We enjoyed several basic chine dishes that were well prepared and tasty: General Tso chicken, sweet and sour chicken, pork fried rice, lo mein and egg rolls. The prices were reasonable and the staff friendly.

While Number One China might not offer the BEST Chinese food I've ever eaten, it offers consistently good food at reasonable prices. Take out doesn't take long to prepare, and orders are always packed correctly. One suggestion: improve the quality of chicken used in your noodle soup. It is fatty, and tough.

Egg rolls were stale and very greasy, chicken was tough and all dishes were very greasy and tasteless. Went there because of reviews. Think they have friends who write them

After eating Chinese takeout in different states and countries, this food is always my basis for comparison. After moving, I always have to come when I am in town for a visit. The staff have always been so polite, and when I used to order quite frequently, the lady would always know what I wanted. They have, hands down, the... More

This is some typical Chinese food. Anywhere in America you could get the same because it's ordered in large plastic bags from some Chinese Food Central Supply. However, the oil in the woks tastes fresh enough. The restaurant (yes, a hole int he wall) is clean enough. The staff is courteous. There is steady traffic around dinner time of people... More

While it's true that every town has a Chinese takeout place, Black Mountain's Chinese takeout place is the best. The food is excellent, and I always look forward to going there. Number One China is quick, not too pricy, delicious, and has certainly earned its title, "Number One China".

This place used to be the best takeout in town. The last 2 years it has changed drastically. The service is still fast and very friendly but the food isn't nearly as good as it used to be. The chicken is tough and hard to chew. Which tells me they have changed the brand and down graded in the process.... More

I usually judge a chinese restaurant by its sweet and sour pork. Well, we ate in at one of the few tables and it was brought out on a plate with only the meat (battered, of course). The sweet and sour sauce was brought out in a small foam container. All there was on the plate was the pork with... More

It may not be the absolute best I've eaten but I've been twice a week for a month so I'm not complaining one bit. It's a family run business and service is always fast and friendly. If you've seen one Chinese take-out menu you'll be familiar with theirs. If you're like a former president and don't like broccoli for some... More

I have lived in Black Mountain for years, and I get takeout from No. 1 China at least once a week. The food is always fresh, flavorful and reasonably priced, and it is prepared quickly and accurately. They are always so busy that I often wonder how they keep up their quality. I have never once been disappointed.
