For quick Chinese food fix...

I was hungry and looking for someplace easy for carryout. I noticed CaiE's Oriental Cafe in the same shopping complex as Smith's Groceries and suddenly decided that Chinese food sounded good. Upon entering, although the space set aside for dining in was clean and inviting, the "cafe" also clearly... read more

I was excited to try a local eatery and looked forward to having a good experience. We got 2 dishes to go. I was hopeful that the bustling to go business was a precursor to a good diner. Well, not to be. The Toa's chicken was ridiculously over cooked and salty. Uneatable.

We stopped here because it was close to our hotel and we were too tired to go farther. It's located in an unremarkable supermarket strip mall. Didn't have too high a hopes, but was proved wrong. It doesn't seem like the menu has been as americanized as most chinese restaurants. Food was excellent and more authentic. Surprisingly, the crab rangoon... More

Nothing excitingly different than any other restaurant. Tastes fried. Had the lunch special tangerine beef. The pot stickers were good.

We regularly order from this restaurant for Chinese take-out, often calling in an order and grabbing it on the way home from work. The food is very good quality and if you decide to dine in, I recommend trying the Dim Sum since there are not many places in Reno that offer the same variety. The wait staff service during... More

I've eaten here many times in the past and have had good experiences, with the food and service. I now realize that what has made the experience good has been the presence of a young man I believe to be the owner's son. He's friendly, attentive and present at your table frequently. The food here is consistent, not great, but... More

This restaurant has more authentic Chinese food than the fast food type. Reno has few authentic Chinese restaurants and there others that are just as good. It is not like the Chinese restaurants in Los Angeles, San Gabriel Valley or Irvine, CA which have great Chinese food and great dim sum.

I have always liked the food here and the service from the waitress is always quick. That being said my recent visit will be my last. As I was eating, I kept hearing an odd noise. After a couple times I realized that it was the cook in the kitchen sucking snot down his throat then clearing the phlegm. I... More
