Overall: First time eating here, CASH ONLY. Was searching for Chinese food while on my stay for training in the area, and found this was the closest to my hotel. Placed my order and the staff on the phone said it'll take about 30 minutes. Arrived and my order wasn't ready yet, and discovered it was only the gentleman who managing all services: cooking, answer phones, and processing transactions. Food was very poor: salty for Singapore Mei Fun, the rice in the House Special Fried Rice was hard, Pork Chop Suey and Chicken Hunan was very salty. Only the white rice and Rangoon taste like it typically should at all chinese restaurants. My verdict, travel to Wausau (about 15-20 minutes away) and grab some better food. Environment: 1/5 - floor tiles was very dirty and looks like it hasn't been mopped or maintained daily. The hot water dispenser on the table looked like there was water spots stained onto it. Was observing the cook and noticed that he used the same sauce that was used to cook the vegetables, then placed them onto the top shelf while he cooked other foods. While on the top shelf, the water dripped down onto a pan and he later used it for future dishes to cook.
Terible food, long wait, looks trashy, the food here is terrible the rice texture is grainy and the sauce for the chicken is thick like barbecue sauce. I ordered crabragoon and chicken which took 30 minutes snd when i got there the chicken and crab was cold. When i went inside the tiles on the floor were dirty the walls were terrible. If you were to go somewhere for chinese, go to Kues. They never left me down, and have an amazing atmosphere and food.
Ate here several times. Food quality went down over a couple years last meal gave me stomach pain. Stopped eating here. Great location near highway in virtually deserted mall. Front end of restaurant shabby.
To Dana Diels- hoping you are a recently new citizen to Merrill. The China Inn is very, very popular here. It is silently understood that they get extremely busy for lunch 11A- 1P and dinner 5P- 7P. I have called many times and have had a few times where they did not answer- due to there are only 1 full-time cook and another cook/cashier, which causes delays as you can imagine. Best advice- plan ahead as well as you can and experiment with finding the best time to call.
I highly recomend the shrimp with lobster sauce! it was so delicious!!!!! That was my favorite! it is on there lunch specials! so seriously try it once its very good!
