For many years I have really liked China House. We haven't dined in for many years. We did tonight, and now I understand why we don't normally. Firstly, those ugly fish that swim in the tank. My husband asked me to chose a place where he didn't have to look at them. The entire restaurant is decorated in 1980 fashion,... More

I love the atmosphere and the service. I especially love watching the koi swimming about in their giant tank. The food is always hot and there is quite a selection from salads, Chinese and Canadian food. Something will appeal to even the pickiest eater in your family. I highly recommend this place for families, groups/parties/ and for singles.

I have eaten at many Chinese food restaurants in my life and this one isn't bad it's not my favorite and I do feel there may be better in town the food was hot and was delivered promptly.

This is a typical Chinese buffet restaurant that has been in business for many years. The food is good. The biggest problem is they haven't redecorated anything in all those years so the atmosphere is not great.

Came here on a week day. Apparently their buffet is only on weekends so we ordered a-la-carte. We got the "Big Eater" combo for 1 to share since the waitress told us it was a pretty large combo. It was just the two of us that day. We ordered an extra egg roll and wonton soup as well as their... More

This place has gone down hill!! Disgusting rotten tasting food. The owners don't give a crap about their customers. The worst Chinese food in town. Take my word for what it's worth and go somewhere else!!

Placed my order at 5:15 pm, to be delivered at 7:00 pm. Delivered at 7:20 pm. Ordered dinner for 5. Chicken Balls and Breaded Shrimp would feed 3 people. Received Sweet and Sour Sauce when it should of been Pineapple. The Owners would not take any ownership of the lateness or lack of food. Will not order from them again.... More

The service was not great. The food was mediocre. It was a disappointing dining experience. Would not recommend nor would I return.

First and last time, we had to have the buffet, could not order from the menu. It was not only the worst Chinese food I ever had but the worst food ever. NEVER EVER EVER GO THERE unless you want a horrible meal and want to suffer for hours after with indigestion.

I arrived just as the buffet was being completed. Excellent service. Food was piping hot. Owner and staff are very friendly. Lots of orders were being filled for Take-Out. I was really impressed with the set up. It was over a year ago when I last visited. I must admit, this was the best visit so far. I will be... More
