You can't improve on perfection! The food is excellent with large portions at a very reasonable price with a very good menu selection. The service is great, fast and the food is always at the right temperature. They are very good for take out as well.

This place is popular with the locals and seemed to have some fellow out-of-towners like us, which I suspect is due to Trip Advisor. None of us were disappointed. Tasty stuff. We will be back on another Colorado trip from Texas. By the way, I asked for an addition to one of the traditional items on the menu and that... More

We stop here every time we travel through Trinidad. I love Chinese food, and this is some of the best for the price. Service is fast and friendly. Try the Woe Wonton Soup or the Lemon Chicken. You won't be disappointed.

We have been traveling through Trinidad going north and south for years. Have stopped at many restaurants for lunch and always drove away thinking there must be something better. There is. The place is packed by locals since they know where to get good food, good service, at a totally reasonable price. This is our "go to" place in Trinidad... More

This is our usual stop when we come thru Trinidad each year. The food is always hot, fresh, & large portions. The restaurant is clean and the service is usually always prompt. A great Chinese restaurant for such a small town. Definitely recommend.

Thought the food was excellent. We get tired of buffets, so a sit down restaurant was nice and have the food cooked fresh. I got the beef chow mien and my wife got kung pau chicken. The egg drop soup was different that I've always gotten, but was very good. Egg rolls same as most Chinese places these days and... More

This is an okay Chinese restaurant considering where are. The people are not very friendly and it's not very organized. The food is okay. The lemon chicken was horrible the sesame chicken was worth a taste.

Had heard good things from locals but just never stopped. Husband had pepper steak and I had double mushroom chicken. Excellent food...and lots of it! Only negative was waitress that seemed to be in a very bad mood - but we don't hold that against the restaurant as everybody has bad days!

Stuck for an overnight in Trinidad CO. Not exactly a vacation destination. Not many places open on a Wednesday evening that could accommodate 17 people on short notice. The staff was wonderful. They handled a large crowd very professionally and efficiently. Everyone received the correct order with very little confusion. The food was good. Everything was served hot, large portions,... More

The food is consistently good. The service is fast & friendly. Compares with quality of food you'd get in San Francisco's China town. These people know what they're doing. I've never been disappointed here. They DO use MSG, so if you don't want it in your food be sure to tell them when you order & they'll leave it out.
