"Better Choices in World Showcase"
Reviewed on Aug 21, 2012 by Cris P.
This is an okay place if you need a fast lunch, but there are so many other choices in the World Showcase that are better. We did find service to be very fast and effecient, but the food was just okay. The restaurant itself is lovely and quiet.
"yummy but the screeching?"

not too many options on their menu but i like the orange chicken. my only complaint with that is there was not enough sauce to cover the rice. i spreaded it out as much as i could but i ended up eating some plain white rice (blah) next time i may bring my own sauce to make sure theres plenty ha
but besides the food, i'm taking away a star for 2 reasons. one is there is covered outdoor seating which allows for birds to fly in to the eating area. i am NOT a fan of birds so i definitely don't like them flying around me when i'm trying to eat. and this isn't their fault but when i was there this woman put food on the ground encouraging the birds to come in. grrrr
the other reason i'm taking a star away (and i'm not sure they do this all the time or just when i was there that day) but when i was trying to view the outside menu before walking into the place, they yell at u from inside to come in and look at the menu instead of the outdoor one (clever way to get people in to buy things but i don't appreciate it. i would like to be able to view the outside menu THEN go in if i decide to order something) and while i was eating i heard them do it to everyone who passed by not just me. so other than that the orange chicken i had was yummy. give it a try!
"Good but lack of choices"

There are a couple of things to know about this one. There are limited choices and the orange chicken is the best option on the menu. The place is very clean and there is always someone around to keep it that way. If you eat Chinese take out at home then you will like this food ( more than the take out I would guess ). I wish the menu had a few more options. I will eat here again I am sure.
"Once was good :("

Their food used to be good, but the last time i was there a few months ago it wasn't good at all. The food used to remind me of Panda Express but much better. This time it was awful. They changed their sweet and sour sauce to one that tastes like ketchup mixed with sugar in a pan. The chicken breading was thin and soft, like corndog breading, and ohh the rice - don't get me started; it was like minute rice and was very hard. I am a chef and studied culinary arts so i know what i'm talking about. I really hope someone from disney reads this and changes it fast. If you're in the mood for Asian food, go to Japan's quick service restaurant. It was very good, well at least when i was there last.
Good luck everyone! *o*
"Good food, very clean"

This restaurant has to be the cleanest on property - I'm always amazed at how frequently and thoroughly they clean the tables. The food is good, Orange Chicken is particularly tasty, although possibly not very authentic to real Chinese food. Sometimes the food can be subject to standing around, and can lose it's freshness, but for a quick service counter restaurant, I would recommend it. One downside is that seating is outdoor only (covered), so no AC to escape into.

Another staple of the Kerby clan. I prefer this to Nine Dragons. All the food is top notch. Love the Orange chicken!!!

This is not a bad place but not an exceptional place either. If you want a quick bite this may fit the bill.
"GREAT FAST FOOD"

GREAT PLACE FOR A SNACK OR LUNCH QUICKLY. THE BEST EGG ROLLS EVER. GINGER ICE CREAM THAT IS MADE THERE DAILY IS OUT OF THIS WORLD.

If you want some quick Chinese food, this is the place to go. I love their Sweet and Sour Chicken. Theming and atmosphere is probably the least spectacular of all the EPCOT fast food restaurants, but the food makes up for it.

If you like fried rice, this is THE place to go in WDW.
