$15 for $30 Worth of Chinese Cuisine for Two or More People
Noodle and rice dishes such as roast-pork lo mein ($7.50) begin culinary trips throughout China, which can touch on meat dishes, such as sliced chicken with chinese mushrooms ($9.25), and regional specialties, such as the cantonese chow gui kew—breaded chicken with bamboo shoots and water chestnuts ($18.95).
China Inn Restaurant
China Inn Restaurant's menu is like a gustatory balloon ride over China, exploring different regions and culinary traditions to gain an understanding of the country's myriad subcultures. Cantonese-style dishes, such as sautéed lobster with a garden-fresh medley of snow peas, bamboo shoots, and water chestnuts, demonstrate favoritism for veggies, whereas the Sichuan and Hunan entrees re-create those cultures’ characteristic spices and chilies with incendiary sauces. Mu shi, a traditional Mandarin dish, presents diners with pork, shrimp, or beef and vegetables as well as four Chinese pancakes to scoop up and wrap each bite or envelop a love note to a date.
In contrast to the complexly assembled menu of pan-regional specialties, China Inn Restaurant's dining room embraces a more elegant simplicity. The airy space features a large, central skylight that allows ample sunshine to wash over tables and plates. Chinese pottery adds a distinctive and authentic touch to the decor, whereas leafy plants create a calming, natural ambiance and an ample supply of oxygen to last through the dinner rush.

“This is a full service restaurant - make reservations for Friday or Saturday night. A great place for a large party, order the 'family' meal for the number of people in your party - a tremendous value and a great way to taste what they have to offer. If you are well versed in chinese food, they have many specialties to offer. Their forte is Cantonese/Taiwanese style food, which takes great skill to make well. In business over 40 years, a mainstay of Pawtucket. ”
