Traveling through The Dalles, my husband and I had a hankering for Chinese food for dinner. It's been a very long time since we've had Chinese food since the one in our hometown is beyond lousy - as agreed by all the locals. Anyway, we...More

It's not much to look at, really just a hole in the wall, but for Chinese food you can't go wrong! Pricing, service and food is great. My wife loves their shrimp. We stop every time we travel through The Dalles. Don't judge this book...More

It may not look like much from the outside but the food is always good and the service is fast and efficient. The Wonton soup is the best I have every had and the Kung Pau chicken is excellent.

Stopped in for dinner, and received quick service right away with a pot of hot Chinese tea. I ordered Kung Pao Chicken. My food was well-prepared, well-cooked, nicely spiced, and a very large portion. While I was there, a steady stream of take-out customers (obvious...More
