Surprising good

I have eaten at this restaurant several times and each time the food has been surprising good. I guess I do not expect to find good Chinese food in Bishop but I have found it very tasty.

The food was what you would expect from a Chinese restaurant. It was clean and the waitress was nice. It was a bit pricey for a family of 4.

This restaurant holds up to the restaurants in much larger cities. We go here often. We like the variety and service ..they've been in Bishop for over 20 years and have new facilities that can accommodate many guests. I believe they have weekend buffets for the economy minded..who isn't? Nice views of the Sierra at dusk.

We got 3 appetizers, 2 entrees & fried rice. We selected the Beef with Broccoli & the Orange Chicken. Fantastic! the flavors... More

The server told them that a "Traveler's service charge" had been added to their bill and they did not need to leave a tip. I thought about... More

The food is very good with large portions. We have eaten there on a number of occasions and it has been great every time. It is a bonus that they deliver as well.
