Hot and sour soup, egg roll, tangerine crispy shrimp. Soup was not spectacular but the shrimp was fantastic (as well as being enough for two) and the eggrolls were good. Tsing Tao to drink,

Chin's has been consistently good since we started going there 35 years ago. Don't be deterred by its location adjacent to a Holiday Inn - this is an independent restaurant. Food is mostly Szechwan with some Mandarin and lots of seafood as well as chicken,...More

Good food anytime, but on Sunday's they have a special menu with real treats... dim sum, Szechwan, etc. Quick service and really good food... generous portions. We picked 4 dishes to share and still took food home. Located next to the Hotel, but excellent food......More
