese restaurant in the area. Most are ok at best... But the China chief has a terrific staff. And a owner that will make you smile and laugh, with every conversation. The food is delicious. And I look forward to trying something new, every time I go there. Summertime is short for everyone. So do... More
