I gave this place 5 stars not because it is the best food I have ever had, but because it is consistently the best Asian food in Ridgecrest. The lunch buffet is tops. I guess I would say that the buffet is among the best buffet's I have ever had. When I am there I order off the menu. I... More

We were highly recommended this restaurant by our hotel manager so we tried it as we were hungry after a long day of driving and we do enjoy Asian cuisine ! First the good points : the menu offers a wide selection of Chinese and Thai food at reasonable prices and the Thai salad was crisp and delectable . The... More

We needed to feed to young boys pronto and we went with the reviews. We were not disappointed. Drinks arrived within minutes of ordering and food very shortly after. Food comes to the table once ready which may bewilder some but we were used to this in some of the Chinese restaurants in uk and pretty convenient when all are... More

I could write a bunch of stuff but- just go and eat. We often order Chinese food but this was something special. Over several meals, we were never disappointed. Best Chinese meals I've probably ever eaten.

We wanted ice cream and the offerings were very good! There were many people eating their meal inside the restaurant, so one could surmise that the meal was good. Directly across from Big Lots and not too far from Starbucks

Travelling around the desert area we have had BBQ pizza burgers and mexican. Our expectations were not high from the isolation of the place from an Asian community at a military base town. We had the Mongolian beef and the chilli basil with chicken. Both of us are seasoned south East Asian travellers. Asked for the temperature level of chilli... More
