been to this place many times over the years and everytime it's been ok. they have a great menu and the staff is super friendly, but the food is alway just o.k., unless your want to drive a hour down the hill, this is the only place like this in the area.

After arriving in Mariposa on Thanksgiving Day and found no other restaurant was open (we expected that), we went to dine here. Considering the location the food was good, even my Chinese wife was okay with it. I liked the paper (foil) wrapped chicken, and my son liked the beef with green/red peppers dish. When we got the check it... More

Worst so called "Chinese" food! Beware, it's awful and the health dept. actually shut them down once for cockroachs and unsafe handling of food in the kitchen!

I love this little Chinese restaurant. It is staffed by great people (folks, 1 Chinese can do the work of 10) and the food is great. Prices are more than reasonable. Try their vegetable stir fry for something healthful yet tasty. Their menu of Thai food is good too. I'll keep coming back to China Station.

The staff was not attentive. Served us a very small glass of water..never refilled and not once asked if we needed anything or asked how the food was. One meal was served and 10 minutes later the second meal was served. Food was not that great, and they even added a 15% automatic service charge on the bill for only... More

Title saws it all. Stopped in after a day at Yosemite. Food is good. Service is somewhat slow but place was very busy. Service was pleasant. Nice family option for a relaxed meal after a day in the park. This was a repeat visit and we were glad to see the place is still there. If visiting the area again... More

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 spices from the table.... 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.
