Take out order was prepared fast 15 minutes, but the quality of food was substandard. Specifically, the chicken was all dark meat while I prefer white, the bean sprouts seemed old, the sauces were thin and watery in the vegetables. The vegetables were also too...More

I've lived in Belleville for decades and never tried the Modern Cafe until just a few months ago. We ordered take out Chinese food for the whole family and were very impressed with food quality and pricing. Will be going back for sure.
