Pretty Spartan décor and showing some wear. Still, good selection for very little money on the lunch buffet. Buffet includes beverages self serve. If something is out just mention it and they will replace it quickly. They do most of their dinner business in take out and are quick. My food has always been hot and tasty. Smaller restaurant but...

For our small town, this is a really good place to eat. The food is good, the price is excellent. If you dine in, you will eat off of styrofoam plates, but hey, it keeps the prices down.

We went there, are were initially "put off" by the size and sparcity of the "dining room". We went ahead and ordered, and the food was really good. If you order take out, you won't be disappointed. If you eat in, be prepared for a minimal experience

You know that night you just can't think of anything for supper, or you are just too tired to cook? That is the night you call Number One Chinese Restaurant and order delicious food in generous portions. We keep the menu handy and order our favorites. Usually we order the larger quantities, knowing the generous portions will provide lunch or... More

I love this place and have for years. The teriyaki chicken on a stick is the best I've ever had. Prices are excellent and owners are really nice. Love this place!

Service is ok but the we had a party of 8 and when we moved the tables together there was rust and dirt all over where the table had been ( this table was not one in the back but... More

Every month or so we make a trip to No.1 Chinese restaurant for take out. Our usual order for my wife is the pork chow mein and mine is the shrimp chop suey. Food has always been great, well prepared, large amount and great taste. We will continue to stop monthly for the real thing.

They have a buffet but I think it's priced too high. I always get the Beef and Broccoli take out and it's the best. The people that answer the phone and the ones at the restaurant are kind of hard to understand but they always give good service.
