This little restaurant is near the University of Louisville. Although it serves Chinese food, I have not eaten this cuisine, but have eaten the Thai food which is good. The owners and people who work the restaurant are friendly and helpful. It is a great to have China Inn close to the U of Louisville Campus.

It's cozy, comfortable, and quaint. Owner Penny and... More

I recently visited China Inn during a conference I attended in Louisville, KY. I had not visited there in some time, since I moved from Louisville some 5 years ago. But, my previous visits had all been good ones and I considered them one of my go to's when I wanted Chinese. This visit was not a disappointment either. Though... More

I first ate here in college a long time ago. Now my daughter goes to University of Louisville and has been there as well. Typical inexpensive Chinese fast food. Nothing special nothing fancy just what you would want in this campus location.

I like this little spot close to U of L for their Tai. The peanut noodles are great! The portions are huge and the prices are good.

Been coming here for more than 20 years, when I was in college. Egg rolls are excellent. Also HIGHLY recommend their dim sum. It is delicious; the sauce they serve with it is very tasty also. If there was nothing else on the menu except pork fried rice, I would still visit this place. They make the best fried rice... More
