The atmosphere may be grim but the pot stickers and General Tso's chicken is the best in town. However, you do have to ask for the hot chili oil or they just bring a soy sauce mixture. Great food though.

First impression...Floor and tables DIRTY !!! Second...Cold appetizers !!! Third ...The egg flower soup came with a Feather inside..Yes a feather !! When the feather was pointed out by my wife the staff/waitress seemed to appear bothered and disbelieved that our claim was valid. She referred us to her boss and said" I can't do nothing about it." The food smelled good, but ultimately our appetites vanished. So Long Chinese Village.. Clean your act up!

I love the authentic feel of this restaurant. The dragons on the ceiling are so cool! The food is awesome and the prices are pretty average. The BBQ beef and fried shrimp are the best!

Two of my sisters have had weddings here and they've both gone pretty well. The banquet room is kinda small though and when you're trying to make your rounds, it's hard to get around. The food is really good, though!

Awful food would some up the culinary attributes of this restaurant. I have eaten there three times beacause of convience and never had a good meal. While some of the dishes were alright others were unedible. If you are stuck in the area waiting for the #15 bus like I am sometimes go to McDonald's. The food will be better.

If you are drunk and/or have your lungs full of smoke or like to do lots of meth, the this grease pit is for you, I have seen people huffing in the bathroom. The food is the worst, I don't drink, but I have heard that you get lots to drink at a reasonable price, but isn't it like saying eat at the liquor store? You can get much better chinese food at 7-11

Cons: food, price, food, food, food

Myself by reviewing this restaurant twice, but I can't help myself. This is the best Chinese food for the dollar (certainly better than Wong's King or other touted Chinese fare throughout Portland), you can ever find. Old-fashioned, and that's the way Chinese food should be. So, it's greasy. So, there's smoke in the restaurant. Go back to California and take your regulations with you. And my wife and I regularly sit in the bar to eat so she can smoke with her meal, and we have never seen any indecency there, except for a few senior citizens overly gambling on the poker machines.
To get back to the food, it's fantastic. The best Egg Foo Young in Portland, the only other restaurant I can compare it to is Hong Chow's in the Moreland area, which has, unfortunately, long since closed. The decor in the restaurant is something to be treasured, not ridiculed. Everything is too bland nowadays, this restaurant stands out, and I shall stand by it. Still the best hot Chinese mustard in town.

Pros: Excellent food, pricing, decoration of restaurant, they've kept that eye-catching neon sign!

Cons: 82nd avenue. 'Nuff said there. But that's not their fault!

CV is good for take out. I recommend the sweet/sour anything. Hubby like CV fried rice, kids like low mein.
Agree with the observations about the bar patrons. Be brave and order take out.

I just happen to live nearby, and being a night owl means that I try to find decent places to satiate that late night food craving. Fast food just doesn't do it for me, so finding a nearby chinese place is like stumbling onto a treasure chest. The food is decent, I know I've already used that word three times, but its the truth. It beats the Fred Meyer deli chinese and is much better than greasy heat lamp burgers or top ramen. The decor is just about silly with the 70's shiny classic chinese 'moving' waterfall scenes and gilded dragons. There is a lounge, but it even sounded too scary for me to venture into. lots of late night stoners and drunks looking for some grub before, or just after last call. What can you really expect in the middle of the night on 82nd???? it's worth a try.

Pros: decent food, decent prices, late night eats!

Cons: drunks, stoners, and psychos late at night [and I wouldn't want to see it in daylight....]

This restaurant has some of the best Chinese food in Portland. Everytime I go here, I don't order from the "family dinner" specials. Generally, that food is greasy and tasteless and very Americanized (caters to white people taste). Instead, I highly recommend ordering from the family style dinners. The hot and sour soup is the best anywhere. A downfall to this restaurant, however, is how smoky the atmosphere is because of the adjoining bar. Another thing is that there are usually parties singing loud and bad karaoke on any given weekend. Also, the bathrooms are a little scary because the drunken people share the same one and the sober restauranters and I wouldn't recommend allowing any children under 18 to go in there alone. My 12 year old sister nearly got all her hair cut off once by a drunken bar woman. In summary, the food here is great, but I'd highly recommend takeout unless you don't mind second hand smoke or loud karaoke or random barfights breaking out into the restaurant (something I've witnessed more than once).

Pros: Food, how fast the food comes

This food is fantastic, prepared the way Chinese is supposed to be, and on top of that, it's not all that expensive, except for the BBQ pork (this is pricey in all Chinese restaurants; I have yet to understand why), and the seating is fabulous, with tons of private booths, along with a bar for cocktails before dinner.

While the service wasn't bad, and there's actually something to be said for the 1970's-type Chinese decor, this was the worst Chinese food I've had in the United States. One or two dishes were just OK, but honestly, others were not reasonably edible. None of it was very Chinese -- almost like someone who had seen pictures of (but never tasted) Chinese food was doing the cooking.

I visited here on the recommendation of a friend. Perhaps we made an unfortunate menu decision, but we had egg rolls which were very very greasy and may have contained Cream Of Mushroom soup, and some other very very greasy dishes, except for the Subgum Chow Mein, which was not exceptional, but not really flavorful either. It tasted like an artistic interpretation of chinese food by someone who had never actually eaten any. However, the value was good, we got a lot of greasy food for our dollars.

Your typical Chinese restaurant in appearance, but the food does not rate well. While prices are comperable to other similar family-style places, and the portions are fairly large, the quality leaves a lot to be desired. Heavy on fried foods, which may not be obvious from the menu. I definitely advise against the duck, which was shredded and took on the look and feel of a tuna fish sandwich. It was then encapsulated in batter and fried (like almost everything else brought to us). The egg rolls are twice the size of most, but laden with grease.

I those AYCE Chinese buffets were more like this, I'd eat at them every day. This food is fantastic, prepared the way Chinese is supposed to be, and on top of that, it's not all that expensive, except for the BBQ pork (this is pricey in all Chinese restaurants; I have yet to understand why), and the seating is fabulous, with tons of private booths, along with a bar for cocktails before dinner. For people who really like privacy--eat in the bar. This place also seems to have the best hot mustard in town. Fantastic Chinese art on the walls. I'll be back here next week.
