Great place to eat, hang out for a cocktail or pickup a carryout. The food was fantastic and the owner you can tell takes great pride in his food. I sat at the bar to eat. Very little smoke and the service was perfect.
Reliably Good Food, Great Atmosphere.
I traveled from the East side of Detroit to experience exceptional Chinese Cuisine @ the China Cafe. The atmosphere and freshly prepared Chinese Cuisine was fantastic. I did not realize how the food could differ in such a wonderful unique way. My meal was prepared fresh and made to order with fresh vegetables & other fabulous ingredients. This was the best Chinese Cuisine I have ever experienced, the staff was exceptional and the pride taken was apparent by the food, service and establishment. If you are looking to experience great Chinese I highly recommend the China Cafe in Novi ( You Won't Be Disappointed)!
Forget What You Think You Know About Chinese Restaurants!
If you have never tried China Cafe, you owe it to yourself to do so! But be prepared, this restaurant completely redefines the 'Chinese restaurant' experience. From the comfortable, contemporary decor to the elegant execution of the dishes, this place has never disappointed. My husband is an excellent cook himself, so it is very difficult for us to find a place that really offers us an outstanding experience at a reasonable price. He never turns down an opportunity to visit China Cafe, even though it's about 25 miles away from our home! Always ask about the specials. They use interesting ingredients - egg plant, Chinese basil, delicious ginger coconut sauces -and the quality of expertly prepared vegetables, meat and seafood is always impressive. We are excited about their brand-new menu. Above and beyond the outstanding quality of the food are the people. The wait staff are extremely polite and attentive, and go out of their way to make everyone feel welcomed. They make a point of trying to really get to know their customers as individuals. Everything combined makes eating at China Cafe an excellent experience!
Best chinese Around.
Just went there tonight and I was impressed! I was skeptical due to some of the bad reviews on here but was persuaded to go check it out and was pleasantly surprised! Orange chicken was great as was the fried rice soup and the service was great. Orange chicken was 10.95 for a TON of all white meat chicken and I loved each piece so much I appeared pregnant on the way out haha. Check this place out!Always pop into China Cafe when I'm in the Twelve Oaks Area. I'm never disappointed!
I have frequented China Cafe for several years now, for three reasons: their service, the food and its value. To me, a great chef is defined by his sauces. This is what separates Kelly Chang's food from the other Chinese restaurants in town. From the savory oyster sauce with his sea bass, to sweet , or the spicy five pepper shrimp, it's tough to choose from the menu, so I often ask Kelly to surprise me. I used to go to Windsor for this quality. The owners are great hosts, but I always feel welcomed by his friendly staff, who know my kids names and always ask about them when we visit. By the way, ask him if he found anything special on that day's shopping for fresh entrees. You might be surprised by talapia or spare ribs that aren't on the menu! Not just a great Chinese restaurant, a great restaurant period.
Best Beef Fried Rice we’ve had!
After reading numerous reviews here on CitySearch we decided to give it a try on a whim one day. We were in the area and stopped by for some takeout. This place was HOPPING, it was a Friday evening around 5:30pm. The phones were ringing off the hook, it was unbelievable. Looked like a call-center for a large corporation! It only took about 20 minutes to get our carry out order (not bad considering!), and when we got home we started feasting. The food was absolutely delicious, and the price was very reasonable. Our family of 4 made 2-3 meals out of this, and the total bill was ~$30.00. As others have before, I would highly recommend this place - Easily the best tasting Chinese I've had in the area, the Beef Fried Rice was excellent and the General Tso's chicken was very unique (and good I might add!).
Great Chinese Food and Very comfortable.
Fantastic service and a great place to have few cocktails and a bite of food with the many regulars that frequent the bar every night.
The Best in Every way.
I found China Cafe to be the best tasting Chinese food I've found in the states. The wait-staff was more than friendly from entry to exit, always attentive but not bothersome. The food was plentiful (I've never left without a doggy-bag), and the taste was beyond expectations. The atmosphere is warm and friendly. I highly recommend China Cafe to those who are looking for value and great Chinese food with efficient service.
Chinese and Food like no other.
To me there is no other Chinese restaurant to go to. The food is the best I've tasted, ever. Don't get me wrong, I still like to grille a juicy steak on my own, but you really have to eat this food to be able to describe it. The taste of the various dishes leaves your palette and appetite fulfilled to the max. As a sales rep also, I have used China Cafe for events. Besides these accounts asking specifically for China Cafe again, they also visit the restaurant on their own driving many miles to get there. The wait staff are very diligent about keeping you satisfied, from when you walk in, to keeping your glass of cola filled. The cost is moderate, I feel below what this restaurant could charge. A must for those looking for a great meal.
The BEST on the WEST(side)!
I found China Cafe on Citysearch and realize it's rated high for a reason -- EVERYTHING is good here and the staff is super friendly. If you live far, the drive is worth the experience. The owners are right at the bar... you've gotta love that!
Definitely Worth The Drive!
We ate here tonight...and it was definitely worth the trip. We ate a late dinner, so the place seemed more like a bar with some tables...but it was a cute place. The waitress recommended the dinner for 4 for us..and it was more than enough for 5 people. The food was absolutely delicious! The hot and sour soup, crab rangoon's, mongolian beef, general tso's chicken, hawaiian chicken, and the chicken eggs rolls were some of the best (if not the best) that I have tasted. Needless to say, we will be back.
Best Chinese in Michigan
I went purely off of the reviews on city search even down to what people ordered and they were all right!
This is the best Chinese in the metro area!!! Not only is the food consistently good, the service is excellent and the owners are so welcoming! I wouldn't go anywhere else!
We Found Our New Chinese Restaurant
We are so very pleased with the meal we just had. The service was wonderful, the food was wonderful. There is nothing bad about this restaurant. I was so surprised at the prices, very reasonable.
Best in the Business
I've been here a few times and i have to say that this place is the best place to get great chinese food, and its hard to find it here in detroit. The food is savory and light, as opposed to most chinese restaurants. But the best part is the value. If you haven't checked it out, you definitely should if you live in the D.
Warm and friendly service, with great Asian hospitality. The food is delicious and the price is fair. Most Chinese restaurants do not have bars, it's amazing that China Cafe has one with good service .
