I love the Hunan Chicken at this restaurant. It is loaded with vegetables and I get it extra spicy. It comes with fried rice and a drink for $5.45 as a lunch special. I highly recommend it.

Today was my first visit to China Cafe as I have just started working in Gastonia. I ordered the Hunan Chicken lunch special for $5.45. I could only eat half of it because of the portion size.

Standard Asian take out. Small but super friendly and quick. You get tons for the money and it has always been good food. The only think i didn't care for is the fried rice doesn't taste/look to be fried. It looks like normal steamed rice with some type of flavoring and color.

I really like quick bites and take-out places, but I wasn't that impressed with China Cafe. I got the sweet and sour chicken, which came with fried rice and a drink for lunch. It cost me less than $6. Really good price, and good quantity, but the taste wasn't quite what I'm used to.

I've liked this place for years! They provide large portions of MSG-free Chinese food at very reasonable prices. It's a great take-out restaurant. I give them a call and leave the house. By the time I get there, about 10 minutes away, it's ready. Yum Yum!!!
