Perhaps ages ago one of the areas best kept secrets. An update is very necessary.... Both Trip Advisor and Yelp describe a gem of a place with a dining room. As of this week the establishment still accepts reservations...it has ONE table (no restroom). The...More

If you work or live nearby, give this family-owned location a try. Humbly speaking, we can care less whether a restaurant offers "authentic" anything, really. Frankly each place translates with their own style. In the end we simply want delicious meals consistently prepared with well-cooked...More

North China was once a grand restaurant and had incredibly good food. The Hunan Chicken was superb and so was the Peking Shrimp. It became a little hole in the wall many years ago but still had superb food. Five years since our last excellent...More

Soon to be catering only this place looks like a hole-in-the-wall take out joint. It IS most popular for take out but persevere for a parking space and take one of the 20 or so seats and tuck in to the huge variety of fabulous,...More

They have the typical Americanized Chinese food, but also have an extensive menu of real Chinese and Taiwanese items. I think this place is easily the best Chinese restaurant in the area. Not expensive, so it pays to be a little adventurous here.

I'm a purist about the Chinese food I eat. I used to eat at North China when they first opened, and after moving away and returning some years ago. We recently went in for dinner, and were dismayed that they gave up most of their...More

Had my first meal at North China restaurant on February 1, 2009, and recommend it highly. Despite the North China name, the menu includes numerous items from Taiwan and Hong Kong. There are many "homestyle" appetizers and dishes listed, too-- it would take numerous visits...More
