We had a group of fifty, which is always a strain on the staff, but they knew we were coming and could have been better organized. For some reason they insisted we individually order from the 6 combo set meals, when it would have been far more efficient if they put out a buffet. As it was, most people had... More

I am a regular visitor to two of China cities 3 locations, Oak Harbor and Freeland. I can say I am never disappointed in the atmosphere, the food or the service. First the service; they are always prompt and efficient as I have come to expect, we are seated right away due to the abundance of seating. I can't remember... More

We got take-out ... I didn't intend to spend too much time there, as the location is the former Mitzel's Restaurant and I didn't was "Chinese food" in Mitzel's. BOY, WAS I WRONG!! The current ownership has done some marvelous things with the old location, in terms of decor, seating, and ambiance. While it's NOT "China" ... it's as good... More

As soon as I walked in the thing that caught my eye was the Asian decor. This restaurant was beautifully decorated and clean. Another plus was that it was in the same parking lot as the Best Western that we were staying in so we were able to walk over after our dip in the pool! We were a party... More

In the past year the service and quality of food has diminished. This used to be our favorite Chinese restaurant but is no longer. Looking for other places.

The best Chinese in Oak Harbor can be found here. One of the best happy hours can also be found in the lounge. Happy hour pricing on appetizers, drinks and beer makes for a great night out without a huge cost. The low mein noodles were great, as were the gyozas better known as pot stickers. The lettuce wraps were... More

We really enjoy the food, service, and atmosphere at China City in Oak Harbor. Happy Hour in the bar will save you money on drinks and appetizers. It is a great place to meet friends. Some of our favorite items are the crab wontons, the BBQ pork, potstickers, lumpia, hot and sour soup, and house chow mein. They also deliver... More
