The food and menu is pretty standard, I think the same menu is printed for every Chinese restaurant, it sure looks familiar! service is very considerate. Overall, it is typical Chinese food. You won't be disappointed, and it will be like most any other place in the world. For the traveler, call ahead with your order when you get to... More

Food is average at best. A soda is $1.50 in a 12 ounce glass with ice and NO FREE REFILLS. Who does that!!! I wanted to change a food item and they wanted a dollar for any change. This was actually a cheaper item on the single item menu, but a dollar more to trade items. Not very service friendly... More

Americanized Chinese food is good. Staff is helpful and friendly! The restaurant is bright and cheery, they have a room that you can reserve for meetings or family gatherings.

If you want huge portions of chinese, you get it here! Bright, very clean and spacious seating area which is not the norm for asian restaurants. This was found on Tripadvisor during a short stop in Rigby between Yellowstone and Salt Lake City. A lucky find!

It's a little home town family owned restaurant that serves basic Chinese food. There is nothing fancy and it is priced so the whole family can eat their fill and take tons home for left overs!

The food here is your average Chinese/American cuisine. Variety of dishes to order individually as well as combo plates. My only problem is the drink policy. You get a glass of soda (extra charge) and it's half full of ice- they don't do free refills!!!! Who doesn't give free refills on soda. It costs them pennies for that small glass... More

Unless you're used to Idaho Chinese food - which is nothing like real Chinese food. We (my husband and I) ate here last Saturday and the food was so bad, we just had to laugh about it. We ordered 3 things and each item that arrived on the table was worse than the last. The egg rolls were so greasy... More
