Located in downtown Santa Maria, North China is the place for Chinese food. Parking can be a pain but it's worth it.

My first meal in my new home town on moving day and my birthday! Staff gave me extra cookies to celebrate my day, I was so tired I could hardly function. The food was very nice and tons of it. Cozy little place on Broadway.

Freshest possible, local sourced veggies always cooked properly (slightly crunchy, not over cooked). A good selection of standards, properly prepared for American tastes. Service slow because always fresh cooked...No stream table dried meats! Costs more but worth it as serving size is large and quality...More

The owner is so friendly as well as all the staff. It’s family owned and everything is made from scratch! They have many amazing vegetarian versions of classic Chinese recipes. Love, love love this place!!!
