With phone orders coming in at a brisk rate and deliveries going out the door at the same tempo, Christina Wan’s is a busy place. But the best way to enjoy it is on the premises in a pleasant setting accented with white table cloths, booths, and a granite top bar with full liquor service; there is also a patio, a popular place with diners.

The food, standard American-Chinese fare, is good. No frozen, crinkle-cut veggies out of a bag here; vegetables are fresh. For the diet conscious, low carb and grilled items are available. Fried rice items such as Nutty vegetable or Egg and Onion join the pork, beef, chicken and vegetable varieties. Brown rice is also offered. Orders are generous and more than substantial for sharing. A recent dinner for two of Lemongrass chicken and Honey garlic crispy chicken will have us returning for more.

Owner Christina Wan maintains a high profile at her restaurant. She tends bar, seats patrons, takes orders over the phone – all at a frenetic pace - while engaging customers in friendly conversation. Her move from a location on Federal just north of Sunrise Boulevard was a good one. She’s now located near downtown, where a place like hers was sorely needed.
