China House – Woodbury, NJ
Good Chinese food is a difficult find for me in South Jersey. Being in and around Philadelphia’s Chinatown district so often, I am thoroughly spoiled. I decided to take another chance and visited China House (CH) in Woodbury, New Jersey. When I walked in, CH looks like three different locations in one. The one lane leads to a heavy take-out business, the second isle is just tables and chairs for a sit-down Chinese experience, and the third row in CH is a sushi bar and Japanese area of the restaurant. It was a little mish-mash of an experience all in one. I would go with the sit-down Chinese version of CH.
I had the wonton soup, egg roll, shrimp with broccoli, and fried rice. They would all be categorized strictly average and slightly overpriced for what I was served. Maybe CH is better at Japanese menu, but with no one in my party ordering from that menu I can only answer for what I had. The service was friendly and attentive, but with the odd décor, high prices and setup to go along with my meal, it may be a long time before I try CH again.
