Yum!

Great food, friendly staff, lots of choices, large portions. Seated right away. Order came quickly even though it was busy. Glasses always full. Even the fortune cookies were fresh! Clean restrooms too!

Sweet and sour pork delicious. Egg drop soup good. Chow mien was not as expected and fried rice not very tasty. But had a full bar. I had Chardonnay which was passable. Large servings--could not finish. Quick service. Staff seemed pleasant and friendly. Would return for the pork.

I was amazed at how much food and the quality was more than amazing... they were working beans at the front table as I walked in... I knew this was going to be good! The actual meal surpassed my expectations. There was no way I could finish the dish.

Did not like it. The quality of the food was average, at best. The staff were ok but frankly I see no reason to go back.

There are two Chinese restaurants in Trinidad and they are literally around the corner from each other, so if you found one, look a little further and you'll see the other. Judging by the cars in the parking lot, we decided that Wonderful house looked like the better place. As far as Chinese food goes, sure, I've had better, but... More

I got a order to go. The food came out fast and was good tasting, but when I got back to my motel I noticed they didn't give me a fork or spoon (for my soup) to eat with. I went to a store (closer than the restaurant) to buy some. Otherwise I would have gave it a 5 instead... More

We could find NOTHING last night when my husband and I were ready for dinner, except fast food. (I suspect Trinidad has seen far better days.) We happened upon Wonderful House. Hallelujah! A real, sit-down restaurant after 12 hours of car travel! What a friendly place. Our server was delightful. The place was clean...no-frills. The food was good. It was... More

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.
