We used to order from here all the time but it had gone downhill lately. The Sesame Chicken was ALL breading and mushy dough (we started eating it then cut open every piece then threw it all away because there wasn't 1 piece of chicken), and the chicken Lo Mein didn't have any taste. It was very disappointing. Wish there... More

Very disappointing! I ordered something with chicken and shrimp and there was absolutely no shrimp. I called they told me to bring it back and I did. Was not satisfied with there response so got money back and will never go back again

The food is really good here and we are personal friends with the owner since we live in the same community. Take out is fast and delivery is also available. The inside is dirty and probably hasn't been cleaned for a long time. But the good food makes up to it. Definitely stop by if you are visiting Ephrata!

Food is so, so, but the atmosphere is just awful. The surfaces look like they haven't been cleaned in who knows how long, and the exterior is not inviting at all. If I hadn't been with others who insisted on going in, I wouldn't have ventured in myself.

Our favorite is the General Tso's Chicken. It is the best in the area. Great service, amazing food and good size portions!

I know the owner and she's really nice. In fact, she lives in our community! However, once when we went there, I saw a group of ants by the trash can by the entrance. It was horrible. But the food is okay. I'm half Chinese, so I know when food is good. Most of the time, they put all kinds... More

One thing Ephrata does not lack is Chinese restaurants, so deciding which one to go to could be a challenge. However, being a resident of Ephrata, I have had occasion to try almost all of them, and I have to say China Taste is my favorite. Service is always fast and friendly, and the food is always good. My family's... More

ADDRESS CORRECTION: This restaurant is located at 8 E. Main . .. . NOT 810. I visited this restaurant for some takeout on a visit to Ephrata. The food was very good. My companion, a Chinese man, was especially impressed by their Egg Drop Soup. "One of the best" he had ever eaten was the way he described it. Located... More
