North China restaurant has vintage style and old world charm. Their food is more to the spicier chinese foods, but there are also milder dishes to choose from on their menu. Friendly staff, but be willing to wait for your feast- perfection takes time!

Service is attentive as soon as seated. The hot tea is placed before you and any questions of the menu are answered with full explanation. The menu is very extensive and filled with wonderful adaptations to the expected normal fare. Their years of business has developed a philosophy to ensure the décor and meal becomes special to you.

I have no complaints about this place. They have a very wide offering of food. All well done and tasty. I would have no hesitation about coming here again if we are in the area. While reading the menu, I had to try the Chinese Embassy Green Beans with pork. Excellent. I just wish I had more time to try... More

We have been coming since 1987. Same owners..watched their boys grow up and now operate the restaurant. All local and fresh produce hand chopped. For sure quality that we expect. The to go on a Friday night is a great idea !

This is a great place for family, friends, or date night. We go once a week and even more if I could! String bean chicken is my favorite. Chicken fried rice will make you crave it when you are too far from it. We feel like friend of the family that operates it, you will as well!

I have written hundreds of reviews around the world and almost always will find some reason to say positive things if I can. My wife loves Chinese and our favorite Chinese restaurant has gone out of business., I heard good things about North China so even though we had to drive ten miles to get there, we tried it. We...
