Stopped in when we were driving past Effingham on a long road trip. China Express is "downtown," but it doesn't take long to get there from the interstate--and it was worth the trip for us. The food was hot and fresh, and the tofu was great. They certainly didn't skimp on portions--my wife and I could have easily split one... More

Delivery was fast. Food was good and warm. Moo Shu Pork filling very good, wrappers did not hold together well. Dumplings were great. Egg Rolls very tasty.

Best Chinese food in town. This is a carry out restaurant. The food is excellent and you get plenty for your money. I have always been happy with my orders and my mom always want to go there when she is in town.

Once again found ourselves in Effingham for the night en route to elsewhere along the Interstate and wanted to try something new/other than Firefly Grill. It was a beautiful evening so drove to the downtown area, just a couple of miles and @ 5-10 minutes south of the the Interstate. There found China Express. It had great reviews on Trip... More

We're on the way to indiana from St. Louis and wanted some Chinese food. Search on tripadvisor and read great reviews about it. It's a very simple place, most of take-outs. The owners were very kind, friendly and attentive. The food was very fresh, good and reasonably priced. Worth it a try.

Don't judge a book by the cover as their appearance does not indicate the quality of the food. Had the four seasons and asked for it spicy. It was enough food for two and was just the right amount of heat. They do not have restrooms but they do have great food.

When I want Chinese and I have limited time, I call up China Express. They take my order, and by the time I drive there it is ready for pick-up. They also have delivery, but I have never tried that service. My favorites are egg drop soup, hot and sour soup, and chicken fried rice. Their soups are the best!... More

The food was very good, a tad on the pricey side. The staff was very helpful and polite. I am sure I will eat there again.
