I was hungering for Chinese last Sunday and went here with a group of friends. The place is very out of date and looks sketchy even for Mexican standards. The men's washroom stunk of piss and was not clean. The table we sat at was always wobbling around. The food prep was quick, but the portion size was laughably small.... More

Up the hill from the caraterra you find this hidden gem of a Chinese restaurant. Because our favorites at a Chinese restaurant include all of the traditional appetizers, we shared an assortment and enjoyed them all. On the appetizer assortment were fried wontons, BBQ ribs, egg rolls, chicken wings and deep fried shrimp. All were very good. My husband's all-time... More

We ordered their soups as we got a bit sick in Mexico but soups were yummy and just what we needed. We went back for lunch special and there was lots of food all for 85 pesos which is a real bargain including a drink.

A main stay for many visits for over 20 years. Good food in large portions. Great for last minute supper with quick take outs. Been there more times than we can count

I'm allergic to MSG and I was happy to learn that they doesn't use it. Other than that, it's nice to have a Chinese restaurant in the area, but the food itself is fairly average. There are 2 good-sized dining rooms and a small patio for outside dining all with extremely uncomfortable chairs.

It was our first time at Min Wah and it will certainly not be our last. Ample parking, which is not the norm here, and a pretty view of the mountains from out table. Blanca was a pleasure to meet and the food and service was great. We had Combination "A" and started with egg flower soup...the heartiest we have... More

I approached this restaurant with some trepidation as my experience has not been positive when it comes to Chinese Restaurants outside the U.S. Well, this one is adequate. Just ok. You won't think you are in Chinatown (any city U.S.A.) but it is ok. The service is also ok. I will go back as it is the best option lakeside.

Always seem to make one visit here - good breakfast & friendly service make it worth the approach up the hill!
