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.

We went to eat lunch here on a road trip through the area. This restaurant is located in the main shopping area of Kayenta.It is a Chinese restaurant that offers the commonly found selections in a utilitarian dining area,very much like what you would expect at a food court in a mall. What was different here was the fact that... More
