Best Chinese place in town. If there is ever a better place, I confess I won't know it because I would never dream of going any other place. Sizzling Garlic Shrimp and Special Beef are our favorites.

Foods is great so is the hospitality. Can't go wrong here. All food is cook to order so it's always fresh.

China Inn is in a typical generic business park/strip center (but in a nice part of town) so there is nothing remarkable to cause you to drop in. I came for an early week lunch and it appeared every table was full, so they must be doing something right. The good: - the food tastes good - the service was... More

Our family has grown up with China Inn, having been customers from its inception. We've never, ever had a bad meal there. The dishes are consistent, year in and year out, and always well-prepared with fresh ingredients. The menu is extensive and very well priced. We are always pleasantly surprised at the bill.

This restaurant continues to give personalized service and food that is excellent. The serving size is more than enough and the value is as close to perfection as one can get.

My husband & I visit this place often for lunch when we go to SA. The food is quite tasty, it comes out fast, and the prices are great.

Extensive menu makes this an excellent option for take out. Hot & sour soup - just the right balance. Steamed dumplings - order of 8. Tasty sauce. Well worth the $$. HUGE entree portions.

Even the most ardent steak lover like to step away for something different once in a while. This restaurant provides a great atmosphere for such a move. The facility is not overly spacious but neither is it crowded. Service is fast and efficient. The workers gave us the special attention most of us like when we eat out. The food... More

I had a lunch date with my wife; we chose China Inn. This is a humble small place at the back of a strip center. No frills are in evidence- thus, the food has to speak for the restaurant. AND it does! We both chose the Triple Delight plate which has beef, chicken and shrimp. Talk about hot soups (wonton... More
