My favorite Chinese restaurant in Santa Fe. The only Chinese buffet in town. I love that they include spareribs!! Their Shrimp with Lobster Sauce is 2 meals in itself because of the jumbo Shrimp!! Great service. Great food.

I've tried so many Chinese and Asian restaurants for take out in this town. Nothing has been great. Overall, they are the most consistent with what I expect from a typical American Chinese food place. Wonton soup is good. Chicken and broccoli was also not bad at all. Every time I either have lunch there or get take out, it... More

This restaurant is horrible. I don't know how they stay in business. The chicken is fried in fish grease, food is oily, nothing is crisp, vegetables are soggy and service is terrible! Other than that, it's fine.

I eat at their lunch buffet from time to time. It isn't outstanding food but it's good. The place is clean, service is fine. Price is reasonable.

We were walking to find something to eat and came across Yin Yang! We loved it. Nice size portions. Good value. We sat by the window and watched people walk by.

Perfectly serviceable for a quick and easy meal. We didn't feel like a restaurant tonight, so we bought take-away Mongolian beef and fried rice, say in the plaza. Hit the spot.

In a city of great restaurants, most of which serve the local southwestern cuisine, it was a nice surprise to find a good Chinese restaurant. The food was definitely fresh. We shared a pu pu platter which was a delightful assortment of freshly made (and hot!!) appetizers including ribs, chicken wings, spring rolls and teriyaki beef. Our one entree was... More

Love the garlic shrimp appitizer here. Not sure how good the buffet is anymore as I don't get up early enough to get it. But it used to be really good.

We drove by this place looking for a parking spot at the plaza and we could smell the garlicky goodness. After walking around the plaza for a bit, we all agreed we wanted to go back and eat dinner. The staff was attentive and the food rocked! The ambiance was a bit low, which is why we are giving them... More

I've had many things from their menu over the years and have never been disappointed. Usually order togo and it all travels well. Hot and steamy when you open the boxes. Parking is the only downside even with togo... Very close to the downtown area
