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

I love Chinese food and not many choices of that type of restaurant in the area, so we went here, and we were not disappointed. Very freshly cooked, tasted great. We got the sweet and sour chicken with rice and soup and ordered a side of chow mien. We even had left overs. We will be going back to eat... More

I've eaten here three times and loved it each time. It's clean, well staffed and very nice inside. Lots of locals eat here. Great lunches. Excellent for dinner. I will definitely eat here again.

After 4 day horse drive, the celebration dinner was held here. There were about 35 of us here for this dinner and the service was excellent. They have a full bar so the drinks were flowing and again the service was excellent. The food may be the best Chinese I have ever had. It was family style for our big... More

Young waitress a little slow and forgetful. I've been here before and had better service. The food all came out at different times and she forgot my lemon chicken. I think it sat for a while- the chicken was very tough and the panko coating was too crunchy. Last time I had the asparagus which was so good- they didn't... More
