“Great Service, Below Average Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

Ate lunch here today. The service was great but the food, sadly, was below average. We had the lunch specials which were about $6-8 dollars each. You get your choice of soup (we had hot and sour which had way too much black pepper), an egg roll, steamed or fried rice and whatever you choose. We had the spicy tofu (OK, nothing special) and the sesame chicken (which were small pieces of chicken with tons of batter). The tea was good. The total price for two: $14.75 plus tip. Not a whole lot in Oakhurst to pick from as it is a small town right on 41 outside Yosemite National Park. It is located in a strip center where there is a Vons grocery store, a Payless Shoe Store, etc.

“Skip Chinese in Oakhurst”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012

We ate there last night. The price is reasonable but the food is mediocre at best. First it was just warm, not hot. The Kung Pou Chicken was filled with so much celery I left half of it on the plate & I like celery. We also had the house fried rice which didn't have much flavor & had a lot of cabbage, which I've never had in fried rice before. It would have been ok but they used some of the hard outer pieces, which were inedible. The service left a lot to be desired. After the waitress delivered our food, we never saw her again. We had to call into the kitchen to get our check. Best idea, skip Chinese Food while in Oakhurst

“The only place to Eat Chinese Food in town”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

They try hard. They are friendly, the food is not the best, too much grease in some dishes, not consistant, depends on who is cooking, Veggies sometimes are too old.

“made a change from 'american' food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2011

Our meal was good if a bit basic on the serving side. We chose off the set menus and it came ready plated up, but it was hot and freshly cooked. Some of the staff are very young and it took a while to get our beer order, as they were under 21, but the manager was very apologetic. They don't clear the tables very quickly so it looks a bit untidy, but value for money it was pretty good
