Arrived in Los Alamos mid afternoon and was starving. The local Greek place (Pyramid) was closed midday (what's up with that???), so we went next door for Chinese. Although the buffet ended at 2 p.m., the food was good - just higher per person than the buffet would have been. I'd recommend any of the dishes we had - noodle... More

We LOVE their pot stickers! Chicken Fried Rice is so good, I ate up all yesterday's leftovers and am going back for more tonight! Going to try the Shrimp Fried Rice and get more mu shu pork. We had chicken curry yesterday too. It was very fresh, but I wish the curry sauce had been thicker, it was more like... More

I ordered sweet and sour chicken and vegetable fried rice for takeout. The rice was tolerable, but extremely over-priced. The chicken was mostly soggy breading that tasted like it was a frozen product heated in the oven. Not at all fried and crispy as I expected. The sauce was sweet---period. No tang, no sour, and it was gooey. There were... More

Always busy at lunch. Not so much at dinner. Food isn't great, service is even less so. Quick and reasonably priced

For a small town, Los Alamos has a surprising number of decent Chinese restaurants, and this is probably the best of the bunch. The menu is extensive and samples a number of regional Chinese sub-cuisines, with nothing too out of the ordinary (this isn't San Francisco's Chinatown we're talking about) but enough variety to satisfy. Dinners are served seven nights... More

The food is good, but pricey. Every now and then we'll go there just for a change of pace. Service is just ok. Food is good, but nothing special. We usually go to China Moon just because it's fast and for the money you get more.

The buffet is the best in Los Alamos. They are always very friendly. The food is hot and is constantly being refilled. They place is clean and it's not expensive. I've only been for lunch.

My father and I went here for some take out. What a mistake. Overly greasy and wasn't hot. Will not be coming back here. The general tso chicken was the worst. It tasted cheap but with an expensive price tag. Won't be going back.

The place was empty when I arrived for an early dinner. The staff was prompt. The food came so quickly I have the impression it had already been made and just heated to serve.
