I ordered Ma Po Tofu and two vegetarian egg rolls to go. The Ma Po was made without meat at my request and had large pieces of fresh tofu, a few large fresh green pepper slices, fresh mushrooms, but frozen carrots and peas. The sauce was a little thick for my liking. The vegetarian egg roll was not on the menu, but they were large and appeared to be hand wrapped. A little greasy, but no worse than anywhere else I suppose. Service was pretty quick, probably because it was only about 5:00 pm and that seems to be a slow time. I would probably go back and try a different dish - they have a very large menu and they were very polite.

The outside of this place is kind of scary looking. It's not in the greatest part of town, but the food is wonderful. Best chinese food in town hands down. The service is always friendly and if you get delivery they're fast.

Evergreen Chinese Restaurant is not what you would normally identify as a Restaurant. It's VERY SMALL with three or four tables where people normally call and pick up their orders. The food is fairly good but salty tasting. I once picked up shrimp and egg rolls to go and they were put in a paper bag. By the time I got the local park to sit and eat, the bag was soaking wet with grease. The location is close to the Elmira College and you can pull in off the street to park. The help is friendly and the prices are reasonable but their are other Chinese locations I would recommend before this one such as "Happy Family" which is further South on Main Street, just over the main street bridge.
