“Good food at a decent price”
Reviewed 16 January 2010

I found the food to be fresh, and with a bit more variety then most Chinese Buffets. I like a variety of Chicken dishes such as Orange Chicken, Almond Chicken etc and found several of these to have especially good sauces.

My only complaint was service. There was a big sign by the door saying to wait to be seated. About 5-minutes later the waiter walked by and said "oh sit anywhere". When people were ready to pay the bill the waiter said "oh, take it to the cashier". Dirty plates were not cleared in between courses. Each time someone new walked into the restaurant they would wait for quite awhile, and the waiter would eventually walk by and tell them to seat themselves. In fairness he was handling the entire place by himself, while the cashier stood behind a quiet register and looked at her nails. I kept wondering why they did not just take the sign down. I found out about 40 minutes later when the owner walked in. All of a sudden the waiter started seating everyone who came in, and the girl behind the counter started helping out. Service could either be wonderful or horrible depending on whether management was present.I guess when the cats away the mice play!

“The Best Place to Eat in Los Alamos!”
Reviewed 12 December 2008

This is my favorite place to eat in Los Alamos. I eat here as many times as I get the chance when I'm in LA.

The service here is simply outstanding. They seat you right away when you come in, give you your drink VERY quickly, and refill your drink as much as you like!

The food is wonderful. You get all the usual chinese food items in COPIOUS amounts, and they are FRESH and DELICIOUS! The chicken fried rice, curry chicken, beef, sweet & sour pork, shrimp, crab rolls, egg rolls, mushrooms and green beans are all excellent. But the very best item for me is the seseme chicken, WONDERFUL! There are also great dessert items as well. If you are not allergic, try the coconut cookies, they are the best.

Very spacious and bright, with booths available by the windows. Great decore with traditional music. Very clean.

Price: VERY reasonable for the amount of food you get.

Bottom line:
I think this place gives you more bang for your buck than any other restaurant in town.
