It's really good if you can get served. Three visits, only got to eat twice. Service was slow and erratic the first two times, but I've gone back because the food is good. Ending up walking out last visit after not-quite fifteen minutes. Didn't know I was invisible until now. I have other choices... Maybe if they'd spend less effort... More

My wife and I have eaten here twice in four days. The owner / chef is courteous, he a good cook, they serve your food to your taste (we like spicey) and they get you in and out quickly which is our preference. They make vegetables tolerable, and even tasty! The Pad Thai was very good and generous portions and... More

We're visiting from CO and just happened upon China Lite. What a wonderful place to stumble across! We've been there twice so far, and will be returning many times until we go home. Food is excellent and so is the service. Not a fancy place; it reminded us of the family restaurants we ate at in China.

I was a little hesitant to give this restaurant a review because I really don't want too many others to discover my little hidden gem. However, it is an excellent Chinese restaurant and deserves many kudos for its fresh ingredients and great tasting food. It's a small place tucked in a corner of a quiet strip mall, so call in...

Nice little place for a quick bite or carry out. Food and service were good. Had lettuce wraps and pad Thai. Good flavor and fast service

We have been going here for several years but I have never written a review. Much of the business is take out, but we have always eaten in. The new decor makes it even more pleasurable. The service is quick and friendly. We have tried many different dishes and have never been disappointed. Everything is always fresh and hot unlike... More

Fantastic Won Ton soup. Great Sweet and Sour chicken, orange chicken, and other standard fare. BUT what is awesome about China Lite is that you can order all the dishes in a "healthy" version, and the chicken is made unbreaded. It is all white chicken breast and high quality. A couple times on "Staycations" we have ordered China Lite from... More

My wife and I refer to this as "healthy Chinese food". We discovered it a couple of years ago and absolutely love it. When we're in the mood for Chinese cuisine China Lite gets the call. They have a large number of great menu items but our favorite is the Szechwan Eggplant with Chicken (it's also available without the chicken).... More

My GPS found this restaurant for us when we had a hankering for Chinese food after a full day of sightseeing in the area. It was near our hotel and we wanted take out. Their pad thai and spring rolls were out of this world delicious. The preparation time was quick and service was friendly.
