Yes, but they're mostly crappy. I do like Cafe 186 and believe it or not, the chinese place in the food court at the Sendero mall, north of town. I'd get my food to go, because neither place has much ambiance

Yes there are head across the street from the Puerto Paraiso Shopping Mall and walk up and away from the Ocean. There are two or three around that area.

I think there is one across the street near McDonalds also. I only have pictures of them but not exactly where they are. Good Luck!

There are plenty of chinese fast food places in Cabo but they all taste really BAD ! I agreed with the other person that posted earlier. The food are salty and greasy. Gives chinese food a BAD rep !

You are better off with Japanese food . There is a teppanyaki restaurant by the marina at the Puerto Paraiso Mall that serves hibachi style cooking . Very entertaining and delicious food . Give it a try. You will love it !

Never have tried any Chinese food in Mexico but then again if I wanted Chinese food I would go to San Franciso or China but who the heck would know me there.

I have been looking for one in all of my walking around. I am surprised there are none here...in Zihuatanejo the downtown area is 7 blocks by 7 blocks and we have 3 of them...and all are just excellent...and rate very high on trip Advisor...and are busy with locals as well as tourists.

Long term in Mexico you get hungry for all kinds of food...same as at home where we do Chinese at least 2 times a month...at our favorite places.

Again, Cafe 186 is the best I found in Cabo. GMsunset and Cabobound67 from the forum turned me on to the place. From the main drag in front of Puerto Paraiso mall, head up Morelos street 2 blocks and take a left on 16 de Septiembre street. It's about 3 blocks down on the left hand side. They also deliver.

It's not the greatest, but it's the best I found in Cabo.
