Horrible food. The fried rice was actually white rice with scrambled eggs. It was also used as a filler. I ordered curry chicken what I got was vegetables less and sauce over an extra helping of rice, no meat. I asked for a shrimp

My office moved to the RTP area about 6 months ago. We order from here quite often and we have consistently been impressed with the quality of the food and the service. I've ordered over the phone and online. Ordering online works best,

Ordered Mangolian beef with fried rice and a cup of Hot and Sour soup. Soup was ok, although I found a piece of shrimp that didn't belong there. Mangolian beef was massacred. This is officially the worst I have ever had, and I've been

Going to this place reminded me of Chef Ramsey's experience on Kitchen Nightmares. They served me food that tasted disgusting to the palate. Not only were the spices awful, it was obvious the food was old, especially the chicken. I'm

Jan Pong is a delicious noodle soup. Served Chinese or Korean style. Lots of interesting seafood you don't typically see over here.

Pros: fast and tasty

.

Jan Pong (with red or white soup) is fantastic - delicious handmade noodles and tons of seafood/meat - easily a quart of soup! I recommend eating it in the restaurant - while they package the noodles/soup separately to go, it's just not the same. Their combinations are very reasonably priced with lots of choices. Their hot & sour soup is also one of my favorites. Even their sweet tea is good and they are very attentive to refills.

When we first moved to the triangle I was 5 months pregnant and ordered take out Cha Chang Myun every week for a month or two. They beat the Korean restaurants hands down. The owner is Korean and the wife is Chinese - they make the noodles fresh and it makes a world of difference. But my friends who like the less authentic American Chinese find their selections to be of poor quality and flavor. So you have to be choosy. Come here for the authentic and forget the other stuff. I think I'll stick to take out. Maybe a couple of years ago this restaurant looked nice but now it's VERY dusty and almost dirty. The condiment jars need replacing, the silverware is tinny, the bathrooms are scary and everything just seems to have a layer of dust on it. Now, I've eaten at worse places overseas, but here in America I am spoiled and want it to be clean! No matter what though, if you want authentic Cha Chang Myun - get it here and nowhere else. Just close your eyes or order take out. Happy Eating!

I visited this restaruant when they initially opened. Their food selections were good. Their service was above average and their prices where in line with other Chinese restaurants in the area. Location is not the best. It is located on the corner of a very busy intersection and parking is limited.

If you were to ever speak the most perfect food order it would sound something like this, "San Shan Jang Pong, Korean style, 5 times spicy". This is easily one of my top 5 favorite foods of all time. It is roughly 3lbs of seafood and vegetable soup/stew. The homemade noodles are the best part. This is the true reason Marco Polo went to china and has since been celebrated as a national hero. The vast array of animals included in this soup is staggering and includes the following: chicken, beef, shrimp, squid, scallops and sea cucumber. Toss in some broccoli, cabbage, carrots, garlic and green onions to round out the vegetable quota. And finally the broth, you have the option of ordering - in order of increasing spiciness - mild, medium or hot for the amateurs or levels 1-10 for people whose opinion matters. All of this comes together creating soup perfection. A heads up, level 10 will melt your face off and ruin your colon. I have never been to a wing spot that can even stand in the same room a level 10 Jang Pong. I have level 10 when I want to make a good impression on a date or attend social gathering later that evening. The item authentic items are located on the Chinese portion on the back of the menu. I work with a large group of Chinese people and all concur that the ?real? Chinese food is legit. The American Chinese food is mediocre at best. If you would like to better yourself as a human and become the person that others aspire to be, you?ll need to eat San Shan Jang Pong.

Was in the area on business and stopped by for one of those what to do night dinner, do the usual hotel restaurant that is over priced and many times not so good. Decided to venture out. Asked the hotel staff for recommendations and this place were first on the list. Well located, right in the heart of RTP. Reminded me of the family type restaurants that my family goes to all the time in CA, friendly, very accommodating and outstanding value, and most important great food. What?s interesting about this place is the food is very traditional type, not like many other Chinese restaurants where it?s become the fast food type, fried rice was great, the dishes were individually cooked with correct sauces, not the one type of sauce for all dishes; this is one of the few places that are still the real thing. I wish there was place like this where my family lives in CA. If I'm ever back in town for business or what ever the occasion, this place is on the list for must stop by.

With so many Chinese restaurants in the area, it is hard to find the best one. China Express is amazing and so far has beat all the local competition. We were seated immediately and service was prompt. For appetizers, the crab rangoon and wings are great. My friend and I, who are always a bit indecisive, asked the waitress about their specialties and she recommended the Jan pong. It was so good with homemade noodles and lots of seafood. Overall, really good food and service.

China Express has the best chinese food I've tasted in a long time. Coming from Vancouver, Canada - where the chinese food was exceptional - tasting the food here made me feel like I was getting a taste from back home (yes it is really that good at China Express). My favorite dish would be Jan Pong (hand made noodles in slightly spicy soup with generous portions of seafood and veggies mixed in). It's a must have. If you're looking for an appetizer, the spring rolls and the chicken wings are the best. The wings may look dark/overdone, don't let the look fool you, the are absolutely delicious (crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. The service is top of the line, they were very prompt in seating my party and were very attentive.

Our office ordered lunch to be delivered. We were never told of a delivery fee, which would have been fine, but we were not informed of prior. The driver did not know the cost of the items for payment and spoke poor english. The General Tso's chicken over battered and over cooked. The Szechuan Shrimp was not fuly cooked, and was explained that "was the type of shrimp". It was clearly uncooked, as it was still blue and grey, yet was told I was wrong. I asked for a refund, and they charged me for the eggroll that had been eaten since the shrimp was uncooked. The woman we spoke to was quite rude and unaccomodating. I will never eat here again. Raw, tasteless food and POOR customer service. I would highly recomment going to one of the other many chinese restuarants in the area.

China Express has five great things you don't always find in a Chinese place:
(1) English-speaking people taking your order;
(2) Accommodating menu (you can substitute soup for rice and veggies for eggroll if you're health-conscious);
(3) Tasty food that is not super-fried, and REAL chicken;
(4) $5 combination plates ALL the time (not just at lunch); and
(5) FAST delivery of the 100% CORRECT order ($1.50 charge) and they even deliver to Woodcroft!

We ordered the combination plates of Cashew Chicken and General Tso's Chicken. I thought they were great; my dinner companion (who always uses extra butter on everything) thought the rice wasn't "fried" enough. If you like deep-fried, high-fat chinese food, this place isn't for you. If you like delicious food that doesn't taste like grease, check this place out.

NOTE: I've only ordered via delivery, so I have no idea what the ambiance at the restaurant is like.

For over fifteen years, China Express has always been our favorite place to go whenever we are thinking about handmade Chinese noodles. If you are a noodle lover, you have to try their San Shan Jan Pong or San Shan Za Jan Mein.
