It is authentic with vote from the large number of oriental visitors. Hard to find Korean dishes offered along with traditional Chinese foods from various areas. It is a simple, no frills restaurant that could probably use a remodel. From the outside you wonder if it is worth the risk, but the food has never disappointed. For most of the... More

The locals told me this is the best that Albuquerque has to offer. We ordered the wonton soup and chow fun, fried flat wide rice noodles that came with meat seafood and bean sprouts. Yes, acceptable but not a "dining destination"

I had salt and pepper shrimp and it was excellent. My husband had sesame chicken and it had a taste of mustard which was interesting. Our friends ordered onion and garlic fish and therein lies a tale. The server could not tell them what kind of fish was being served. They repeatedly asked and she kept repeating the name of...

I ate here for years and, then, about five years ago, ABC began to deteriorate. It simply went from interesting, to dirty, to filthy. I got tired of flies on my food, dirty tables and chairs, and filthy floors. I walked in one day, took a look around, and left. I haven't returned since. It's a shame. It used to... More

Not a stranger to Chinese cooking, having sampled it from coast-to-coast over 45 years of dining out. I've probably dined in at least 70 different Chinese restaurants in dozens of cities and towns, including San Francisco and LA to Florida and New York, Texas to North Dakota. Love the cuisine. An all too common experience has been the buffet with... More

I read all the good reviews, on a number of different web sites, and I decided to try it last night. The food was tasteless and greasy.

This is absolutely the best Chinese food I have eaten in New Mexico. Authentic and very reasonably priced.

If you order off the BLUE menu it is very authentic chinese food. Better than San Francisco. The owner Lam really knows how to season his food. The lunch menu specials are also good. Of course the portions are good, I have never had a bad meal there. I go there as often as I can. When you order from... More

With its lantern light fixtures and other familiar Chinese touches, this restaurant seems to have stepped out of the 1960s -- or even earlier. The menu might have come from that era, as well -- except for some of the spicy dishes, indicated by asterisks (which diners would do well to take seriously). The lunch specials are a real deal...

I ate here against my better judgement, but Mom-in-law wanted to come and we were all afraid to say "no". LOL! I knew it was not gonna be a good experience, after stepping foot in the door. I wanted to make a break for it while waiting on the food! The place just wasn't clean. I don't know how on... More
