This is a local landmark. Good food to eat in or take out. Parking in a small lot in back. Good prices for a sit down meal. Friendly staff - family run. It will be missed in town when it closes.

Sit-down (as well as take out) Chinese restaurant. Very good food and good value. The Sesame Chicken was exceptional as was the lo-mein.

New China Inn is my favorite, but they don't deliver to where I live. They are a bit on the pricier end for Chinese food, but it is so worth it! My favorite is their moo shu pork.

It has been several years since the last time we ate there but the food is still excellent. Great atmosphere like an old time chines restaurant.

I've been eating here since I was 5. Now I bring my 5 and 7 year old kids! The best Chinese food around and you can't beat the service! We've never done take out: we always eat there. The food is amazing, the portions are perfect and the price is right. Why go somewhere else?

We haven't been here in a few years. We ordered from the specials menu which included soup, entree and dessert. All the courses were very good, the service was fine and it was a really nice dining experience. And very inexpensive. Mom & Pop comes to mind. Definitely will be back.

My family has been dining at the China Inn for over 30 years. Does not matter if you eat the food there or take it home, it's always good. Best egg rolls around and their wonton soup is great!

This place is a family run place that has been around for many years. The food is very good and reasonably priced. BYOB is also a plus in that you are not paying another markup.
