This is a great place. The service is always great. We always call I orders and get takeout. We live their combination plates. There is enough food for two easily. Our faves are the General Tso's and the Kung Pao. The crab Rangoon is amazing. We also like the Special Lo-Mien. The staff is always courteous and inviting. This is... More

Tonight will be my last visit. Period. I live in the neighborhood and decided on China 1. Right off the bat, the lady behind the counter was rude and disrespectful while taking my order for no apparent reason. Initially, I thought oh well maybe she's like this with everyone. However, while waiting on my order I noticed a stark difference... More

I was staying nearby and was hungry for Asian food so I decided to try China 1. I ordered one of the day's specials: Cashew shrimp with pork fried rice and crab rangoon. The crab rangoon and the fried rice were pretty good. For my tastes, the sauce on the cashew shrimp was too strong, overpowering the other flavors. Still... More

We live close b and this is our go to Chinese Food place. The prices are reasonable. The crab rangoon is delicious --- lots of filling. We also love their take on Kun Pao chicken. It is breaded and fried with just enough spice to delight. MMMM ... now I need to go get some.

Been a few times now and always at lunch. Lunch combos are great deals $5.25 and lots of food. Very tasty, always hot fresh and served quickly. Seems like the dine in crowd is usually smaller which is nice. The inside isn't fancy at all but there's plenty of seating. Definitely recommend going and I always get the moo goo... More

I get take out from China 1 at least once a month. It is always good, sometimes better than others, but always good. The sesame chicken is a favorite. The wonton soup and fried wontons are the best in Maryland Heights by far. The Triple Dragon is a perfect meal to share. They give you a lot of food for... More

Being a Chinese myself, I have a certain expectation when it comes to Chinese food. And I was greatly disappointed with the quality of the food, as well as the service provided. Tried to speak Chinese to them but was spoken back to in English even though it was obvious that they do understand and speak Chinese. Tried to ask... More
