We have enjoyed this place for years, but you have to know that this is simply not your old fashioned egg foo yung/chop suey place nor does it look like it! Try any of their signature dishes such as coffee chicken and you're in for...More

If you're looking for Asian food while in Santa Fe (I'm not sure why you're not eating southwest) this is the place to go. The spices are perfect and if you ask for hot, it's actually hot and perfect. In a town renowned for good...More

Not your typical Chinese restaurant menu. Very creative and excellent. Decent wine list, reasonably priced. Highly recommend the coffee chicken dish...ask for extra green Bernstein with it.
