Where the Chinese food lovers should go – We made reservations (smart thing to do) during peak dinner time at 6:30 PM and the larger tables for 10 were almost all gone. They have only a few tables for 4 and even less for 2. Clearly a popular, authentic place as the room was full of Asians. It was so reassuring to know we probably found a gold mine. Our 2 favorite dishes were the beef over bok choy and black bean sauce clams, both quite savory. The walnut prawns wasn't too bad but I've had better. The crispy chicken & shrimp chips was pretty good as well as the stir-fried flounder over mixed vegetables. I enviously observed other diners with lobster, fried rice and string beans and wish we were dining with a crowd so I could try those dishes as well. They have several family priced dinners depending on the amt of dishes listed in their menu and daily specials posted on the on the walls written on eraser boards instead of pieces of paper. There were several choices for claypot dishes which I've heard are good. The price was very reasonable, approx $50 for the 4 of us. What a bargain!
Great Chinese Food for a Great Price – China First is cozy inside and bustling with groups and families eating and having a good time. The food came quick and was delicious. The service was also very good: our waiter was friendly and brought us everything quickly. At the end of the meal, we were shocked to discover that after a ton of great food, the bill only came to 30 bucks for four people. I was very impressed by this friendly well priced Chinese restaurant.
China First is my First choice for Chinese on Clement – The restaurant doesn't look like much from the street (front window and door not too appealing), but once you step inside you'll find a comparatively clean restaurant. Fast, friendly, anc cheap! What a combo. Hooray.
try it – The food is good and prices are cheap. Good place to go with a crowd. Parking isn't the easiest to find in the evening, but the later you go, the easier it'll be. THis place isn't given enough credit.
