In trying something else in the west we came into this place. The waiter don't understand English, and even after showing the item on the menu got the order wrong. The food was really not tasty and was all flavored with one hot-sweet sauce. Quite pricy for such food. Recommended to skip, unless the other Chinese restaurant in even worse?

The food in this restaurant was above average, though as noted in other reviews, timing is everything here. There are busloads of Asian visitors who are brought here for lunch or dinner. Try to time your visit before their lunch arrival or before dinner. My wife and I each had one of the 10+ lunch specials (we had sweet and... More

My husband got combo meal "D" - fried shrimp, pork fried rice and Szechuan beef (large pieces of steak). I got combo "C" - fried shrimp, pork fried rice and moo goo gai peen. Both served with fresh spring roll and hot & sour soup. Our service was excellent and timely. The manager was present and thanked us for dining... More

We were somewhat cautious based on other reviews, but we had a great dinner (as good as Chinatown in NYC). Service was great and price was reasonable. No dumplings, unfortunately.

The place was packed as other reviews have stated, We ordered to go and the staff was so nice to us as we waited. The food was really good for the price.

We went early to beat the tour bus crowds (a must during peak season). Yes, they already add the 15% tip to your bill and we knew that ahead of time. I ordered the combo fried which was a bland, but good. The crab rangoon we ordered were piping hot and fresh when they came out. My husband ordered a... More

Average place. Not very many options. Food-quantity was less. Price was more. Wished there more vegetarian options on the menu.

Crowded, but only took us about 10 minutes of waiting time without reservations to get a table for dinner. However, I can imagine that it can take longer as they do a lot of foot traffic. It's noisy but not so noisy that you can't hear others on your table. The service was excellent. We ordered some vegetarian items off-menu... More

We generally eat here every time we visit Yellowstone. This place handles tour groups from Asia so it can get crowded in a hurry.
