    I love this place!! We've been ordering from here for years and its always been very good. We've tried most things but the sesame chicken, egg foo yong and mixed vegetables are all really good. Their egg rolls are fantastic. I always order at least 2 for myself. I usually go to the store to pick my food up and the woman owner (Ping) is always friendly. She knows my order by heart and always asks how my family is doing. The restaurant could use a little update, but it is clean and I have never been grossed out looking into the kitchen. It's basic linoleum floors and cheap granite looking counters but its always sanitary.

    I bring every out of town visitor here and have never been disappointed. I've lived in Charleston for most of my life and this is the only Chinese food I order.  I recommend it to everyone!!

    Best Chinese I have had in mount pleasant to date ! The next on my list is bamboo garden but if I never make it to bamboo garden I will be fine with the 3 min drive across the street to China East any day! This place is quick, not much decor, but it comes hot and delicious! The dumplings are the BOMB! Filled with stuffing, herbs, and they are huge! The egg drop soup is also equally amazing - it contains big drops of egg although the fried little noodle pieces were a bit over fried for me but the soup is good so you don't need it. Finally I got the chicken and broccoli combination with pork fried rice. The fried rice is yellow which I love and it's hard to find these days. The bowl is packed and the chicken and broccoli are super fresh. This place was just the gem I was looking for.

    I have placed multiple orders from China East and more times than not the order is wrong.

    This most recent order I even made comments on their order page to please send me the correct item.
    I ordered sesame beef, pretty simple request I thought.

    The last time they sent me orange beef instead. Ok, it was close enough and tasted ok but this time they sent me sesame chicken.

    I called the restaurant and the woman who answered the phone yells at me saying no it is sesame beef.

    I have been eating Chinese food for over 40 years and I can clearly tell the difference between chunk white chicken and sliced brown beef.

    But the woman continues to yell at me and then tells at someone in Chinese who tells back in Chinese and then back to me to say "oh my God, you got beef"
    I'm sorry but I know what was in front of me and it was  clearly not beef.

    She wanted me to bring it to the restaurant so she could see. Clearly she didn't understand the idea of DELIVERY. I had it delivered for a reason I wasn't about to drive an incorrect order to the restaurant.
    The woman on the phone just kept yelling, you got beef, you got beef.

    Frustrated, I finally hung up and ate some of the chicken. It wasn't very good.

    If I could give zero stars because of poor attitude and incorrect orders I would but I will give 1 star because the food (when correct) is pretty good and the delivery person is very nice.

    I would recommend if you plan on eating from this restaurant you go and pick it up and check it before you leave with it.

    They microwaved my boneless ribs. And they were horrible. The rice was not edible it was really grainy and not good at all .

    Was looking for some food to be delivered to the hotel I was at and was given a menu to this restaurant. I was a little hesitant when I read the reviews but  I was hungry and didn't like the other option of pizza.  I ordered the chicken wing special with shrimp fried rice and a side of crab ragoon.  Overall I was satisfied with the food. I thought the shrimp fried rice could have been a little more flavorful and had a little more shrimp and veggies, but I've had worse.  Delivery was quick and the food arrived hot.  The price was very reasonable as well. I would order from here again.
