Got take out again this weekend, first time in many months. The food was excellent! Still the best Chinese in Las Cruces. All my other comments from my last review still apply, other than the venue is cleaner and much more inviting. Getting closer!

Been getting take-out here for years. The food was excellent, but has now slid to "OK". The unfortunate part is this is still probably the best Chinese food in Las Cruces, which says a lot about the city. The facility itself is in a strip-mall, and almost impossible to find if you don't know it is there. The entry hall... More

The staff were loud and playing video games in the corner. The rock station on the speaker system was too loud and did not help with the atmosphere. The food was nothing a frozen dinner couldn't rival. We don't recommend it.

We went here because I had purchased a "Daily Deal" coupon from the Las Cruces Sun News for $10 worth of food for $5. It was hard to find at night because it is in a strip mall and not well lit. It was also not well lit inside and there were not many customers. My husband got the chef's... More

This used to be the best Chinese food in the city, but since a change in management it has become the worst.

We eat at little hole in the walls all of the time. Sometimes they are pretty good, just not this time. The restaraunt was dark, small and had very sticky tables that brought the question of sanitation to our minds. We have sat in crappy little places before and have been surprised by the food so... we ate. The miso... More

I went there twice with friends then never go back again. I came from northern China, so all the dishes were wayyyyyyy too sweet for me, and everything tastes exactly the same--sweet and sour. For me that was not Chinese food, at least not good Chinese food. For those who like American-Chinese food, I highly recommend it. Because many of... More

Yes, it is true, the place is kind of a dive and I probably would not eat in there but it is definitely the best chinese food around and the prices are very inexpensive. The people are nice and they make the food fresh when ordered. They do deliveries but for a small fee. It is a great takeout place... More

So, this place is your classic "hole in the wall" restaurant. From the outside you would never tell that this place is even still in business, and the interior demonstrates the same. The food, let's just say you do not go for the atmosphere. Everything on the menu is, dare I say, nearly to die for.
