Far East Cafe is a Sacramento classic when it comes to Chinese food. Located on the busy street of Freeport surrounded by plenty of other Chinese food restaurants, Far East Cafe really distinguishes itself as a leader in Chinese cuisine. The restaurant provides fairly good service at acceptable speeds.
Today, I ordered the combination plate and the sweet and sour chicken lunch special. The combination plate is a great deal because you get soup of the day, fried rice, chow mein, and sweet and sour pork for under $5. The lunch special for $5.50 included soup of the day, steamed rice, chow mein, sweet and sour chicken, and a vegetable egg roll. The dishes came out very fresh and hot. The chow mein and fried rice tasted great. The sweet and sour meats were crispy and came with the sweet and sour dipping sauce, which is nice considering other restaurants will have the meat pre-smothered in the sauce which can cause them to get soft.
Overall, the portions received for the price paid is great. The food tastes fairly good. From previous experiences with their dinner dishes, overall food quality and taste will be great. If you are in the area, then Far East Cafe is the go-to Chinese restaurant.
