With a location with such a nice view of the river, we were expecting a better than average dining experience. Unfortunately not.The soup arrived luke warm as did our main meals and the egg rolls were barely room temp. The broccoli in one dish was actually cold. After 3 bites, my husband asked our waitress if they had a microwave to reheat his dish as it wasn't too appetizing cool. She appeared a bit confused but said 'ok' and took the dish away, we presumed back to the kitchen. After almost 10 min went by, she still hadn't brought his dish back out. He went to the cash register counter and asked that person to ask our waitress the status of reheating his dish. A few min later our waitress finally came back with the dish. It was better than luke warm but not exactly steaming. I will say however that the flavoring of our dishes was very good. If visiting Durango again, I would probably look for another location for a chinese fix.

Came here for a good Chinese meal to go and was not pleased. First off, the rice was undercooked. How do you call yourself a Chinese restaurant if you cannot properly cook rice? Next, the general tso’s chicken dish (a staple in westernized Chinese establishments) was very disappointing. Maybe because it wasn’t on the menu but every Chinese restaurant I’ve been to has this dish. Also a bit overpriced for what they give you. Will not go here again until I try the rest of the Chinese restaurants in town.

Food was awful, restaurant was dirty - can't even imagine what the kitchen looked like. Only positive is the view outback, but save your money and stomach by not going here.

Good news is they deliver to your Durango hotel. Bad news is the food was flavorless. Typical Sysco Chinese with no imagination, no flair, bland.

Best kept secret right next to the river! Food and service are good and prices are reasonable... located next to Burger King and had outside seating... lunch buffet
