We were a party of 12 and were seated at two adjacent round tables. We ordered several Chinese food dishes and ate family style. No one dish in particular stood out but at the same time, everything was tasty and I left full. Place is pleasant inside and conveniently located.

I certainly would eat here OVER AND OVER but wasn't it for a few things. The drinks are all horrible HORRIBLY EXPENSIVE AND small. I DON'T LIKE MAIN DINING ROOMS...but they will change you. During my trip, I taught my suite man all the man things he will ever have to know. He turned up "suite". All was well

Had really good sushi and the staff was very nice and polite! The decor inside is very welcoming and the bar area is very nice. The lighting is pretty dim but other than that it was great. Would go back here again!

We searched and only found CP kitchen opened for a Christmas evening dinner. In town only for the night, we just wanted to relax and enjoy a nice meal. The place was very crowded, we had to wait a long time to get served a drink at the bar, and once we did we decided to eat at the bar,... More

No hot towels. Menu... More

My sisters and I traveled to China and the food here is so authentic. We always have the Chile Serano Chicken and the aromatic shrimp because they have so much flavor it's beyond great. The hot and sour soup is so good too!

The one photo that is currently shown is not accurate. I've worked across the street for 7+ years and It's never looked like that so please don't look for the building pictured. CP kitchen has revamped itself from it's old China Place days. They have an outdoor patio (albeit on noisy PCH) with TVs for games and they have what... More

Couldn't quite get a clear answer on what the actual name of this place is. Just says CP on the sign outside. Anyway, the food was good portions and delicious. The crackling rice soup was really good and I ordered the "Aromatic Shrimp" which was really well done also. Nice seating area to the left of the entrance. There are... More
