This restaurant has been in the same location for many years which must speak to its ability to please the locals. I stopped in for a light dinner and ordered the Hot & Sour Soup along with some Steamed Dumplings. I truly enjoyed both. They were doing a busy takeout business while I was there, along with some eat-in diners.... More

Very good food and service. More than enough food for 2 people with the house dinner. Will definitely return!

Very disappointing! Ordered the Beef with Broccoli and Chicken with Broccoli. All that's in it is veggies! Tiny bits of beef and chicken that you can barely see! I ordered the General Tso's chicken and got honey chicken. No spicy sauce. Not worth the money and not authentic Chinese. Won't be going back!

China east has excellent food. The restaurant is very clean and the two gentleman who run it are super nice. The Chinese curry shrimp is most excellent If you are in Sweetwater stop by there and eat

We have been going here for the last 6 years or so. Both dining in and carry out are fantastic experiences. They have never screwed up our carry out order. The staff is wonderful and very nice. I have lived in numerous places and China East is one of the best Chinese restaurants I have ever been to.

The service was impeccable as always. The food was delicious. The only negative aspects I feel must be addressed are: the prices have went up slightly and the amount of food with take-out is a larger portion than dine-in. Neither of these two negative points are enough to dissuade eating here as the overall dining experience is worth it.
