Sweet Restaurant, Good Food and Value

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... read more

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

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.

Excellent Chinese food with large portions. Small place but they are fast also. Give it a try, you won't regret it.

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.
