This has been our choice for Chinese take-out for years. There doesn't seem to be anything unique or special about the place, but the food is generally good and the portions generous. The menu large and the staff will make requested substitutions/omissions whenever possible. There are a couple of tables inside that might do for a quick lunch, but this... More

For me, it's really hard to screw up the basics but China Inn somehow managed to do that. We ordered fried dumplings, combo fried rice and combo lo mein. We could barely eat the fried rice, threw away most of the lo mein and found the dumplings to be virtually inedible. I have no doubt that others have had a... More

the decoration is not good. Restroom is very basic and not clean. People are not friendly. Food is good but not sure it is clean.

Moving to Pittsboro, I was slightly distressed by the lack of Asian food options. This is pretty much it for the area. I was pleasantly surprised by our first take-out experience. Solid strip mall Chinese, kinda leaning towards mall Chinese. The egg drop soup was great, and hot, and they have the good wonton strips, not too think or stale.... More

This is your typical 'mostly to go' chinese joint. They do have three or four tables; one is usually occupied by the owners pré-teen kids doing homework. In the summer they don't use the a/c and in the winter the heat from the cookers is it. So definitely not your 'bring the family to dine in' place. But the food... More

We've ordered take out form this place now on three different occasions. I've had no complaints. I like their fried rice and chicken dishes. I also think they are reasonably priced. We have ordered general tso's chicken and sweet n sour chicken here and they both were good, we will go back.

There is nothing worse in a restaurant then getting raw food you can mess up many things when your food comes raw you're trying to make your customers sick argue afterwords with you customer saying no the red in the chicken is cooked is the way it is done but it was raw if it was any more raw it...

China Inn is your standard (almost chain like) Chinese eatery. Self service at the counter where you circle your selection on a big paper menu. There are a few tables but it appears most folks get their food to go. I'm sure you've been to a similar place in your town. They don't do anything wrong but there nothing special... More
