China Town redesigned their location near the Nike Campus in Beaverton, Oregon. Well-known for serving authentic Chinese cuisines, China Town offers a wide selection of traditional Chinese dishes. They have become particularly famous for their dim sum, which has been cited as the best dim sum north of San Francisco. They are also known for their other authentic Chinese dishes such as chow mein, roasted duck, roasted pork and their Szechuan dishes.
The restaurant boasts a huge dining room with seating for many people. The interior design reflects conventional Chinese motifs with a large mural of the Great Wall of China and classic Chinese paintings of traditional figures such as ancient warriors and other scenes from China’s imperial period. Guests are greeted by a large golden crane which is a symbol of longevity and wisdom in oriental culture. The flooring is covered in earth colored tiling reminiscent of rural Han Dynasty landscape and adds to the pastoral theme. The walls have wood paneling made to look like bamboo shoots found in many villages in the Chinese countryside. The mural and some of the paintings also feature traditional Chinese characters. The restaurant also has a bar serving wine and beer.
The combination of the solid wood table tops and chairs in matching dark mahogany finish help create the look and feel of an authentic, traditional Chinese restaurant. The ability to have the extra seating capacity is important since China Town is a family friendly restaurant and these tables are great for large gatherings as it adds to the versatility of the place allowing for “on the fly” accommodation of the seating layout.
