“one of so many Chinese places in Mexicali”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

the food was tasty, the portions were big, the wait staff was attentive, and the price (tho not inexpensive) was reasonable compared to other high-end Chinese places... we will definitely return.

“Very good chienese-Muy buena comida china tambien review en español”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

ENGLISH
This place is centrally located on Justo Sierra blvd. It was Friday June 21st around 5:30pm and the place was busy but not full, which I like. The restaurant is clean (I approve of cleanliness and it’s very important to me)- but they had no paper towels to dry my hands in the restroom . We ordered in a way that they bring different dishes to the table and you put on your place whatever you like, sort of a mini buffet on your table. We ordered and we got our complimentary appetizer, I don’t know really know what they are called (I think it’s “pasta de camarón” or “fried shrimp paste”) they look like fried pork skins, but they are some sort of fried shrimp batter “chips” if you want to call it like that, but they are good and taste nothing fishy. The waiter also brought us complimentary cream cheese filled wontons!-score! Food came pretty quickly to our table, food was good, as expected, and service was really awesome. The waiter was very attentive and was constantly making his rounds to make sure if we needed more drinks or if we needed anything else. The restaurant has space for private parties also. I recommend this place if you ever visit Mexicali, you know Mexicali it’s famous for its Chinese food.

ESPAÑOL
Este restaurant esta céntrico y localizado en el Blvd Justo Sierra. Fuimos el viernes 21 de Junio alrededor de las 5:30pm y si estaba medio lleno, no había mucha gente, eso me gusta. El restaurante está limpio (Yo apruebo la limpieza y es muy importante para mi)-pero no tenían servilletas de papel para secarse la manos en el baño. Ordenamos de manera que traen diferentes platillos a la mesa y uno mismo se sirve en su plato lo que quiera, algo como un mini buffet en su mesa. Ordenamos y recibimos nuestro aperitivo gratis, la verdad no sé como se llaman (creo que les dicen “pasta de camarón) pero parecen chicharrones fritos de cerdo, pero en realidad es como pasta de camarón batida y frita, la verdad si están bueno(a)s y no saben nada a pescado/camarón. El mesero también fue muy amable de traernos wotons rellenos de queso crema y gratis!! La comida llego muy rápido, estaba muy buena, como es de esperarse y el servicio estuvo de maravilla. El mesero fue muy atento y constantemente visitaba nuestra mesa para asegurase que no faltara nada. El restaurante tiene secciones para hacer fiestas privadas. Recomiendo este lugar si algún día visitan Mexicali, como saben, Mexicali es famoso por su comida china.

“Comfortable place for large parties.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

My favorite place to eat chinese food in Mexicali. Large palace like room, very modern. Everything from the menu is delicious including wine, ice cream, and unique chinese cuisine. Plenty of waiters to assist your party. Located near a wealthy neighborhood. Private room with bar available for events.
