FOOD: The Seafood Special was amazing. Perfectly cooked seafood in a light sauce with a slight touch of garlic. The Sweet and Sour special was good with outstanding chicken lo mein. Very large portions. We ended up with tons of leftovers. SERVICE: excellent service with a smile. The server was running as they were a bit busy. He remembered my... More

As tourists in town, we were unsure what to order, so we opted for the appetizer that featured everything and some barbecue pork lo mien. Both were delicious and made us wish we could try more things on the menu!

We stopped in this town while we were driving and found this little gem. It looks like the usual Chinese restaurant, but do not be fooled, their food is amazing and as cheap as any Chinese place. We ordered three different plates; noodles with shrimp, cashew chicken and orange chicken, and they all came with a soup(we tried the hot... More

Whenever traveling through Trinidad this is the place to stop and eat. One of the only restaurants open on Sunday. I order Lemon Chicken and got 3 chicken breasts! Too much to each. Staff is super friendly and food quality is as good as in the big city!

We were looking for a sit down restaurant to take a break in our drive from Albuquerque to Denver and wanted something inexpensive but different from the typical food fare found at McDonald's during a road trip. And, we were not disappointed. The food and service were both great. The hot tea was included with our meal which was a... More

Similar to a "greasy-spoon diner," this is what I call a basic American-Chinese restaurant with very familiar food that's OK but tends to run oily and salty. Dated, cheap decor. Bathroom was surprisingly nicer than most of the rest of the place.

This is by far the best Chinese Restaurant in town. The food is consistently good. Service and staff are wonderful. We eat here at least 4- 6 times a month. I have tried many of their dishes and they are all good. Easy access to I-25. Prices are very reasonable.
