China Cafe

24299 Novi Rd
Novi, MI 48375

Despite being located in a strip mall, China Cafe is not run-of-the-mill Chinese fare. The setting is casual with a slightly upscale decor. You’ll find familiar dishes like General Tao’s and Mongolian Beef, but the flavors are clean, light and complex. Wash it all down with a cocktail from the full bar. Fans of the restaurant rave about the consistently stellar customer service.

    Golden Harvest in Warren by the Gm Tech Center is unsurpassed! On some Sunday afternoons, you’ll find many people waiting patiently in line to be seated in the (perhaps) 200-250 seat dining room for excellent “din sum” treats. Waitresses with shining carts circle the diners with carts of freshly prepared dishes. They bring steamed, baked, fried, soup, and “special” carts with tiny treasures for diners to see and select. A table of four might choose 10 or more Chinese treats to share and savor. A must for review and addition to this list!

    Without a doubt, China Cafe on Novi Rd. and Ten Mile in Novi, is the best in the Metro area for many of my family, friends, and co-workers. The owners have a great atmosphere, the staff is very hospitable, and the taste of the food is wonderful. All is well prepared and made with such attention to truly good taste and the highest quality. This is not some over fried – over breaded food with jello type gravy slathered all over it. Everything tastes fresh and amazing. I highly recommend the General Tzo Chicken with a lettuce wrap starter and some of their hot and sour soup.

    China Cafe on Novi Road just north of Ten Mile in the Pine Ridge Plaza has the best atmophere, the friendliest staff and the best food you will ever experience. Owners Kelly and Susan run the classiest business and will make you feel right at home every time you visit. The food is professionally prepared and is always fresh and superb.

    The link on the Kims restaurant (for their soup) opens up a diaper ad? What are they suggesting?!

    Thanks for the tip on China Cafe Larry and Jon. I’m seriously craving some General Tao’s now.
