“Best Chinese food in the Vail valley”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014

Have gone there each March during our annual Spring ski trip to Vail. Consistently good. The portions are large enough for two to share.

“Worth going out of your way!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2014

We were encouraged when we walked into this out-of-the-way spot and noone's English was especially good! Run by an ethnic Chinese family, they are still much more conneccted to their Chinese roots than to Americanized Chinese food. The second evidence of authenticity was that they didn't even ask about / give us an option concerning rice. It came as it should, white, perfectly sticky, in a family style bowl for the whole table. EVERY dish we ordered was exceptionally well done as we shared. I especially liked the garlic eggplant. It is NOT near Vail village but if you really like good Chinese food, you simply must make the effort to find this gem

“Best in Vail.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

This is the best there is in Vail. It's just not consistent. Sometimes we've had very fresh and very good. Other times, not. They do not like if you send something back...even if it smells funny!

“Rude waiter!!!!!!!!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2014 via mobile

We had lunch there. We didn't get any services but the waiter charged us a 18% of gratuity. When I asked him about it, he wasn't very happy to answer my question. Don't go there. You'll be miserable and ruin your whole day.

“average!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014

The food is ok - not great - but this is the only chinese restaurant in town that is worth eating at. The garlic chicken was pretty good, but was prepared differently the two times I had it! Both were nice though.
