Stumbled into this restaurant while looking for a reasonably priced pizza (something very hard to find in California, since even a standard pizza in California is considered a "gourmet" pizza with a gourmet pizza price), Found a chain that seemed to think that a 12" Pepperoni Pizza was worth about 17 bucks and looked around in the strip mall and...

We happened to be in the Palm Springs and Desert Hot Springs area and looking for lunch. This restaurant is located within a couple of blocks of Wal-Mart where we happened to need to go for some fresh produce and RV supplies. This is a pretty big place with lots of seating. There were 4 or 5 waiters and bus... More

I ate here for the first time today. The restaurant offers FREE ice tea or a soft drink with a dine-in meal. The prices on the dishes are also very reasonable. We ordered the Chow Mein and Tofu Soup. Both tasted good and came in large portions. The service was very friendly. The food seems authentic. The restaurant is comfortable... More

A hole in the wall with good American Chinese food. Lunch and dinner combo plates and specials. The War Wonton soup is excellent.

Have eaten here many times. The food is really good and it's about half of what you'd pay elsewhere. Large portions. This is not the place to go for atmosphere though. Typically good service. It's the basics and no frills but awesome.

This place has fantastic Chinese food for a great price. It's amazing how much you get for that price too! Food coma time. The dining room and bathroom are in dire need of a remodel. Although clean they are old. Roof stains, old paint, dirty molding, wobly toilets, etc. This made me wonder about the state of the kitchen, but... More
