I am new to the area so I googled this restaurant online I wanted Chinese really bad. Anyhow, I knew I should have left the place if I didn't smell the food and the restaurant was also really dingy. I placed a takeout order the woman was really nice. So, it took like 20 min for my food so initially... More

This has to be the dirtiest grossest place I have ever been. Our food smelled like to lady that cooked it. It tasted worse than it smelled. I would not recommend this place to my worse enemy. Maybe years ago this place was nice but not NOW.

This a favorite of ours for many years. The food is great and traditional Chinese, especially Huanese and Szechuan choices. Beer and wine are also available. It is moderately priced. The owner, Joyce, is friendly and helpful with the menu. The crispy fried rice menu items and szechuan green beans are always good. The atmosphere and decor is neighborhood dowdy.

I probably come here 2-3 times a month for the last 6-7 years. Joyce and her husband run this humble restaurant and have done so for the last 25-30 years. I can't get enough of their shredded tofu with pork,roast pork with snap peas, governors chicken, spicy green beans and fried tofu. In fact everyone on the menu is great.... More

My son and I had lunch at Chung Ching and were very pleased. I wanted a spicy shrimp dish. The waitress explained two of the dishes, but when she learned that I liked mushrooms with my spicy shrimp, she had a special stir fry made to order for me. It was fantastic. My son also liked his chop suey and... More

I dined at Chung Ching while visiting my friends, Marty & Suzy, in Cincinnati and I was assured by my host that this would a real treat. As usual, my friend was spot on with his endorsement. We entered the restaurant via the back entrance and were warmly greated by the owner, Mrs. Yung. It turns out that Joyce Yung... More

The Sweet/Sour Chicken is so sweet and good. Also had Broccoli and beef and Vegetable noodles and egg roll. Brown rice was great. did carry out, but have eaten inside many times. very much family run and owners are there all the time. Very wonderful.

The best Chinese food I've had in a long time. The Governers chicken and veg is great! Careful with the mustard, it's DEVASTATINGLY hot! Really a Mom and Pop shop that does things very well.
