China Stix Kitchen

China Stix Kitchen
1661 E Monte Vista Ave
Vacaville, CA 95688

China Stix Kitchen was the first restaurant in Vacaville, CA, that I went to after doing an online search.  It was a bit tricky to find, in a big shopping center that has a merry-go-round and a mini train!  Shanghai Express was the other restaurant I found online.

Shrimp chow mein, $8.50.  A good sized portion of noodles, but not many shrimp-though the shrimp was fresh.  A good dish with a lot of flavor. 

Prawns with garlic sauce, $11.50, with carrots, celery, broccoli, and onions.  A very good dish with about 10 prawns.  The sauce was flavorful and had a bit of heat.  The veggies were crispy and fresh.

Service is good but a bit slow.  It was lunch and while there were only about six people there, my order took a very long time.  You can see the kitchen from the counter and there was only one chef prepare all the dishes.

I like China Stix Kitchen better than Shanghai Express.  But, prepare to wait for your food!
