Decent for a quick bite. If your looking for quick Chinese sit down or take out then Spice China is for you. Not for the conisseur of Asian food as the 'spice' in Spice China is missing. Overall good flavor though and large portions. Good place to take children. Wide enough beer/wine menu for the price.
best in town. I admit I like PF Chang's because it is consistent. Not the best, but I can depend on it. Spice China is an excellent Chinese restaurant that challenges the palate with innovative dishes and great execution of standards. High quality, no steam tables, no buffet. The spicy dishes are indeed spicy, the sauces are not gloopy corn starch puddings, and the fried items are not soggy. Not only is it better than Chang's but you rarely have to wait.
Who'd have thought?. In Colorado, the pickings are slim for good Chinese food, but Spice China is an exception. The menu is huge and the place has a nice ambiance. Is it the best Chinese I've ever had? No. But is it one of the best in Colorado? Yes.
with all respect (imho)
I eat Chinese regularly in San Francisco (Tai Chi.. House of Nanking.. Brandy Ho's etc.) so I don't feel "wok-impaired," and I say Spice China is ok.
Especially when (by your personal request) they prepare on the spicy side and maybe customize/experiment a little per your recommendation, we may have a winner here.
Work the back of the menu, a little out of the mainstream, and you will be pleasantly surprised.
PS I'm a bâtard chanceux as I live in Louisville, but I would drive from DU 2 eat here.
Great Chinese Find. I know Louisville is not the first place to think of when you want quality chinese food, but this place is a FIND! Give it a try and you'll see what all of the great reviews are for. The ambience is very comfortable, cool, and contemporary. The food and the service is excellent. Our waiter suggested a dish that was not on the menu, (Shanghia Shrimp), which everyone at the table thought was delicious! Crab cheese wontons were also some of the best I've ever had at a Chinese restaurant. Go!
NOT Vegetarian-Friendly. We're vegetarians - and this place has a whole page in their menu titled "Vegetarian". Great, right? Well, not when you accidently find out that their 'Vegetarian' items are all cooked with Chicken Stock (unless you are psychic and know to ask them not to do that). We won't be going back again...
Good North Area Chinese. If you like PF Changs you may love this better. Food is always fresh and "bright" tasting, kind of like Chinese with a Vietnamese zest. Service is always excellant (I've stopped going to places that are indifferent)! The teipong pork. garlic cress and steamed whole fish are some of our favorites(call ahead for the pork). Sure, more authentic dishes are in the Far East Center area, but they are doing a good job here in the north area. Drinks are just ok.
schwing schwing. Awesome food, great service! Awesome Ambience! best deal in Denver! ask for Dan.
Outstanding!!. Not only is the spice perfect, but the staff is ready to make sure your meal is prepared exactly as you order. I always have chicken breast substituted for traditionally dark meat dishes at no extra charge or extra wait time. The food is the best!
Not hardly. Take it from someone who has traveled to China, the cuisine is far from authentic. The spicing is heavily weighted with western spices. The cooking styles remind me more of Korean and Vietnemese than Chinese.
