Atmosphere and decor is beautiful. Everyone is friendly and efficient. Everything I’ve eaten there has been marvelous. Food is serviced hot and they don’t skimp on the amount.

The good was ok but not up to previous visits standards. The service was excellent and the staff was interested in pleasing us. I will go back again.

I have been here many times and the food is always delicious and very good service. My favorite is vegetable mu shu. You can call ahead for this as they run out sometimes. Daily lunch specials include soup and egg roll. Excellent quality.

Located in downtown Santa Maria, North China is the place for Chinese food. Parking can be a pain but it's worth it.

My first meal in my new home town on moving day and my birthday! Staff gave me extra cookies to celebrate my day, I was so tired I could hardly function. The food was very nice and tons of it. Cozy little place on Broadway.

Benchmark Traditional Chinese $$ North China is a Santa Maria standard. Very little changes here, and that is a good thing. Zero ambiance and who needs it? Clean, inviting, acceptable noise level. Friendly and considerate service; one or two staff struggled a bit with take-away...More
