A block off of Central Ave in the UNM area and a go-to place for many faculty, staff and students. Lunch prices are reasonable and the food is decent. It is a tough place to eat when it is really hot outside as it not...More

We were in the mood for Chinese food one night, so we ordered takeout from here. It was pretty good overall--the egg rolls were great, and the chicken and broccoli was tasty. The General Tso's was good. The prices were very reasonable as well.

The food is freshly prepared and excellent. We went there on a Saturday night in late July and had the place practically to ourselves, but that changes when the University is in session.

We live next door to this place and it always smells great, but the food was very bland and the service was just so-so.

Very cheap, fast, made following Chinese tradition but from local ingredients (try the jalapeno chicken with rice). Definitely a hole in the wall, but perfect for lunch.

Ya know how you are only supposed to be able to get two out of three when it comes to good, fast and cheap...? Well Kai's Chinese Restaurant in Albuquerque really can give you all three. The place doesn't look like much, but what it...More
