Stopped by for a quick lunch. Usual sultry service that expect from quick stop Chinese place. No biggie as long as food is good and it was decent. Some vegetarian options. Came out fresh and hot and flavors good.

I like that they deliver and when you get the food it is steaming hot! The prices are very reasonable; my favorite is Kung Poi Chicken (sp?)

I think this is the best Chinese food on the entire outer banks and have eaten half the stuff on their menu! Wonton Soup is great...Hot and Sour which is difficult to get right...is always right. This is just a hole in the wall with a few tables used mostly at lunchtime...but the family is always friendly and the food... More

Whether you want Take out or Delivery your food is generally ready in 15 minutes. Great Prices, good quality and huge portions. Some of our favorite things here are the Sesame Chicken, Crab Ragoons, & Boneless Pork Ribs!

I was a little skeptic about eating here but really loved their chicken and broccoli (special diet menu) and the sesame chicken. Enjoy!

This is primarily a carry out and delivery restaurant in Manteo. Everything is made to order, and they don't keep the kitchen hidden from view. It is fun to watch the cooks preparing dishes, and even better to enjoy what they have made.

OK, we are done with Top China. Over the past year, we have eaten there a few times and they never seem to get the order correct. The last time, I ordered Chicken with Cashews. I got Chicken with peanuts. Very serious mistake. Fortunately, I am not allergic to peanuts. We always order take out, so when you get home,... More

I consider their food a little bland and it is not always consistant. Unfortunately, they are the only Chinese food restaurant on the island. Wish they would add butterfly shrimp to the menu.
