We love their food and visit John's at least once a week for lunch. The portions are so large that we get another meal from the leftover, and it reheats well, depending on what you order. Wish they had a restaurant in Salem, too.

The business hours on this page are wrong. John's is not open on Monday and I confirmed this by calling, their answering machine says closed today (Monday). This is a good restaurant and our go-to place for take out.

Awful!just spent $34 bucks on three dinners. All supposedly "large". We got two general tsos 1 box of Mongolian beef and one box of rice to share with all three dinners. Mongolian beef has absolutely zero flavor and mostly veggies hardly any beef. I actually had to put salt on my Chinese food! Both the guys who had the gen tsp said Safeway is actually better. We could have spent half the money and gotten the same amount of food and more flavor :( absolutely don't see what the hype is about. What a waste of money!

If it's the weekend and you are terribly hungover, John's is a great option for to-go food if you are in the Keizer area. The best part about this building is the drive-up window so you can roll out of bed, look like crap and not have to leave your car. (Not that I've ever done that...lol) You can call ahead or order at the window. The service is really quick and the portions are HUGE. I love the fried shrimp and the chicken lo mein. John's wouldn't be my first choice for chinese because we have several good options in Salem/Keizer, but it is good for sure.

I've been eating at John's Chinese restaurant for over five years at the first location. Having dined at a variety of Chinese restaurant I'd have to say John's is one of the very best. It offers a friendly atmosphere and outstanding food. The owners and the staff are committed fo delivering great food and they get it to you fast. If you're in search of delicious Chinese cuisine that won't break your wallet, look no further, John's has got it

I loved the coconut chicken. I've never had anything like it. The rest was tasty as well. The only complaint is I wish they put vegetables in all their fried rices not just the vegetable fried rice.?

Great dishes, above average taste, fresh. Was very pleased with the food. Service was just a little below standard. Decor was nothing to remember.?

Offering awesome chinese food, and a very quiet atmosphere. The staff at John's are always happy to see you. They also offer some very inexpensive weekday lunch specials. ...?

The best chinese food in the state of Oregon. Customer service is terrific, remembers your name and order if you're a regular. Great price, and the best food, I think I'm going now
