We discovered this little restaurant about a year ago and now eat here at least a couple times a month. My son especially loves the combination fried rice! If you want inexpensive, fast, good Chinese food this is the place!

Food is so tasty and such a large variety to choose from. Small and quaint little restaurant in shopping center. A few booths to eat in or just take out. Come here about 6 times a month!

How good a Chinese restaurant can be in the dessert? It actually can be really good! Ordered Kung Pao beef and Ma Po tofu, both were very delicious!

for those that think the Panda Express is authentic Chinese cuisine. Skip this joint for China Bistro in Indio. Great food and service by this family.
