This is my go to restaurant for quick, delicious Chinese food. I have visited many times. It is fresh made and they will customize a dish if requested. They've kept a high A sanitation rating which is hard to find in this type Chinese restaurant. They only have 8 tables and food is served on foam plates with plastic utensils.... More

Most fast food Chinese restaurants are the same. So things are made well other not so much. The rinds were very good the wonton soup a little salty. Crab rangons had a very tasty inside but the model was soggy. The wonton noodles were stale which is very common for take out restaurants. The pork mei fin was fair. The... More

Okay, so not the greatest atmosphere after all, it's basically a take-out place. BUT, the people are always friendly and the food is always good. Basic Chinese takeout. But the prices are great and we like the ease of ordering.

Have been getting take-out from here for many years...it truly is the best chinese take out in Cary. Typical 'american' chinese dishes are done well (e.g. Moo Goo Gai Pan has lots of big chunks of white chicken meat, egg rolls are nice and plump, General Tsao's chicken doesn't have too much batter) and they do a General Tsao's Shrimp...

We have been getting our Chinese take-out here for years,mand it is dependably good. The atmosphere is not fancy, but the house lo mein and chicken dishes are our favorites in the area.

Drop by the pub next door or the ABC store a few yards away if a Mai Tai is what you need, but you won't find better food than at First China. There isn't a better Chinese restaurant in the area with fresh ingredients, a full traditional menu, friendly service, and even tables to sit at if you can't wait... More
