Rated 2 out of 5 by The food was good and our server was very polite. They were just very understaffed today. She was serving te entire dining room. Jul 10, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Slow day there, average food and service, less than their usual. Still will go back. Jun 25, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by The food and service are good. Plenty of it, too. Jun 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by It has been a while since we were here. We have to go more often. Great food. Great owner! Jun 21, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Marvelously courteous service by a slightly shy yet friendly and helpful waitress. We loved the asparagus with beef. Potstickers looked handmade and had great flavor but thicker than usual shells; sauce was spicy. Gen. Tso's chicken was dark, rich, sweet, could have used a balancing vinegar nip. Room was dark and bland but clean and pleasant, with low-key classy art. Jun 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by General Tso chicken is fantastic, as was Happy Family and the Sizzling plate. Couple we introduced to "our" place decided it will become theirs as well. Waitress was always there without being intrusive. We first went thru but did not use certificate until maybe 12th visit because prices are so reasonable - needed 4 adults to make it worth using!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Essence of China is an excellent Chinese restaurant. The hostess/hosts are professional & welcoming, the waitpersons are patient, calm, informative & helpful; a highchair was offered for my granddaughter before we even had to ask for one. The food is out-of-this-world awesome. The married couple that runs Essence of China does a grand job EVERY time anyone in my family eats there (takeout or dine-in). Highly recommended. Can't wait to dine there again. Jun 6, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by The food is soooo good. Ambiance is ok. May 17, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by The wait is usually a little longer because the place is small, as is the staff, but it is WELL WORTH THE WAIT. Everything comes out piping hot and no matter what new thing we try we LOVE it! The Orange chicken is the BEST though! I mean, THE BEST you will have anywhere. (In my opinion at least.) :) May 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by THE FOOD WAS EXCELLENT. May 3, 2014
