This is our "I don't feel like cooking" local back up plan. Very reliably good Chinese food, spicy means spicy - which I love! GREAT dumplings/potstickers. Kung Pao Beef is a favorite here, as wells as the Spicy Deep Fried Shrimp.

This Chinese restaurant has been in Monument for over 20 years! When the town was very small it was really one of two places to eat! It never fails to still make you feel like a regular whether you eat in or take out! The food is delicious and the portions plentiful! The staff greets all as welcome and from... More

Ordered takeout for two. Food was ready after a small wait inside the restaurant. They gave us a nice box to carry everything out in, plus plenty of utensils for our hotel room. Service was friendly enough but nothing special. Egg rolls tasted like they were frozen. Chicken was covered in sauce. Not a ton of flavor, however it hit... More

We have friends in Colorado Springs who routinely drive up to Monument as they tell us this is, in their opinion, the best Chinese restaurant in the area. We have no reason to argue. We've always found the food to be delicious, the portions huge, the service very quick and attentive, and the meals value priced. We recommend it.

This is a very typical family run Chinese restaurant. These people are frugal to a fault, perhaps cheap. They could easily spend 500 to change the appearance of the place.....paint, pictures, air fresheners, blinds......little things....they could smile, and give away crunchy noodles instead of charging....and they would make more money in the long run by giving a little. A little... More

I eat here weekly - I think it has the best Chinese in the area and the best prices. Decor is not much but I don't go there for that. Jampong is the local speciality - everyone gets it and its great.

The portions are reasonable and the prices are competitive. The food is average for Chinese. The service is quick, but they seem to be trying to move you in and out quickly. The atmosphere is a bit dated, but reasonably comfortable booths and tables. There are many locals who are regulars at Colombine who have not seemed to notice the... More

Good luck., swing by.,... More

I have been dining at this restaurant for about 15 years now, and I've noticed w/the economy, they have been cutting corners w/their food. Columbine Gardens used to be my favorite Chinese restaurant in the area, but I believe the quality of their food has declined somewhat over the years. The hot sour soup used to be the BEST around,...

It's not easy to find good Chinese Food in Colorado. I had lunch there today and had a beef dish. It wasn't very good. The hot and sour soup was fine. The egg roll was over-cooked and dark brown. I also felt rushed. They kept trying to take my plate while I was still eating. There were only 3 other... More
