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

While checking in to the motel across the street I'd noted two local options, BBQ or Chinese. A gentleman in the lobby recommended the Imperial Gourmet across the street. My partner and I wanted to share something but didn't want the 'Dinner for 2'. We decide on the appetizer for two plate with flaming hibachi. There was an assortment of... More

We've been eating here for years. The new facility is better decorated - love the entrance door - but fronts on busy 395. Food is the same, unfortunately. It is the best Chinese in Bishop but it has no competitors. Overpriced but solid. If I'm going to eat out I prefer Yamatani or Thai Thai.

Not much in Chinese food in Eastern Sierra area. When I want Chinese, my husband and I head to this restaurant. Great lunch specials. Always have enough left over for a next day lunch.
