Reviews for Cathay Express

This restaurant deserves NEGATIVE 5 STARS.SO tell me why i call and ask for pork fried rice with 2 eggs in it and the chinc that anserwered the phone does not understand anything i am saying. She says you want 2 pork fried rice ok thats $19.40. And she kept saying the same thing. I kept telling her no I want one quart of pork fried rice with 2 eggs added. Then someone that does speak english took the phone from her and told me not to call their no more and hung up on me. full review

One of the best kept secrets in independence. Just like many people, I'm picky when it comes to Chinese food. This place is family owned and has been around for quite a while, and there's a reason why... because their food is delicious. (and affordable). This is not another Chinese buffet. It has a dining area, if you wanted to go in and eat, but most people love the fact that it has a drive-thru. If you're in the mood for Chinese food... You won't be disappointed.

My first experience with Cathay Express was after I moved to Independence from South KC. It was horrible. General tso was like a dough ball and tasted like old grease, as did the fried rice. It was bad enough that I didn't go back until today. Wanting Chinese on a Sunday doesn't leave many options and there were enough recent ratings that were good. So I took a chance and was pleasantly surprised. I got pineapple chicken which is not battered and fried in a light sauce with pineapple, full review
