Somehow disquieting

Our food was excellent if a bit expensive. And the wait to get in is understandable too. Service was adequate though cheerful and well received and rewarded. So what is my disappointment?

We had a nice dinner in this place. When we walked in we saw a party of about 20 Asian people having dinner and we took that as a good sign. We had the curry vegetables and they were very good. It was only when we got home that I started reading reviews of this restaurant and saw that they... More

If you are into chineese food you should be satisfied. We have waited around 15 minutes to be served. Food is good and the prices are ok (around $14 for a main).

We got the Mongolian beef and I'm pretty positive it wasn't beef, it had a gamey taste to it. Bland chow mein and even worse egg rolls and wontons = never again!

We were surprised to see this Chinese restaurant in this small town. The decoration was nice. We thought the food would be good too. What a disappointment! $19 shrimp dish may contain no more 5 shrimp. Extreme over priced. Besides you will be billed automatically 18% tip.

I was hopeful that this would be a good find. It was packed and full of Asian tourists. Prices were comparable to those found in big cities and portions were large. The food itself was below average. I really had higher expectations.

I ordered the chicken with pea pods which was to die for. Husband ordered beef with mushrooms.He was very pleased with it lots of mushrooms, veggies and... More

If you are looking for good Chinese food you don't want to miss this restaurant. The Cashew Chicken is wonderful as is the fried rice. The service is friendly and efficient.

We craved Chinese food and this seemed to be the only option in West Yellowstone. It was a busy night, but we only waited 10 minutes. The English menu consisted of typical Chinese-American dishes already priced >$12. The Chinese menu listed the comfort dishes and more exotic dishes such as elk priced at $48. The "comfort" dishes such as egg... More
