If you expect to find a good chines Restaurant in Santa Cruz forget it. Even Chifa Mandarin is not close to a Chines Restaurant. It looks like one from outside; and if you get inside (no telephone reservation; line outside the door) inside it looks like a food court, serves you have beg to serve you, and the food. Well...

We eat here every week. They offer a typically wide variety of dishes which we enjoy. The service is always good if you understand that in Latin America you signal the waiter, you don´t wait for them. One of the items that we enjoy is the shrimp fried rice. It is prepared as we are accustomed to eating in the... More

The place is kind of old, but nice. Mostly families go there, since it's a classical place to go and eat some chineese food. The food itself is really good, the service though average. The sweet and sour fried pork nuggets and the spicy-sweet pork ribs are a delicious option to try.

I was really craving some good chinese food but I was average. Food: I am not sure if it was the type of food we ordered but it was ok. Service: Average. It took a while to get the order in and to flag down the servers for additional items and to check out. Atmosphere: Good. Eating area seemed clean... More
