Don't let the modest, dated look of the building fool you! This is one of my favorite places to eat in the Clemson/Seneca area. The food is fantastic, maybe not AS authentic as one would find in an urban area, but still wonderful. The wait staff is friendly and attentive and the owner knows her regulars when they come in...

Went alone and had egg rolls egg drop soup and beef something. It was a filling meal but I do not care for their soy sauce. It appeared clean and the staff was friendly

I had hoped for more having eaten in Chinese restaurants in nearly all 50 states. But I must say I had better in Bismark, North Dakota. The eggrolls were thin, greasy and full of nothing but cabbage. Fried rice, included with all meals, was nothing of the kind. Colored steamed rice at best. The entrees had little meat, just a... More

pleasant atmosphere. I tried sweet & sour chicken. Breading on chicken was very thick and hard. Chewy. Spring rolls and rice were good.

Let's start by stating the only negative about this place...lacks ambiance. Inside is definitely in need of remodeling. However, they make up for it in food quality, quantity, and price. The staff is very friendly as well. You can not beat the combination specials on the back of the menu! Must try if you are in the mood for Chinese!... More

China Inn is hands down our favorite Chinese restaurant in the area. The food is always fresh and the serving sizes are generous. They have great lunch specials Monday-Friday.
