First of all, this is not a fancy place, but the food makes up for it. Dinner the other night saw us enjoying a hot and sour soup, a won ton soup, our remembered favourite, the spicy eggplant - a dish we talk about throughout the year until we can try it again. Also their "everything fried rice" and a... More

My wife and I enjoyed a hearty sized dinner here for less than $20 for the 2 of us...tip included. I assumed the food would be mediocre due to the price but I was definitely mistaken. The Kung Pao Chicken was very tasty and the Lo Mein noodles are made very well. As a local here in the Coachella Valley,... More

We stopped in to eat while visiting family. The place was very dirty so we decided to sit down and have soup and get entrees to go. The soup and food were delicious. The food was priced very reasonable. We would go again, but just as carryout customers.

I've eaten here for 15 years. Food is great! Needs a good cleaning, especially the floor and bathroom.

This local Chinese restaurant is typical with portions to make a second meal on the takeaways. Very economical, quick and your drink, iced tea, or soft drinks are included!

Super fast service, large portions, great prices are the things that matter most to me when I want Chinese food. Too bad the other local Chinese restaurants didn't get the clue. I'm so glad I stopped in yesterday. From now on this will be my only place for Chinese in this area. Score!!!!
