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.

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...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
