“Poor Service, Very Average Food”
Review of China Cafe

Reviewed August 15, 2018

We went here as it was close to our motel. We were greeted and sat at a table inside, the server who attempted to take our order had little English language, so this was difficult. Another lady took over from her.

The food came all at once and was just average, nothing special at all, very basic Chinese meals. I considered the prices high for what we received.
Tables didn't seem to be very clean either.

Certainly would not return to eat here.

We stopped here at 1245 pm and went to get the lunch buffet. As they clearly advertise on the outside of the building lunch buffet from 11 to 130, so we were at the tail end. We went up and all the basic items were there with a little bit left of each. There was another four person family there and it felt like we were fighting for every last scrap as soon as it became evident they were not replacing any of it.

Food was good at least what I could get. The kung pao chicken (actually teriyaki) was pretty good and I wish I could have had more. The price was decent at 7.95 a person so it really is hard to complain. Word of advice if you plan on the lunch buffet don’t bother going after 1230.

There is inside and outside seating. Choose outside along the Animas river. Very quiet and peaceful We had the Hunan Delight and loved it.

The Food was average. The Service was good. It is a Small dining area on the inside. The price of Meals are a little higher than usual.

The food tasted Ok but you only get a single item with a small side of rice in a bowl. it is not a regular plate.

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.
