The food is really just average chinese-american fare. They take cash only, and will insist that you walk or drive down the street to CVS for their ATM; it's just not worth it. Their prices are slightly higher than other restaurants in town as well.

I have been going here for 15 years they have the best tasting Chinese food around. The only negative thing I can say if you go here when it's cold out bring your jacket. they must not turn on the heat.

We have gone here on several occasions and the food is always good. They do not take credit cards. They are willing to make the food with any alterations that you want to make. I don't think any Chinese Food place is really overly clean but since most of the food is fried I usually don't worry! We have never... More

I think this is the best Chinese in Pottstown. Just stinks they don't take debit/credit cards. But other than that, very good. Their rolls are the best.

We've ordered many times from No. 1 Chinese. The garlic sauce dishes are the best as well as the beef and green bean dish. We don't care for their Lo Mein or fried rice - they just don't taste good as other places. When we pick up the food, there's a wait because this place is pretty popular. We've waited... More

Don't hesitate ordering your Chinese food from No. 1. It truly is the best in the area. I drive 20 miles when I get the urge for Chinese, and I don't doubt for a second it's not worth it. The family running the place works very hard and takes a great deal of pride in what they do. They know... More

These guys have great Chinese food. Mongolian Beef is the best in town. Sweet and Sour chicken & shrimp are very good & lo mien iis great too. Definitely worth checking out. It's a family run business & they are friendly & courteous.

I was next door doing some grocery shopping and stopped in for a few egg rolls and soup. It was so dirty inside that I left without ordering anything.
