    The food is delicious and the vegetables are fresh. The broth is light and favorable. We ordered the Seafood fillet stir fried w/ wine sauce, Fish fillet w/ mixed vegetables, and the combination Won Ton Soup. The other great thing about this place is there's a room for a mini party and can be rented out.

    They can use an upgrade with the interior.

    The bathroom is clean and there's soap in the soap dispenser. It is also very spacious.

    Had the prawns fried rice $10 for rice??? Not seasoned hardly any shrimp or vegetable.
    The house chow mein was just ok not worth the $11
    Would not recommend

    Rounding down to 3 stars. My generation (gen Y? Millennials?) treated our elders to a Chinese New Year lunch. 34 people spread across 3 large tables.  Each table had a $158 banquet style family meal plus we added a dish of catfish in black bean sauce as fish is customary in a CNY meal.

    The food is quite decent. The fried dishes especially were very flavorful: crispy chicken and Peking style spareribs (more or less sweet and sour sauce). It's almost unfair to compare against the restaurants in areas such as San Francisco and South Bay, which are much more heavily Chinese populated, but compare I must. The Peking duck and the black pepper beef were ok, but not on par with something you'd get in above referenced areas.

    Interestingly, there was a blackout mid-meal. Even more interestingly, the food kept coming out during the blackout. A few of us turned on our phone flashlights  and propped then on top of the glass cups for some mood lighting. The electricity came back on about 15-20 minutes later. I do commend the staff for working through the blackout without missing much of a beat.

    Overall recommendation - worth going if you're looking for fairly decent Chinese food and you're in the area.

    I've given this place too many chances...
    Today I had won ton soup and kung pao chicken with chow mein.

    Won ton soup- plain, flavorless broth. If you want won ton soup, I guarantee Sala Thai on Richmond Parkway is 100 times better.
    Unfortunately, today's won ton soup from China D was so flavorless.

    Kung pao chicken lunch special w/chow mein-  the chow mein was very plain.. noodles, soy sauce, one bean sprout and 1 green onion. The kung pao chicken was old. The chicken was not good and tasted very old. And, as you can see from some of my other reviews.. I'm not picky.  But, I can taste old chicken when it's in front of me.  The zucchini and peppers were fresh and the peanuts were nice. I had to throw this out.

    Oh, and no fortune cookies given with an $80 order today.

    I'm tired of cheap.

    Too many chances, too many disappointments.

    China Delights raised their prices and got a new WORSE chef.  I paid 14.50 for honey walnut prawns and got a few small shrimp that were poorly battered and came with some sour yellowed sauce.  I went to Happy Wok today in Rodeo and paid only 10.50, 4 dollars cheaper for much bigger and more walnut prawns and authentic sauce!  At China Delights, I ordered their beef chow fun which was cooked very poorly and covered in nothing but soy sauce.  It was a brown colored mass of noodles with poor quality beef!  Almost 30 dollars for two horrible dishes.  Never coming back ever.
