We just wanted some quick chinese takeout, and the other chinese place in town was closed, so we settled for Number 1. Delivery is offered but they were too busy so we had to pick up the food. Ok, no big deal. The food was average at best with bland being the consensus from all four adults that were partaking.... More

I have been going to Number 1 since I was a kid at least a little over twenty years, and even though I try new Chinese restaurants in the area I always come back to this one. There isn't much dine in room, and the decor could use an update but honestly it adds to the charm. The staff is... More

Good take-out and service. The standards here are done well, from the ribs to the egg drop soup. Love the spring rolls and chicken fried rice. More exotic choices like the duck are not as well prepared.

Great and modest at the same time, this tiny little Chinese restaurant in Bethany has the formula down just right. Decent prices, good location, polite and friendly, and some very nice dishes for eat-in or take out. Make sure you order early in the summertime, otherwise you may not get through on their phone lines- yes, it's that popular! I've... More

If you crave that Asian flavor while staying in Bethany Beach, here's the place you need to know about. The menu is extensive and the food...all take-out....is very good and there is lots of it. Good for the budget, too!

Upon recommendation of some locals, we ordered take out from Number 1 Chinese Restaurant. I must say that the service was quick, and the wonton soup and fried rice was good, but the Seafood Delight truly sucked. It had inedible green lobster meat (1 piece that we found), and it looked like imitation crabmeat. Sorry, for $14, it should have... More
