Great atmosphere when dining in and always willing to accommodate for any special requests. I'm glad their menu has a lot of traditional Chinese dishes to offer also. They offer a very quick take out and delivery for when your on the go. I have not tried their smoothies yet they offer about 6 different kinds so I'm interested in... More

I took my daughter here for her birthday dinner. The service was wonderful and the food was delicious. We wish we had an East China Inn restaurant closer to us. It was worth the drive for this special occasion!

We often frequent the East China Inn in North Aurora and find it consistently good. We were in the area and tried this one and found it to be very good also. The service was attentive and the food was very good. Based on our experience at the other location we expected this one to be good and we were... More

Had the best lightly beaded / fried fish with Chinese vegetables on pan fried noodles instead of rice. The last place that came close to this in taste was the fresh fish I had in San Francisco. My new found favorite restaurant

I am always very happy with the East China Inn experience. The wait staff is helpful and friendly. The food is a very good quality and delicious. The prices are amazing for the amount of food. The lunch specials include rice and an egg roll for less than $6.00. Amazing!

This used to be our go to Chinese Restaurant but starting in the summer of 2014 the quality of the food really started to fall and got so bad we will never return. Add that to poor service, forgotten items when ordering take out and you have a terrible experience

Been here half a dozen times hoping it will get better because we live right down the street. My dish was so salty on the last trip that it was burning my mouth. I told our waitress and she explained that the cook had mixed up the salt and the sugar. I think I would have checked dishes that were... More

My family and I have been eating at East China Inn for years. It's not the Chinese restaurant closest to our house, but it's the best. The food is authentic and fresh, the portions are more than generous, and the menu is varied. The wait staff are all Chinese and very friendly and accommodating: if you want something that isn't...

Hands down, East China Inn has the best Chinese beef meals we have ever encountered when picking up take out Chinese food. All of their food is tasty and a treat to eat, but their beef items are just amazing. The prices are a tad high, but when selecting a beef entree we always feel that the end result of... More
