I have eaten here many times and always surprised how good it is. My friend had shrimp with vegetables and I had a chicken dish. Hot and tasty. Egg drop soup could have been heartier but it was tasty. Good service. Egg roll pretty good but not old style. I have eaten at the lunch buffet numerous times and it... More

Had lunch there today - the prices have increased several dollars over the past months - but no change in food offerings. Arrived at close to 1 pm - well after lunch rush- several of the foods were empty, the "hot" and sour soup was cold - Our plates stacked up on our table - no drink refills until we... More

What a nice surprise, to find very good Chinese food in a historical small town in the middle of Nevada! Food selection was pretty average for this type of a restaurant, and prices seemed very decent. The food was very good, and offered up for take out very quickly. We plan to try the lunch buffet next time, as it... More

It's typical Chinese buffet at lunch but really good with nice diversity of dishes. Lo mein, fried and steamed rice, green beans, mushrooms, chicken, pork and beef dishes. Great egg rolls, boiled shrimp, dumplings. Highly recommend for a quick, good lunch.

We were staying at the neighboring Bristlecone Motel and walked to this restaurant. There was a wide variety of chinese type meals available. Everything we ordered was good.

We had MuShu Beef and Sweet and Sour Chicken. The flavor was good and meat quality better than some places. The MuShu came wrapped in what seemed to be a flour tortilla instead of the thin pancakes on the side like we have at other restaurants. Service was fast.

We chose this place because it was about a block from the Bristlecone Motel. We walked over and ordered carry out because we had our dog with us and we were going to eat in our room. The food was simple and good. Large portions were packaged for carry out service.

After we checked into our hotel we asked the front desk for a recommendation for a quick dinner. This was the one she said was probably the best. Oh boy, were we ever disappointed. My husband ordered wonton soup which contained some grey noodles and some mystery meats floating in an oily broth. He couldn't eat it. My Szechuan tofu... More

Finally found a Chinese restaurant that makes good egg foo yung, light and airy. Usually they make it with the consistence of meat loaf. Very convenient to the Bristlecone Inn, Ramada and other motels, walking distance. One dinner was enough for both of us but we only got one fortune cookie :^(

I found it interesting to see a lunch buffet in this isolated town. The building is fresh, with beautiful tables (photo), new carpet, and spotless toilet. The green beans were very tasty. Much of the rest has similar flavor. The hot-and-sour soup has a weak stock base. Egg drop soup no better. Fried rice looks nice but might as well... More
