The food here is well-prepared, and DEAR GOD, do they love chiles. I have never had a bad mouthful of food. I can't recommend it enough, no matter what you order.

If your taste buds are missing the Chinese food you have back home in India, this is a good place to eat. Very tasty food & one that won't allow you to miss home.

Should try the mouth watering Kai chi and chilli chicken. China spice also has a banquet hall for small parties or functions. One of my cousin did a party in their banquet hall it was pretty good for the crowd he invited and everybody loved the food :)

It was nice to be there especially if you are craving for Indo chinese fusion food. The food was nice, hot and spicy like I would get in any Chinese restaurant in India.
