Let’s face it, finding good Chinese food is a real pain. There is nothing quite as uncomfortable as bad Chinese food 🙂 Luckily, I’m more than happy to be the guinea pig!
I’ve eaten at most of the Chinese restaurants in Utah County, and quite a few others outside of Utah. Of all of the Chinese restaurants I have tried, China Isle, located at 323 South 500 East in American Fork, UT is the best I have come across. I have tried 8 or 9 different dishes at China Isle, and every one has been fantastic. The food is super fresh and hot, has no MSG, and is absolutely delicious!
The best time to come is definitely lunch, Monday-Saturday, 11am to 4pm. The have a fantastic lunch special menu that includes soup, an egg roll, an entree and fried rice. Most of the specials come to less than $6 including tax, and I’ve never left not full.
The portions are very generous, the flavors are wonderful, the food is definitely fresh. I have no complaints whatsoever. I eat here at least 2 or 3 times per week. My favorite dishes are the cashew chicken and the sesame chicken, with the Mongolian beef a close contender. The hot and sour soup is the best I have ever had at any Chinese restaurant, anywhere, ever.
