This restaurant served standard Chinese food in a nice atmosphere. We had Kung Pao Chicken and Honey Walnut Shrimp. Both were well prepared and tasted good. Their food was much better than you usually get in a small-town Chinese restaurant. I ordered jasmine tea and was served black tea. Service was pretty good.

What more can I say? The food is delicious. The portions are just enough so you don't feel overly full. The service is on point. This is one of a handful of places we eat when we come into town.

We had a very pleasant and authentic Chinese dinner here, having been recommended by our B&B hosts. We have lived in China and eaten Chinese food in a range of other countries across the world, and in our view this is as authentic as you're ever going to find in the USA outside the major Chinatowns. A couple of other... More

This place was recommended to me by the locals. The decor is somewhat of your typical Chinese restaurant, but not overdone. They have plenty of room inside for seating. Service was good and polite. The menu is reasonably extensive, especially given the location of the restaurant. I ordered Chinese ribs, their special shrimp dish, in a red sauce. This is... More

The food is good here. War won ton soup is good on a cold day. It is not priced too expensive. They have a full bar inside We usually end up with left overs.

I eat here every time I'm in town. That's once a year for 30 years. Always good, always clean, always nice employees. Even moving across the street had no effect. It's also usually busy. I have never had a bad or even mediocre meal. I wish it wasn't 6 hours away.

I have eaten here quite a few times, and am glad that I gave them a second chance after my first visit. The first time I went here, I had one of the lunch specials. In fact, I found nothing special about it except the price. On every subsequent visit, however, regardless the time of day, I've ordered off the... More

We had take-away from this place. The food was nice with generous portion (in fact, my elderly dad considered the food here among the best throughout our whole journey!). The people here were friendly as well.

Whilst having a one night stop over in bishop, we decided to eat here to have a break from burgers, steak etc. We were a little apprehensive after reading a few not so good reviews but there really was no need, the restaurant was clean, the staff welcoming, the food was delicious and served hot. It was very humid during... More

Was looking for a light meal and decided to try Chinese food in Bishop. I was not disappointed. Had the cucumber salad; crisp cucumber, rice vinegar & oil, with minced garlic which was refreshing ahead of my chicken and vegetables with white rice. Food is light on the seasoning and salt, but the vegetables were fresh and the rice was... More
