Best Chinese chicken salad on the planet. Anytime I am anywhere one of these restaurants are I have to stop and get one. There isn't anything on the menu that isn't delicious.

The combo wrap on wheat pitta. The bbq sauce here is the best. I mix in hot sauce with it. This is without doubt the best chicken wrap anywhere

Like many reviewers have mentioned, the food here is simple but delicious. The chicken is done just right and the salads are mixed well. The prices are just right too. The only reason this place can't get a full 5 stars is because of the parking situation. I highly recommend street parking because the parking lot is extremely tiny and... More

Tasty and acceptable price. You can take home and have your lunch/dinner. Salads are strongly recommended together with chicken.

I order them by phone and pick them up. I love their food so much I'll order two salads with dressing on the side and eat them for both meals. Sublime.

the chicken was really good, moist, flavorful. And the sides is equally good. For the sides, gotta try the hot potatoes, broccoli salad!

I'm not a fan of chicken, but CCC is when I become a chicken-believer! I always get the 3 Piece w/2 sides ($10). The Chicken Pasta Salad is a must! I also get the Veggie Rice Primavera. It's very light. There is always left overs. (I know I should just get one side but it's so yummy!) Make sure you... More
