I ordered the Kung Pao Chicken. The chicken was scarce to say the least. There were chunks of uncooked carrots with a lot of celery, peppers and corn. Very little chicken. Also ordered the General Tso chicken. 3 pieces of broccoli, which like the carrots, were not cooked enough. This dish had a little more flavor at least but the... More

Everything I've ordered from Paper Crane has been delicious, their spices and sauces seem to have a little extra pop of flavor that differs from some of the other Chinese Restaurants, very good.

Got it delivered to our hotel. Decent price. Would have given 5 stars but the food arrived 1/2 hour late. Food was awesome. so going with 4 stars. Ordered Vegetable entrees and their General Tso's Tofu and Ginger tofu was really good.

The food was okay. I got it delivered and part of the reason I was unhappy was I actually didn't order what I meant to...I wanted the chicken teriyaki, but I accidentally ordered the fried shrimp...I'm not sure how that happened, but it was my bad. :(

Needed a quick lunch while attending the GardenTour during the Azaela Festival. This was a great find. I had the coconut shrimp and it was delicious. Both our meals totaled less than $15. The fried rice was also very good.

I would like to thank you for ruining our meal, lying to my husband and saying our food was on the way and 2 hours after ordering we still have no Chinese food. Absolutely ridiculous. So sad this is what business has come to nowadays. Save your lies for another family. I would prefer to feed my 1 year old... More

Ugh, this was a takeout when we wanted chinese food. I ordered hibachi steak. So chewy and cheap cuts I could not eat it, spit out first bite. Soggy veggies in too much sweet soy sauce. It came as a combo with soup that was very unappealing since it was a horrible unnatural yellow color,one tiny taste and it was... More

I was on a fishing trip and stopped at The Paper Crane. I was very reluctant to order the General Tsou, (sorry for the miss spelling,) because it usually has been served soggy at buffet restaurants. But not here! My mouth was so happy when it came out covered in a glaze. It was slightly crunchy, then chewy, a little... More

We went for lunch, got the szchwan shrimp with white rice and an egg roll x 2 and it was under $16. There was a perfect size portion, sweet, and spicy, nice fresh veggies too. We enjoyed it. I'm not sure if the other reviews were taken into consideration by the management, but we had a great experience, and will... More

Worst Chinese take out ever. First what place doesn't take debit cards over the phone?? Only credit cards ??? Crazy!! My sesame chicken and yellow dried pork rice was funky and the sauce was thick too thick. My boyfriends Mongolian beef was like they dumped a pound of spices in it. Way too hot. Seriously go to McDonald's you'll be... More
