Outstanding, kickazz food! – If you love hot, spicy chinese food - look no further. This place packs a punch! No need to ask for additional spice, an avid spicy food fan, I ordered straight from the menu and it came spicy enough! Try the shredded crispy beef and the beef roll. They are fantastic. The prices are great and the quantity of food is quite generous. Two people could share an entree.
real tasty authentic Chinese food – Well, I lived in CA for 15 plus years and had some real good Chinese food all over the world. I have to say Tasty China is not bad at all. They have some unique spicy dishes that I have never had anywhere else. I agree the furniture and carpets are old and nasty, but you always can to-go.....My favorite is the water boil beef and spicy eggplants, but these are off-limits for novice guys and gals.
YUCK! – Close your eyes, this place is FILTHY. Everything is covered in a film of dirt, chairs are torn up. Carpet looks like it came out of my old frat house. No wonder, we were the ONLY people in there at 12:00 on Valentines day.
We didn't eat what we ordered. Couldn't force it down. Trust me. I tried. I'm cheap and do not waste food. Nor am I a picky eater, you should see me.
So, I complained and they didn't care. Wouldn't go back if it was free.
The only reason I gave one star is because you can't choose less than 1.
Tasty China is surely the best, the boldest, and the most delicious and succulent Chinese food I have every had, globally — though I have yet to visit China. And celebrity chef, Peter Chang, is back! You have to go.
The success and majesty and frank deliciousness has everything to do with the presence — and return — of the famous and transient Chef Peter Chang, known for his culinary wanderlust. Well, he is back and better than every in a super-modest scruffy strip mall in Marietta, Georgia, nearby to Atlanta.

Tasty China is well worth the visit not only from greater Atlanta but also the region, the south, the north, the United States, or glob ally. It is so hot and spicy it makes me cry but also with happiness too.
Thanks to Liz Marvel for constantly making visits to Atlanta and Tasty China something of an annual habit — she has her birthday feast there every year and so I get to eat there at least annually.
Oh, and if you noticed, I didn’t speak any specifics on food. Well, I don’t know my Chinese food at all and let Liz and her husband Eric order for me.
Best chinese in North Georgia – If you think you know what chinese food is then think again- stay away from the stuff you've heard of before and aim for things like burning beef roll, red chili won tons, --- when you go - say hi to Phong- she'll aim you <sometimes with force> towards the best on the menu-
Best Sichuan in Country – If you've never had real chinese food, this place is amazing. It's Sichuan cuisine for the most part, so it's spicy.
If you want the best Kung Pao in America (according to me), you have got to check this place out. The flavors blow away anything in Atlanta. The beef with scallions is awesome, very spicy however.
The most amazing thing is that their Wonton soup (a Cantonese dish), is the best I have ever tasted. If you like Cantonese, Canton Cooks (Sandy Springs) is really good (especially their Chow Fun). But Tasty China's Wonton soup blows theirs away. I was shocked.
Widely regarded as one of Atlanta's best Chinese spots. – In Short
The true foodies in town will no doubt regale you with tales of its origin, chef timeline and romantic story of this large Marietta restaurant tucked deep inside a rather run down shopping center off of Franklin Road, just off Interstate 75. But when it comes down to the nuts and bolts, it’s not necessarily mind-blowing but just a truly tasty Szechwan-region Chinese restaurant. Implementing spice and heat much more in their cooking than the Cantonese style that Americans have become accustomed to, dishes like fish in hot oil, fried chicken with loads of waxy red peppers and crescent shaped doughy pork dumplings sitting in a pool of thin chili oil are true delights. Enter with an adventurous attitude, as this mega tasty food is presented inside a rather outdated and well-worn restaurant.
Excellent Chinese cooking – I have lived all over the country and have had some of the best ethnic food there is to be had in the states. I must admit this place is in the top 10 for Asian dishes and probably second best in the country for Chinese food. The flavors are layered and harmonized in a way that caresses the palate with both bold and subtle flavors! Watch out for the dishes listed as "spicy" though, as they are inded quite hot. I suggest you order it half as hot as normally prepared on your first visit so you aren't shocked by the heat.
good food – their food is well cook, affordable and local.. you must give this place a try. Great for on the go or dine in meals!
White Guy Who Lived In China Eats Here 3 Times a Week. – When you live in China, you get spoiled with the food. When you come back, you go through withdrawal because you just can't find good Chinese food in the States. Tasty China is so authentic if I close my eyes I feel like I am back in Beijing. I married a Chinese girl, and we eat here at least 3 times a week. I bring all of my clients here for lunch, and everyone of the has come back on their own. My employees go there to eat at least once a week.
I have read some of the other reviews, which frankly sound like competitor restaurants. I have never once seen any insects or other problems. As far as it not being "authentic" food, I have lived in three cities in China, and been to over 20. There are dishes I can get here in Tasty China that up until now I was only able to get in the Mainland. The smell, the taste, even the look is just like what I had in China.
You want good Chinese food, come here. Chances are you'll see a fat white guy who speaks fluent Chinese. That's me. I'll help you order heaven on a plate.
