good meal

The food here was surprisingly good and the staff were great. I usually don't expect much from basic Chinese restaurants while traveling, but this place really exceeded my expectations. I recommend eating here if you are stopping through Trinidad.

Best Chinese restaurant in town. The food is fresh & consistently good. I've eaten here for over 10 years & never been disappointed. They do use MSG but will omit it if you tell them to when you order your food. It's as good as you would get in China Town in San Francisco, Calif. They serve beer & hard... More

On the recommendation of the hotel clerk we ordered food from here for dinner.....What a pleasant surprise!!! Have been craving Chinese for months and this hit the spot....The soup excellent, chicken balls...all chicken and not greasy.....Just the best.....Very reasonable and lots of left overs.....Definitely would order again.

We eat here often. The portions are huge, service is excellent and food is consistently good. They even offered us a free drink on our birthdays. Highly recommend the hot n sour soup and combo plates!

My goodness people, are you kidding me! Y'all think that this is excellent Chinese. Obviously none of the reviewers have traveled very far and have experience authentic Chinese food. This is an Americanized all the way Chinese version of food. It is bland. There isn't anything spectacular about it whatsoever. The only thing I could say is... when it's snowing... More

The best Chinese food in Trinidad. We live in Trinidad and come here several times a month. The owner (Kelly) is always there greeting customers and very friendly. The staff is also friendly. The food is fantastic.

We live here and eat here at Wonderful House fairly often. The service is always wonderful. The food is some of the best Chinese we've ever had. The portions are more than enough to fill our teenage boys and the prices are reasonable. Wonderful House truly is wonderful!

After driving 8 hours pulled into LA Quinta & asked about restaurants - Wonderful House Restaurant was recommended if you were tired & didn't want to go back out, since they delivered. Front desk provided the menu & we ordered egg rolls, shrimp &scallops with vegetables, and the House Chow Mein. We were expecting mediocre Chinese food, but to our... More

The restaurant is located near the Interstate and the Colorado Visitors Center. The staff were friendly and fast with the food. Food portions were large. Food was good.
