It's weird that this little place off of Ventura Blvd in Studio City is the best Chinese I know of, but it is. Just don't tell anyone because I don't want it to get too crowded. What stands out here if not only the high quality meat in the dishes-no jangly pieces of fatty bad quality chicken or beef here.... More

Its hard to find a Chinese Restaurant that is a step up from the usual in terms of quality. This one does it. We ordered beef and asparagus, where the beef was tender with a generous portion of fresh, tender, perfectly prepared asparagus. The garden shrimp comes similarly hearty. I asked to have the tofu and vegetables prepared MA PO... More

I've visited Green Apple China Bistro probably twice a month for 5 years -- and have never had a bad meal or experience. Decor is pleasing, modern, clean and comfortable -- casual but they utilize cloth napkins. You often see the same people as the clientele has built up over time and there are numerous 'regulars' there often. Very friendly... More

Tasteless, many ingredients missing in the dishes. I've been a love of Chinese food for over 40 years, I've worked and traveled all over asia. I tell you stay away form this place if you don't want to waste your money and time.

Whilst the food is better than a lot of Chineses, unfortunately, they are in breach of USA standard trading laws. Their online menu does not state whether tax is included in the menu price - as of July 1 2014, this is a necessary requirement, otherwise the price is as stated. Neither do they state anywhere on the menu that... More

On food quality, freshness and taste have to give this restaurant a top review. The decor is simple and the ambience ok, but having eaten in NYC in my younger days and having had Chinese food in many cities, the three of us had most enjoyable entrees. The green beans, garlic fried rice, lo mein, were well prepared, perfect temperature... More

We recently had dinner at the Green Apple. It was OK, nothing special. The house fried noodles with mixed ingredients were the best dish. Everything tasted fresh. The sweet and sour chicken and orange chicken were both made with the same breaded chicken nuggets that tasted frozen and were dry as cardboard and, except for the sauces, tasteless. This is...

The food was quick and tasty but nothing special. A little greasy and not top notch but what you'd expect from the cheap prices.
