This is a small place with some artsy decor and good chinese food. We love everything we try. The fried crab rangoons are always a favorite. Their chicken and broccoli any way you want it is great. They have large size portions and reasonable prices. They get the food out to you pretty quick too.
I have to hand it to this place. I've finally found good Chinese food in Grant County! I was a little concerned when I first walked in. The place is tiny as it is, and they had a giant ladder taking up about 1/5th the floor space fixing some lighting. The guy working behind the counter quickly came over with a menu though after letting me know I could sit wherever. Their menu is standard Chinese fair, but it's a large and expansive menu. They don't have any duck, but in their defense, a lot of Chinese places around here don't do duck anymore. I was hungry as hell, and needed a lot of food stat. That's why even though it was lunch time, I ordered the dinner combination General Tso's Chicken, which came with fried rice and an egg roll. The food came out quickly and was piping hot. The egg roll was delicious and you can tell that it was fresh out of the fryer, and was handmade. The filling was tasty, and the exterior was super crunchy. It went well dipped in the General Tso's sauce. The chicken itself was very crispy, not soggy, and stood up well to the sauce, which was packed with whole and crushed chilies. The spice was just perfect, not too hot, but not weak either. The fried rice was standard, but was good too. The price was right as well, the whole meal with water was just over $7! I'll definitely be coming back here, especially for take out.
China Castle has the best crab rangoon I've ever had because its not sweet. I love their chicken and broccoli, and shrimp rice noodles. The mongolian beef and orange chicken are also excellent. I've heard that the owner was actually formally trained. Their steamed dishes are great too. I love the sauce that comes with the steamed chicken and broccoli. While P.F. Chang's is my favorite, China Castle is my favorite Chinese restaurant of convenience in Northern Ky. If you ask them, you can get things more mild or spicy. They're actually very flexible if you just talk to them.

Drove almost 4 hours to get to my parents from class reunion...I stopped by GSC in Crittenden location...to get me some coneys. When I ordered (to go), a lady came to serve me...she had her latex (or similar) gloves on...and even when she handled my moneys. THEN she went and made my order using the very SAME gloves that she wore when she handled my moneys. I wondered if she knew how many people that touched these dollars, coins? Nasty...sorry not coming to this location.

Counterfolk were friendly enough. Food was consistent with McDonalds standards (draw your own conclusions). But, yo Critterden (couldn't make this name up) Kentucky Mickey D's: WIPE your tables! Your flies are ferocious.

Subway Eat Fresh??? This is the most UNfresh Subway I've ever been to. I'd give it 1 star but at least I don't see bugs. The veggies on my sub were definitely not fresh. The cookies tasted very old and gross. The staff was not very welcoming either. The manager had no idea what the subway points card was! And the tables were sticky.
