I love chino because it is different and made with real ingredients instead of crap. Try your selection in a quesadilla! Emerald chicken and diablo chicken is the best! I get mine with black beans and jerk fried rice.

We finally ate here yesterday and it was amazing! The ordering can be a little complicated but they are willing to help you. We both had combo plates, I had a gringo chicken quesadilla, a jade red chicken burrito and chicken fried rice, we forgot to mark my beans so I only got to try a bit of the black... More

Mexican Chinese food? Who'd a thunk! Had the carniasada with Jade red chicken, chicken fried rice and refried beans. The free cookies were very good also.

Whenever I go to a new place I always check what Drive-in, diners and dives places are local. This is an interesting, tasty blend not to be missed! As others have said, the menu is a little intimidating, but grab an order form, take a seat, and take your time! We tried 2 combos and the top recommendations are red... More

This place is an order at the counter type restaurant. With your meal, you get an awesome snickerdoodle for dessert. The jade chicken is the best. They have a "taste test" counter where you can try out the different meat and ask questions before you order.

Like to try new places to eat. This is a Diners Drive-ins and Dives(DDD) location. Food is very tasty. Plenty of room to dine. Very reasonably priced for the amount of food. I would place this establishment as more of a diner than a dive. Staff were very friendly and were very helpful about picking out a food choice for... More

This is a must try! Where else can you have awesome spicy beans, jerk rice, Diablo Chicken and a Chili Relleno, all in the same container? HERE! THAT'S WHERE!!! Great food!

Fantastic!!! A must stop if you are in Phoenix. The food combinations are very different from the norm. I would encourage you to take the advice of the servers. They can make a pairing that is unbelievably diverse. The food, the service and the surprise cookie were amazing. It's worth every penny!!!!

Family members went here in March and gave it thumbs up, so we decided to find out for ourselves. The retail area is misleading but do not let it keep you away. Eclectic fusion mix of Asian and Mexican dishes served up as combinations in a container that also serves as your take home box. Ample amount of food is... More

Was just ok. Similar to Panda Express. Good prices, but not worth the drive. I had #10 & 13. Not a lot of flavor. Cookie was delicious!!!!
