“Mushroom taco”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

The recommendation was to get 2 or 3 items each but I chose 1 mushroom taco and we shared skinny spring rolls which was just right. I figured I could always order more but when in Vegas it's important to pace yourself with meals. There's a great place to eat every meal!

“Quick Bite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

Get the dan dan mian, the carnitas tacos, foie special in the steamed buns (if they have it) and the golden pigs. Food and service is fast/fresh. It's a fun environment and I think it's worth your time for a quick bite between the gambling, the show-watching.. etc.. etc. Love it. Their air margarita is pretty interesting. It's Vegas so of course it is expensive.

“Muy Confuso”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

This restaurant claims to be Mexican, and Chinese.
Although the food was indeed good, and tasty, and we did enjoy it, neither my traveling partner, ( HK Chinese) nor I ( Nicaraguan/US descent) recognized anything on the menu,
However, this place is good for a quick, inexpensive stop for tasty food where other more expensive choices prevail.

“Food was good, but service was terrible”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

went with a group, the idea for the restaurant is good and the food was just ok. The service was terrible, to be fair, i don't believe that it is a problem with all the servers, just the one we had that day, she did not wanted to be working that day.
very expensive, there are many other options to dine in vegas, this is not a place to come back.

“Suprizingly Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

I discovered this restaurant while walking around the Cosmopolitan hotel and decided it would make for an interesting meal. The mixture of Chinese and Mexican food sounded pretty unique and I would have never thought the combination. The restaurant is similar to tapas style where you order several dishes that are smaller portions. We ordered the Chinese bbq Dim Sum which was wonderful! The dumplings were much larger than I was expecting and 2 each was plenty. I then ordered the 21 vegetables friend rice, which has apparently been featured on the food network or something, and it was amazing! I honestly could have eaten just that by itself because the portion was, again, larger than I expected for a small bite. My fiance ordered the blackened shrimp which were also extremely flavorful and did not disappoint.

Of every place we ate in Vegas this was hands down our most favorite. Even better than the buffets!
