As others have already mentioned, the place is old and looks very dumpy. It also looked that way in the 80s but it's still around. The reason has to be the food. This was my first visit but my wife was a frequent guest back in the day. The portions were huge (a normal person can easily get 2 meals... More

ordered take out for 4. Went to pick up and almost (should have) cancelled my order. The place is a disaster and should be bulldozed down. Smells worse than it looks. Then it came to eat, it was absolutely terrible. Rice tasted like something plastic, chicken balls where tough and tasteless. I'm not one to throw food out, but it... More

I used to take friends here during university. It's located in a house that looks like it's about to fall over. It smells like must and has dirty wicker lawn chairs to sit in. You can put a quarter into a machine an get your love astrology or your future told to you. Last time I went I listened to... More

You definitely get what you pay for. Very inexpensive and huge portions, but the quality is not always top notch. However, I have always been more than satisfied. The husband and wife team are friendly and the service is always quick. A great choice for Chinese takeout, especially on a budget!

When we are looking for a quick fair priced meal, rice bowl is where we go. So far we have never been deceived by them, you get what you ordered. :)

I have been ordering take out Chinese from this man and wife team since I can remember. Every time is always a special time. They are quick on the draw in delivering food and certainly always ask if I "wanna can-a pop". Every other order seems bigger than the last and the plates always seem heavier every time I get...

I used to eat here more frequently as I lived closer, but I still remember the HOT sweet and sour sauce. "You wanna pop?" Has become an icon for the small Chinese takeout under dog. The locationis tiny, sparsely decorated with authentic chinese hierlooms. But then again, eating in is not the goal of this service. Your intention is solely... More

The worst Chinese in town! It tasted like they dove into dumpsters of other Chinese delivery places to put together the order. After two bites I was sick all night.
