My wife and I ordered Singapore Rice Noodle. It is great. My wife loves it a lot. We also like the Honey Walnut Shrimp, the style is a little bit different, but loves to try new things. Exceed our expectation.

(801) 756-6560 648 E State St American Fork UT 84003 A friend of ours told us about this restaurant, that it has a new menu, and had a new name. No trouble finding it.

China Light sold the restaurant. I loved China Light, because they served Cantonese style food, what I grew up with. I will miss them. The new restaurant is Mandarin style. Mandarin style is OK, but not my favorite, not to mention there are many more Mandarin style restaurants to choose from. Having said that, the new restaurant is very good,... More

I can't find sub gum chow mein anywhere except China Light. I love the combination dinners. The sweet and sour chicken or pork are so good. I love the sweet and sour sauce. The place needs a good cleaning and the bathroom needs some repairs but I can look past that. If we want Chinese food, this is where we... More

We love China Light's Cantonese soup....my kids ask for it when they are sick (instead of chicken soup). Menu is quite large, reasonable and fair prices for the amount of food you receive. Friendly service is always a plus!

This food was horrible. The orange chicken or the fried rice did not taste..normal. The service was great but the restaurant needed to be CLEANED. Don't waste your money.

Excellent Chinese food! Great variety, and have enjoyed everything I have ever had there. This time it was orange peel beef and sesame chicken. I particularly like their hot and sour soup! The service is great and fast; you don't wait for food or water (the true test of service).
