I always order the PoPo plater because it has everything you need for Chinese Food. I also think you should get the Sherlie Temple.

I know I can count on China Coast to deliver hot, freshly-cooked dishes that taste great and really hit the spot. I've never had any issues with the food or service in all the years I've been eating here. I know exactly what to expect and they never disappoint!

I've never been partial to this restaurant but it's the only Chinese nearby. I break down twice a year figuring that they must have improved. WRONG!!!! I ordered Roast Pork Egg Foo Young. The congealed mess that they called sauce/gravy was the most disgusting thing that I've ever seen served on a plate. Absolutely inedible. The best thing I can... More

I would advise the buffet which is only for lunch, but it is 7 days a week. It is around $9.00 per person. They have some very tasty food BUT the items of the buffet go very very fast and they do not seem in that much of a hurry to re-fill. Other then that the place is a great... More

Food was very good... Flavorful and plentiful... We wanted something besides New England seafood tonight and this was a good choice .. Portions were large! Service was very good.. Our waitress was super sweet and food was served quickly!

meal started off on a good trend with excellent fried wonton. Perfectly made. But then.. Waiter recommended the crispy duck (interestingly the most expensive on the menu). It was not crispy but soggy and fatty. It had little flavor. Service poor. Waited 5 min to be seated, finally took a table. Waiter came and ok until food served. Never saw... More

First time ordering from China Coast. The food was ready in under 15 minutes and was excellent. My favourite thing in the world is Crab Rangoons and they made them perfectly. The right amount of filling, and Delish! We ordered the Pu Pu for two, and there was plenty of food, and only $20. The Chinese ribs were larger than... More

Upon arrival, the hostess realized I had called a few minutes earlier. They were SO accommodating to what I wanted that it was all customized to my liking! BRAVO!

Stopped in for lunch on a Friday around 1pm. We were just passing through Rockland and stopped in at the local mall and noticed this restaurant and decided to give it a try. Typical Chinese restaurant for a shopping mall. Young staff, not overly friendly, other then hello and what do you want to drink we were not spoken too.... More

This is a good place for a fast lunch. You can take out an order from the buffet for a price per pound.
