“Don't be fooled”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2012

Don't be fooled because it's in a small strip mall. The food is fresh and served hot, and you can't beat the prices. Went for dinner, and for $7.75 I had soup, egg roll, rice, sweet and sour pork, and shrimp chow mein. To my surprise there were 10 large fresh shrimp in the chow mein dish cooked to perfection. Nothing facncy about the place just very clean with great food. I'm not looking for fancy, just a clean place with great food, and this is it. If you love shrimp don't pass this place up. Looking forward to gettting the poo poo platter on next visit. You can get a great lunch for around 6 bucks.

“Our new fave”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2011

We go here because we like the people so much, the food is yummy, and it's near our house. The kids love starting out with the soup, which is served with chow mein noodles to add. They ask to go here. Very unpretentious. Very fast service. Very reasonable. Not extraordinary, just good.

“Cheap Chinese food that tastes Really Good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2010

This restaurant is hidden away in a non-descript strip mall off San Antonio, and I'd driven by hundreds of times until a friend took me there. The inside is clean and bright, and the servers promptly seat and serve you. Lunch usually runs no more than $7 for a combo plate, and that include soup, egg roll, fried rice and entree. At dinner, the combo is slightly more expensive and includes two entree selections.

The quality of the food is universally good, although I've had one or two over the years that I'd rate as 3 1/2 star instead of the usual 4 or 5. This is just good, no-frills Chinese food -- The best we've found in all of Abq!
