Doesn't look like much from the street but who cares about ambiance with food this good? You order from the counter and find a table. You can get a nice view of the lake in the back. The food comes in a few minutes. Big...More

This food is fine, not fantastic. Some dishes are good ( sweet and sour chicken, shrimp lo mein), some not so good ( Kung po chicken). The egg rolls are ok. There are not many option for Chinese food in Lake Placid, so this will...More

Quite an extensive menu and food tasted very well. Offers an alternative to many other places where vegetables are not on the menu.

This is basically a take-out joint serving strip mall Chinese food. We often eat Chinese food at home and this place is one we would not patronize. Food was greasy and barely adequate, and not all that cheap. But then again, it's on the main...More

This is the only place to go when craving good Chinese food. Love their won ton soup, as well as many of their dishes. Continue to try different dishes based on what the owner suggests, never steered me wrong, at least not yet!

China City always hits the spot for my cravings! They're quick and always friendly when I pick up my orders. I've never had an issue here and it continues to be one of my favorite take out spots, especially for their mai fun!

We will eat here sometimes before a movie. The restaurant is across the street from the Palace theater. Not the best Chinese food I have ever eaten, but quick and consistent. They are hard working and I always feel I have gotten a decent meal....More

I popped into China City for a quick lunch. It's your typical Chinese fast food-like place. It's very casual and has a pretty view. Typically I'd get take-out from a place like this. There is zero ambiance. I had one of the chicken lunch specials,...More
