Pretty much everything at this restaurant is delicious. They have the best scallion pancakes and the sauce that comes with them is amazing. Also, the orange chicken is beyond!

My family and I have been patronizing this restaurant since it opened. We often order delivery, and sometimes sit inside, most often at the bar, There is a regular crowd for drinks, apps, and keno. The food is good, basic Chinese food. We most often order lo mien, house rice, and kung pao chicken. For appetizers, the dumplings and crab... More

I have ordered take out from this restaurant on several occasions and the food has been average. This time I wished I had read the reviews before ordering take-out. We ordered vegetable lo mein, crab ragoon, chicken teriyaki, General Gao chicken, string beans and rice. There was not one item that was edible. Worst food we have ever tasted. Everything... More

This is a terrible Chinese restaurant! I went there with my family and the woman who served us was in bad mood and did not want to explain anything in the menu. I asked for something without any red meat in it and she gave me something with pork! Not only she did not care when I complained that my... More

I don't come here for authentic Chinese food. I come here for what's essentially bar food, like chicken wings, beef teriyaki, and crab rangoons - that sort of stuff - which in my opinion is some of the best you can get in the Boston area. Fried rice is great too. If I was expecting more I'd be disappointed, but... More

It's in my neighborhood so from time to time I stop by for some take away. I never eat inside, it looks creepy with some tables in a large room next to a bar where people often gather to gamble at some Tv game. Portions are generous and although everything taste similar, the quality is good.

I really like this place. they VERY accommodating. And will explain dishes you inquire about. They can & will omit certain ingredients if you ask. Over all not a bad bang for your buck.

Fast service and tasty Chinese food characterize this Somerville Ave mainstay. Delivery is fast if you're not into dining there, which is understandable, as the Keno machine draws an interesting local crowd. The food and value make it well worth the visit. The bartender always has a heavy hand and their scorpion bowls are always good.

I like old fashioned Cantonese restaurants. And this one is in my general neighborhood so it has always intrigued me. But now that I've tried it and my curiosity is satisfied, I don't have to go back--ever. The food just isn't very good. Nothing tasted fresh. And the service was, how shall I put it, unenthusiastic. I didn't feel very... More

Bob, the bartender, is sure to warmly greet you upon entering China D. Pull up a stool, order a nice Mai Tai or whatever your drink of choice along with some great Chinese food. You won't be dissapointed!
