This place is awesome. Great food. Very fresh with plenty of leftovers. You order from a menu that insures the fresh quality.

It's a small restaurant,mbut beautifully decorated. The food was fresh and hot. The older gentlemen at the door is friendly, but our server was not. That was the only disappointing thing about our experience.

Have eaten here since they opened and it just keeps delivering quality Chinese (and I've lived all over the country) at great prices made any way I want. Fast takeout, fun little dining room just large enough for an intimate meal. Love this place!

The place looks clean and the food was good. Went for lunch and service was good. I think the wonton soup could have a little more taste. It was a little on the bland side. Sweet and sour chicken was good. The price is average. I will go back.

First time eating at China 1 came on several recommendations (due to the lack of anything good in Newport in the way of Asian fare) We were very happy with the friendly service, food and the speed of service at lunch time. Lunch prices are very good with large portions for the price. We will be heading back whenever we... More

When I work the Dandridge area, I have to include China 1 for at least one of my meals. I usually go for lunch. The lady that usually greets and seats is friendly and efficient. Soup or an egg roll comes out quick, well before your meal. I like their shrimp Lo Mein.

We get Carry out at least once a week. We live in Dandridge so It makes it very convenient to pick it up on the way home. Just for fun I try to change my order but I end up with almost always the same meal. My wife orders something different every time. MY most "flavorite" is the Szechuan Chow... More

I dine here fairly regularly. Rarely is there a large crowd, so service is usually quick (even for take-outs). I have gotten to know the staff well, and they can almost always anticipate what I will order, down to the drink. Usually the food is quite good, but on a few occasions it has only been fair. The rest rooms... More
