I had a business lunch here a few days back and was pleasantly surprised to find this was a pretty good Chinese restaurant. Reasonable prices, tasty food and good service. I will be back!

We had a Bo Bo Platter, sizzling two kinds (shrimp and scallops) and BBQ pork dinner. All very yummy! Will definitely visit this restaurant next time we are in Santa Fe. Very pleasant atmosphere and delightful staff, quick service and delish food, what more could you want?

Although located next to Carl's Jr. in a bland and boring "strip mall" type area, this little cafe has the best damn Chinese food AND staff in the entire city of Santa Fe!! We love this place, the waitstaff are amazing and the owners even come out and greet customers! The ambiance is great and staff really looks out for... More

This is the Chinese place to try. Traditional dishes made deliciously and unique dishes that I've never seen in other Asian cuisine restaurants make this a must visit. For those who like spicy dishes, I highly recommend the spicy wonton dish. It was amazing. Other dishes that we loved included the happy family and the gold coin beef. Even the... More

For a very reasonable price, you get very fine food and very pleasant service. My wife and shared the chicken potstickers, the Mu Shu Pork, and the orange beef - all highly recommended. Each was well prepared, made with very fresh ingredients (not overcooked), served hot, and presented in a timely order. The portions are large. We are salt conscious... More

While living in Santa Fe, I was having cravings for Chinese. Friend took me to Yummy Cafe for dinner. Friendly staff, nice atmosphere, really good food. Went back couple more times.

Thanks to other reviews we tried it and weren't disappointed. The lunch specials were just right! Not only an entree but also soup, salad, egg roll, wanton, and rice.

We've been in town about three months and still hand't found "the" Chinese restaurant for us . . . until tonight. I was pleasantly surprised by the decor for a restaurant located in a somewhat lackluster strip center. We were greeted and seated by the owner. It took a little while for our server to get to us, but it... More

Just tried this place for the first time and I definitely will be back and often. The Bo Bo platter is my new favorite appetizer sampler, my entree and tea were both great, and customer service was positive as well. Thank you!!(:

Located right next to the renamed college of Santa Fe, this is our go to after he movies food place. Chinese food in a city far from a thriving Chinese community can not be expected to be great, but this place is always dependable, clean and with decent service.
