OK place reasonable food, marginal service

We stopped here after a long day in Yosemite Park hiking. We were tired and hungry. China Station was just fine nothing special and nothing really bad. The Kung-pao chicken was just what my wife wanted and the Pad Thai was also good. We asked for spicy but both dishes needed the help of a little... read more

We were visiting Yosemite National Park and stayed a hotel near this restaurant. The food was ok. Asked for ice water, but served with cold water. No one was asking if you need more water. At the end, there was 15% service charge for two of us. And still asked for tips. Watch out.

China Station is the best Chinese restaurant between Merced and the Yosemite Lodge Food Cafeteria. Now before you go out and make a reservation please read the full review. We are on our way to Yosemite, and after 4 hours of driving, need a place to grab some grub in Mariposa, an hours drive from Yosemite Valley. On the very... More

there was an excellent range to choose from, both Thai and Chinese food with the emphasis on Chinese. There are good options for vegetarians but labeling could be improved. My son is allergic to wheat, nut, lactose and egg so this is relevant to me.

We liked all of our dishes bar the special sizzling seafood which consisted mainly of sizzling vegetables and very little seafood. But I suppose we should have expected this in a country town a long way from the sea. Service and other foods was very good and well priced.

The Chinese food here is tasty, fresh and filling, I was a little disappointed that they do not have individual combination meals on the menu, but they were very accommodating when I asked if available. I had the cashew chicken, sweet & sour pork with fried rice. All in all a gret place for Chinese food.

We arrived shortly after opening so we didn't need to book, the service was friendly and quick and while the food was nice, and quite a lot of food per dish, to our Australian tastes it was quite bland, even the so called "spicy" food was not spicy. But it was cheap and filling and as far as I could... More

Or I was just lazy to go farther than walking distance from out hotel. The food was pretty good, but it was way overpriced. Maybe it's the transportation costs? But for a Labor Day weekend, it wasn't busy. I enjoyed the Sesame Chicken and the Shrimp Fried Rice.

Most people visit Mariposa on their way to sites like Yosemite Valley. In case you just want a quick lunch or dinner I would recommend China Station. Right on the main road, it is not in the most scenic area of town (to say the least) however they do have nice decor inside. Food was very good and service was... More

The food was quite sub-par and the service person misrepresented the "heat" of one of the dishes ... we asked if it was spicy and he said "no" which was just plain not true.
