To be honest we were a bit disappointed with the food and service. We have had better Chinese food at local take out locations. We will not be returning.

One of the oldest Chinese restaurants in Sussex County always excellent food. Service is very good and establishment is always clean. If you like Chinese food Chun bo is the place to go

While their sushi is very good their Chinese food is horrible. We went there on Monday which happened to be a no-sushi day and it was a food disaster.

The food and atmosphere at Chun Bo is terrific! Wait staff can be somewhat disappointing depending on who you get but the overall value of the cuisine makes up for it. Sushi to Szechuan....something for everyone!

We eat in or take out - the food is uniformly good. Nice atmosphere and pricing in line with other like restaurants in the area. It's nice to be able to be able to get decent Sushi as well. Only reason for 4 stars is that we had a sub-par experience with the on-line ordering. Like no one looked to... More

We love Chun Bo. Nothing fancy or unusual; just good Chinese food and Sushi/Japanese entrees. Friendly wait staff, fast service, tall cool drinks, generous portions. A go-to neighborhood place that never disappoints.

After a hectic morning running errands in the 90 plus degree heat I needed a break. It was after 2:00 in the afternoon and I didn't feel like making something to eat for lunch so I stopped at Chun Bo on Sparta Avenue in Newton. Chun Bo has been a landmark restaurant for decades. It was so cool with dimmed... More

Good food, but the taste has changed since new owners took over it is still one of my favorite restuarants.

Went with my husband, daughter, and my parents. We had the combination dinners which start with a soup, then your meal, then dessert. Soup was good! I liked my combination platter, good amount of food. The egg roll is not good. My husband and I did not like them. The ice cream was very good and creamy. My daughter is... More
