We ordered take-out, and the food had no flavor, at all. It was so bland, it was actually hard to eat. Even the fortune cookies were stale.

we had three dishes last night . One was spicy so that was the flavor. The other two were very bland. The hot tea was only lukewarm. The wishes come out one at a time.

Slow service; not enough waitstaff. Bland food that all tastes about the same. Expensive. There are too many tables crowded in and worse they are those horrid banquet tables and chairs. The decor is 1980 - pink walls and awful huge paintings.

Arrived in Los Alamos mid afternoon and was starving. The local Greek place (Pyramid) was closed midday (what's up with that???), so we went next door for Chinese. Although the buffet ended at 2 p.m., the food was good - just higher per person than the buffet would have been. I'd recommend any of the dishes we had - noodle... More

I ordered sweet and sour chicken and vegetable fried rice for takeout. The rice was tolerable, but extremely over-priced. The chicken was mostly soggy breading that tasted like it was a frozen product heated in the oven. Not at all fried and crispy as I expected. The sauce was sweet---period. No tang, no sour, and it was gooey. There were... More

Always busy at lunch. Not so much at dinner. Food isn't great, service is even less so. Quick and reasonably priced

For a small town, Los Alamos has a surprising number of decent Chinese restaurants, and this is probably the best of the bunch. The menu is extensive and samples a number of regional Chinese sub-cuisines, with nothing too out of the ordinary (this isn't San Francisco's Chinatown we're talking about) but enough variety to satisfy. Dinners are served seven nights... More

The food is good, but pricey. Every now and then we'll go there just for a change of pace. Service is just ok. Food is good, but nothing special. We usually go to China Moon just because it's fast and for the money you get more.

The buffet is the best in Los Alamos. They are always very friendly. The food is hot and is constantly being refilled. They place is clean and it's not expensive. I've only been for lunch.
