We all have those nights. It’s been a heck of a day at work, we’ve still got a million things to do at home, the kids have to get to whatever sports activity is happening that night, and we haven’t even THOUGHT about dinner. And pizza just won’t cut it. Thank heavens for Chinese food take-out!
And if you live in Cranford, you have NO shortage of take-out places to choose from! Here’s an assemblage of places that people ranked their favorites, even if it doesn’t represent EVERY Chinese restaurant. Keep in mind that while most of these places have one or two tables for eat-in, their biggest business is primarily take-out. This is NOT a list of the nicest eat-IN restaurants, (such as Avenue East or Thai Cranford). We are talking put on your pajama pants, pick up your food, and eat it in bed right out of the containers kind of meal. Virtually all of them offer take-out or delivery, and a few (note the ones with websites) also offer on-line ordering.
216 Centennial Avenue
In the heart of Centennial Village, their food is consistently good, their service is consistently friendly, and they have been known to throw in some freebies to your order. Both Szechuan and Hunan style.

Located right next to the Cranford train station, it’s the perfect stop on the commute home.

OK, yes, you’re right . . . . . this is JAPANESE food. But it is being given mention here because it is a brand new business, and is offering 20% off in honor of their grand opening! They offer Hibachi grill, noodles, and sushi.
