Quant and very fast service

We went for an early dinner and did enjoy it. Very friendly and great service and very fast food service. Food was good but nothing out of this world. Cashew chicken was good!

The first time I ate here, it was in the middle of the afternoon and they had no problem with accommodating us. For some reason I ordered egg foo young (something that is usually very unimpressive). What a surprise! It was like having egg foo young for the first time. Try it Mikie, you'll like it.

We waited almost 30 mins for our table, which was ok, but then it took another 30 mins to get our food. Food was average in quality and taste. The lack of service from restaurant being short-staffed made everything worse. I would've given 1-2 stars but for the waitress trying to do a 3 person job.

Driving down the coast and being in the car for about 5 hours, I was starving. Yelped restaurants around me and this one caught my eye, I'm glad we stopped here. Right when you walk in, the hostess was friendly and made conversation as she walked us to our table. Waiters were just as nice. The food was great and... More

I've had the opportunity to eat many different styles of Chinese food in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Orange County. Dragon Bistro was a huge disappointment for me. Vegetable Chow Mein was greasy and had very little veggies and Mongolian Beef was bland. I even tried the restaurant a second time to give it a chance to redeem themselves. Once... More

Typical menu choices; egg foo young, sitr fry, bbq pork fried rice. Ever since moving from SF Bay Area 2 Palm Springs we live an unfulfilled life cause good Chinese food is non existent here. So...we were thrilled to find this place.

Excellent Chinese food with friendly and attentive service. We especially liked the hot and sour soup and mu shu vegetables. There is a large menu and we have always left happy.

A pretty restaurant with lots of free parking nearby that serves yummy Chinese food at low prices for a tourist town meal that you will enjoy.

If, like us, you have an urge for Chinese then this is your only option in town. We had a few dishes, noodles, kung po chicken, spring rolls and fried rice and it reminded me of what Chinese food used to be like back in the 70's. The portions are huge, I'd much rather they substituted quantity for quality, we... More

We are locals who have eaten here many times and continually enjoy the fresh and well prepared meals we have here. They are traditional Chinese food (Szechuan) and are so consistently good. We can always know that our meals will be just as yummy and the last time we were there!
