Based on reviews my wife and I visited here on a Saturday evening. We thought we would be early (4:45pm) but the place was full and remained that way while we were were there. Excellent menu, wine and service. Between us we had Momma Changs...More

As opposed to so many places that slap together a meal, these people cook. They’re going for taste, not speed. So you wait a bit longer and you pay a bit more. And in the end, you realize you had a delicious meal and you...More

Always delicious, high quality meals, finely prepared with friendly staff from start to finish. Novi residents are frequent regular guests to China Cafe.

The restaurant has a beautiful atmosphere and is filled with extremely friendly and welcoming employees. The lettuce wraps are pretty tasty, but their Ginger chicken with Broccoli is a little bland. To me, the prices reflect the atmosphere and quality of service rather than tastier...More

Came here for a business lunch while in town and I wasn't really hungry, so I opted to order dumplings only for lunch. I had also asked for a cup of wonton soup, but they told me it was only available in a bowl size,...More

This is a small, attractive place. Prices can be high but if you order wisely you can get by at a reasonable price. We started off with that old favorite, egg drop soup. I've had this staple hundreds of times but it never looked like...More

We visit the China Cafe frequently, and often after Church on Sunday, and we're surprised by a somewhat drastic menu change. Our old favorites were unrecognizable in the new menu, though we were told they were still available. Main dish was the same, but many...More
