We had a taste for Asian food and this may be the only Chinese Restaurant in town. It is not directly on the parkway but located in the backside of the parkway. It is worth the short walk. The luncheon meals were well prepared, hot and taste great. We would go back here. The family working there are very friendly.... More

We ordered two meals. One chicken noodle and the other sesame chicken. The chicken noodle was awful, both me and my wife couldn't eat it, barely touched it at all. They charged us for both and even added a fat tip in the bill.

My husband and I make it a point to patronize local restaurants when we travel, and we found this amazing little Chinese restaurant tucked in a quiet alleyway off the busy Gatlinburg parkway. We were not disappointed, everything is fresh and homemade...try the crab rangoon and homemade duck sauce! I'm usually more of a sweet-and-sour sauce girl, but man, that... More

Food was very good. Staff was a little too impatient , often interrupting our meal. Overall it was a pleasant experience. Hard to find, but worth the time to find it.

U dont see it from the road, u do see the sign. When u walk back the alley way, u feel unsure about the place. But it... More

Absolutely love this particular Chinese restaurant. I have yet to find another who can compete with North China. The beef with green peppers is the best I've ever eaten. The original owner (from Mainland China) had retired during our Christmas vacation. However, he is now back and pleasant as ever. We talked with the cook as we were leaving. He... More

We stumbled into North China on a wet, windy day. What a wonderful treat!! Great food, priced fairly and so pleasant. The wait staff was wonderful and my daughter got some practice from her Chinese class. We had sesame, grilled, a seafood dish, and it was all fantastic. Get the hot tea. It's the perfect drink on a chilly day.... More

The water chestnuts and snow peas, with shrimp was very good. I was pleasantly surprised, and at a very reasonable price!
