We had not been to the China Inn in many years, so when we were looking for a change in Chinese food, we thought we would give it a try. There were 4 in our party and not a one of us was happy. We ended up leaving there and hitting up another restaurant that had food we could eat.... More

We like going here for lunch because you get a decent portion of food. They have really good General Tso's chicken and I really like the Kung Pao Shrimp. Their hot and sour soup is the best I've had.

Here is a comfy place to meet and visit while enjoying great hot and sour soup, lots of entre choices, egg rolls and crab Rangoon, very good hot Chinese tea, and ample parking on Green Street, Crawfordsville, Indiana.

I think this probably a great place, but I just caught them late? I went in 30 minutes before closing and asked if I had time and they said sure. I got my food quickly, but the meat was inedible. it was completely burned beyond recognition and so chewy that I couldn't eat . However the rice was still delicious.... More

Food fair, certainly not inspired - but this is small town USA and we are eating chinese. Restaurant has a smell of fried food/grease. Waitress clueless. Prices reasonable.

The food was good. They had a problem keeping the helpings full on the buffet as the place was busy. Next time I will order from the menue. The service was very slow.

If you want anything, that is anything left out of a dish or added to the dish, they can do that! Not like the many china buffets where all the food seems the same...

I don't believe you should ever have to ask for something more than 3 times! The food was just ok. Declined the buffet as it did not even look or feel it was appetizing despite the table full of policemen that were enjoying? it.

We love to go on sushi night - we've enjoyed everything we've ordered! Their regular menu dishes are also very good!

This is a nice comfortable eatery. Nothing fancy. The hot and sour soup is by far the best I have had. Prices are reasonable and the service is usually very good.
