After a long day of driving, we opted for fast food tonite. Nearest sit down restaurant was 25 miles down the road and we were not up to it. GIANT mistake. We thought mistakenly there would be some veggies at the Chinese restaurant. And indeed there were; they just were not recognizable. This restaurant was part of a small rural... More

Get your Pepto-Bismol and easy access to the bathroom ahead of time. I can't be sure that is really chicken or beef in that "stir-fry". Let's just call it mystery meat.

Place was filthy. The food looked bad and smelled worse. I would not eat here on a bet. Burger King and McDonalds are both safe bets, the restaurant in the Kayatana Inn is no screaming hell but the food is at least edible.

Located in a small mall in Kenyenta, it serves some very good Chinese food, be it takeout or eat there. Very fresh, with fast service

We are from Singapore, and to be able to find a Chinese Restaurant in the midst of a desert, on the way to Monument valley is truly surprising. Furthermore, the dishes were delicious and service was warm. We opted for the buffet lunch for the 7 of us, free flow of drinks and the price is reasonable. Most importantly, it... More

Good flavors, great selections. Some unusual choices but they looked fabulous. We would eat there again if in the area. Much better than chain restaurant fare. Tons of food for very little money. Small amount of seating, perhaps an old converted subway?

Passable chinese food in the middle of the desert. Try the vegetable noodles. The rice bowls aren't bad and the prices are reasonable.
