“Very disappointing”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

We went for lunch because we heard such great comments. Much of the food was in sauces. Breaded shrimp was raw inside as well as the spring rolls were raw inside. The service was standard and the restaurant had not been vaccumed (food scraps on the floor). We believe this is over priced and will not be going back to this establishment.

“worth the wait”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

Four of us went for supper here and it was very good. There is always a line up and wait. We only had to wait 15 minutes which is what they said it would be. I would not recommend taking large groups. There was a good variety and everything was good, I don't think anything would be stale since there is such a turn over. There was a seniors rate so price was very reasonable.

“Well, Boys and Girls. Belly up to the troff!!!”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

03/4/14
The wife and I went there this past evening as it was reviewed favorably by TA members.

To say we were disappointed would be an understatement. Over charged for what turned out to be terrible food and worse service. This place must be a Madison Avenue interpretation of a Chinese Restaurant.

Food was mostly lukewarm to cold, all the containers had congealed old food and nothing was replace with fresh the whole time we were there, I you go to get quantity, by all means go, If you want a nice meal with an attentive wait staff, steer clear. The help was mostly young women who were listless and only marking time waiting to go home.

The place looked up scale, but in reality the food and the atmosphere were disgusting. The only thing lacking was a loading chute out the back door to run the customers up to take to the packing house.

And for this you get to pay too. What fun.

“Long lines are diminished, parking still an issue”
Reviewed February 27, 2014

While the long lines seem to have diminished, parking is still an issue. City of Yuma forced the restaurant to develop a huge garden out front that caused them to lost about 20 parking spots. But I digress....the food is good for a smorgasbord situation. They had cheese filled wontons that were excellent. Didn't much care for the hot and sour soup... Seemed to have a taste I didn't like. The fish in cream sauce was good, the Korean BBQ ribs were tough, but they usually are!! Salad bar was nice with several salads to choose from, the desserts were rather no-hum. Nothing that I could write home about, so I just had some more cheese filed wontons. They do have the self serve ice cream, if that's what you're after. Wasn't feeling like it when we went, perhaps was just too peckish!!! However, for the cost, this is superb value and would recommend it highly.

“Small parking area but tasty food!”
Reviewed February 11, 2014

We drove by on our way to Mexico for the day the parking lot was packed. Always a good sign at a restaurant so we stopped in for a bit later, and we are sure glad that we did! The food was always fresh and hot. The staff is on top of everything. It seemed a little pricey, but there were soon many food choices. We will eat here again.
