Seems to be the only Chinese restaurant in town, which I remember going to on other roadtrips in '98 and '09. The menu is average, meaning a good selection, but not too extensive, and the restaurant seems to attract a pretty good crowd even on a late weeknight in October.

Ordered chow mein and boneless ribs The ribs were all fat you couldn't even bite into. Chow mein was hard noodles and also ordered house fried rice and it was also hard. The food was really nasty. Called to let them know and she said my manager will say we can't do nothing about it. I said don't want her... More

They charged for siracha sauce. Food was hot and fresh but didn't care for how they made dish. They did deliver which was nice after being on road all day.

Went to this restaurant for dinner on our Route66tour. The chef seemed to be more interested in watching TV than make food. The food was average - so was the service.

The only Chinese in Tucumcari. But that doesn't mean they don't try hard and make great food. Friendly, too. It's a great change from the fast food and the same old boring chains that have taken over many small towns.

My husband and I stopped in Tucumcari for a fun night exploring Rt 66. We're vegetarian and it can be difficult to find places to eat in small towns. Chinese restaurants can offer options, so we decided to check it out. We stuffed our faces with vegetable lo mein, general tso's tofu, vegetable fried rice and egg rolls. It all... More

Went to dinner with 2 friends, the young waitress was more interested in talking to her boyfriend and making phone calls than to properly wait on us. We didn't get plates to eat our appetizers, or sweet and sour sauce for the egg rolls. She never checked on us or offered drink refills. We each ordered an entree to go,... More

Incredibly mediocre Chinese food. That being said, it's an option for vegetarians in an area where there really aren't that many options.
