The New China Super Buffet is great. It is very clean also. It has plenty of parking. We held a party there and had a great private room. Chan's, I love the music. If you can leave the big city, travel up 3450 Mendon Road, Cumberland. The "Great Taste" Chinese Restaurant has great take-out food and low prices. The portions are large.

In the city, I think Chan's is good, especially on Jazz nights. If you head a bit south to Cumberland, Jackie's Galaxy is really good, plus they serve some of the best sushi I've had. Really good, great service, and a good location.....

I don't go to the Dragon Garden anymore due to the large gangs hanging in front and to the side of the entrances. They have spit on the ground as we have passed and there have been times when we were offered drugs. We now go to the New China Super Buffet. The atmosphere is good and the food is always delicious. For special occasions, we go to Chan.s

We go to Asia Grille in Lincoln before any of these places, including Chan's. Sorry, but none of those even come close.
Louis October 22, 2011 at 01:22 PM
I would never eat at any of these places, nasty!
Becky October 22, 2011 at 05:08 PM
They are all nasty...cross contamination. Did you ever watch them cook?

King Wok has the best Chinese food in Woonsocket, but it's really just a take-out place. The Thai place across from Chan's has great food, too.
