Somewhat hard place to find ebeven though just over the road from Marriott Residence Inn. Service awas fine, cost was reasonable, food was good. Fairly soulless atmosphere but I was there for food not the vibe.

This is our favorite Chinese restaurant in the valley. Always authentic, reasonably priced, and flavorful. The atmosphere is not fancy, but the food is the emphasis. You won't be disappointed. Water boiled pork is sensational

I've been down in Arizona for the past two plus weeks in the scorching heat fighting wildfires. The food on the trip has been occasionally decent, but I've been lacking any real cuisine aside from good steaks and pizza. Today, on the last day of...More
