We tried this spot which was recommended on the different online sites and we both were disappointed in the food and atmosphere. It was just average, and felt it was certainly over rated.

I was introduced to this place by family. It is off the beating track but so worth it. The food is Mexican, Chinese and Jamaican! What a combination! The food has spice and flavor to it and doesn't disappoint. It does get very busy so make sure your not in a hurry.

Went to Chino Bandido on recommendation of friend. MIxed because some of the meat was dry and needed a little kick, others meats very tasty and zesty. Would go back but not my first choice.

Clean place, fun atmosphere, cashiers are super helpful in giving little samples so you can taste some of the meat choices up front before ordering. Basically you are getting a aluminum foil tin with two choices of delicious seasoned meat, rice and beans for $9 something...or you can have a small tin with one meat and rice for half that....

We stopped in after seeing all the positive reviews. You order at a counter where there was actually a lady who would give you tasters of anything you want and then once you decide will help you fill out your ticket. The food was delicious and filling. I got the Diablo and my wife got the Jerk chicken. We both... More

My husband and I were visiting Phoenix and were excited to try Chino Bandido. We had seen it on Diners Drive-ins and Dives. It did not disappoint. Food was exceptional. Staff was super helpful and friendly. We weren't sure how to order, staff came over, gave great recommendations, and helped us. Food was brought out to us quickly. Lots of... More

We weren't sure we were in the correct place as it doesn't look like much from the road. What it lacks in location, it makes up for in unique and delicious food. This fusion of asian and mexican is worth checking out. I love the added touch of a cookie with each meal. The snickerdoodle was fantastic. Some of the... More

Stayed in Phoenix for 3 months and ended up going here 3 times. It was unique blend of Mexican and Chinese that you wouldn't typically think of. Easy going staff that allowed you to taste menu items and assist with ordering. Definitely left full after every visit.

What an interesting mix of Mexican and Chinese food. We brought a family of seven here and everyone enjoyed it even the picky 11 yr old boy. The jerk chicken and the Jade red chicken were both super good. If you put them in a quesadilla or burrito it's the same price and it makes the meal a bit bigger.... More
