The food and customer service is beyond good. We have never had a bad meal or poor service. I would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone! It is a rare find to have both excellent food and service time and time again. My kids love it here too. It may be a little pricier than some carryout Chinese restaurants but... More

I went to lunch with a co-worker. She picked the restaurant. I had never eaten here before. She had been here once or twice before. When she said the name of the restaurant was China Café, I was a little reluctant. Was I wrong, it turned out to be a "Wonderful Surprise". It is in a strip mall, but when... More

(As mentioned in another review) the lunch was really good! Loved the ambiance, the music - and staff was attentive without hovering or being obtrusive. Reasonable prices and nice portions. I will definitely visit again and often!

We were looking for quality Chinese food at a fair price. Because of the reviews on TripAdvisor, we decided to give China Cafe a try. The food was okay, but the prices were high. Our expectations were high because of the reviews and we were disappointed. Dinner for four was $60 and portions sizes were small. My teenage son was... More

This small restaurant should be a top rated spot. They are creative with the menu. The food is always excellent and the cocktails are very good. The service is attentive without being obtrusive.

Lunch menu is reasonable and very filling. The different dishes that I've eaten have been very good. The dinner menu is more extensive and at a reasonably higher price than the lunch menu. They have a full bar and nice choice of hors d'ourves.

I dined at China Cafe and I can recommend this place as a great dining experience. On a busy Friday evening, we waited about 30 minutes around the bar, which had a big screen TV. We were seated in the center of all the action and were promptly visited by the manager who took our drink order. My guest ordered... More
