I know this place looks like a whole in the wall, but the food is fantastic! We used to live in Phoenix and that is when we discovered it. We now return only to visit family, but always make a point to visit Chino! It's one of the highlights of our trip. Their combinations are awesome, but my favorite part... More

Wanting Mexican but not the usual, we searched online and this was the first restaurant that popped up. We were 5 minutes away and hungry. It was 11:20 and we pulled up, opened the door to Guy Fieri's Smilin Face on the wall! I knew we hit the lottery. We walked over to Jimmy who gave us 2 free samples... More

Visited Chino Bandido for the first time a few years ago with some friends. Was intrigued by their menu, and the food I initially ordered was very tasty and an excellent value. Since then I visit at least every other week. The menu is a delightful blend of Mexican, Chinese, and Caribbean... For sweet and spicy, try the Jade Red... More

This is the 3rd or 4th time we've been back to Chino Bandido over the year. The chicken we had here was just a moist, tender and flavorful as the dinner we also had during this trip at Tratto (however our meal at Chino Bandido cost less than $20 vs over $200 for Tratto). The chef's combinations are unique and... More

I have been to Chino Bandido on several occasions and have always enjoyed the food. It is a bit different and I recommend you try samples of anything if you are debating. It is a good place to try, though I recommend going in with an open mind and being able to step outside your typical comfort zone.

We ate here on the last night of our vacation. My daughter, who lives in Phoenix, told us about it so we all made the trip over from Surprise. Nothing fancy. You walk in order, pay, sit down, and they bring the food to you. Good food...really good. Prompt service. Check this place out.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. It is a place where you order, sit down and they bring it to you. Prices were very reasonable and the food was good and hot. Would like a few more condiments, salsa, sour cream. Perhaps we just didn't order quite right.

Okay folks, this is a hole in the wall BUT with fantastic food. They welcome you and if you are new to Chino Bandito they will give you samples to try. I never would have thought that Asian/Mexican food would go together but they pair it beautifully. I love the Jade Red Chicken (sweet and spicy) paired with a Chile... More
