Buffet - all you can eat gone bad. Product isn't very fresh. They seem to really squeeze the cost out of everything. The place still has the decor from the previous restaurant - some denny's sorta place. Dirty - Felt I need to wash my hands before, during and after eating

Popped in for a quick bite and was just what I wanted. Egg fried Rice with chicken was good and had a couple of egg rolls that were very nice. In and out in less than 20 minutes.

A very bad experience.
Owner was shouting at me because I brought in a bottle of water, even though I had asked to do so and she had said O.K.

May have been the shouting, but the oil also tasted off.
Threw the entire thing in the trash. Something I can never recall doing.

This was a vacation. Not something I wanted or expected.

This restaurant was within walking distance of our motel. We decided to try it. Mistake! The meals were served in carry-out cartons. It was very hard to get to the pieces of meat with the weak plastic forks. All sauce was in the pool at the bottom of the carton. The chicken in the sesame chicken was overcooked and dry. Left more than half of our meals.

We were staying in Gardiner, MT for the night and had some trouble finding a place that was open past 9pm that wasn't a 'saloon'. We found this little Chinese restaurant completely by accident. It was tucked away in a little strip mall across from our BW hotel. The owners were just about to close up as well but generously offered to make us some food for take out. We had the Sesame Chicken, Triple Delight, Vegetable Lo Mein, steamed rice and egg drop soup. It was all delicious! The portions were very generous; the vegetables were crisp and fresh; and the rice was perfectly steamed. We didn't really know what to expect especially with food made at the last minute but it was all fabulous. From the sign posted on their restaurant window, they're only open for supper from "5 pm 'till closing" which was 9:30pm the night we showed up at their door step. The owner said they stay open later during the summer when tourists visiting Yellowstone Park fill up the hotels: "...sometimes until midnight...". The restaurant itself is a little off-putting; it has a fast-food restaurant feel. The extremely bright fluorescent lighting probably doesn't seem as bright during the day when natural light comes through the windows but, at night, it's glaring. We would have taken our order out even if we'd come in earlier for supper. There is some seating outside which, during the warmer months, is probably very nice since it's a fair distance above the main road. Don't let the look of the restaurant turn you off. The food more than makes up for the atmosphere.
