Always great portion and very fair price. I love the cold rice noodles limited on Saturday. It will be nice if they got this more chewy texture and served in a regular daily basis.

Randomly stopped here cuz the restaurant I was planning on trying was closed. Only here for the day and am so glad I came here. The food was fantastic, the braised beef noodles were some of the best even compared to when I lived in Asia.

Food is okay, but the lady owner has the worst ever attitude I’ve encountered at campus town area. Could you ever think of this way, that we asked the difference between two dishes in terms of their soup base, just because we want to make sure and order food, instead of trying to argue with or challenge you?

I was introduced to this wonderful restaurant by a friend of mine she is a Chinese food gourmet as I am. With my first meal in this restaurant I can attest this is a an as authentic as it could be Chinese food restaurant in the USA. In addition It is clean, neat with pleasant service . Plus The price is very reasonable considering the inflation. I recommend this restaurant to you without reservation.

great food at a super good price point. i come here at least twice a week, and i always get their dumplings, but the braised beef noodle soup and wonton chicken soup is also really good. can’t say enough about this restaurant.

I was on campus taking care of business when I stopped by for lunch. It was relatively packed with students by 11am on a Wednesday, but they were able to get my order prepared quickly. As it was rainy and cold, i ordered beef noodle soup (#101). The serving size was decent. I was pleasantly surprised with the vegetables and half egg that came with the noodle. The only thing that i would add to it was a touch of chili oil. I suppose i could have asked them to make it spicy!

Ordered a few dishes when visiting the place. It was beyond our expectations. We ordered classics braised chicken, braised pork ribs, fried bok choy and noodles with braised beef. They were all tasty and had good portions. In addition, the three dishes came with free rice. The prices were pretty fair. Very good deal.

Really good value for the dishes here. The portions are good, and the flavor is good as well. I don't have enough experience with X'ian food to compare, but i thought the food tasted delicious. The lamb bun bread i believe is supposed to be a little dryer, but i think the one we might might have been stale? It seemed a little too dry. Fortunately, we could dip that bun in the sauce and soup of the noodles dishes we got, and it was awesome for that. Service is pretty bare bones, but you should expect that at a place like this.

4.5 stars. Great portions at great price. To me this is an inexpensive comfort food place. The lunch express they have is fast and tasty and only around 9 dollars after tex. Steamed pork with preserved vegetables, Sichuan Fried Chicken (not sure if it's the English name they have on the menu) are must tries. Everything I've gotten from this is great except the soup noodles - the broth is generally flavorless. The cashier lady does complain a lot and has a very strong opinion lol.

My favourite Chinese restaurant in town. All of their menu is so affordable and the portion size is huge. Their garlic noodles and tofu griddle is amazing! Highly recommend for anyone wanting some good food in town

This place is a hidden gem. I had walked past it many times and finally decided to try it. I ordered the spicy szechuan chicken and added on a chicken soup. The soup was light and flavorful with a generous amount of chicken. The entree was divine, perfectly crispy chicken bursting with flavor and by far the best iteration of this dish in the area (better than cravings, lao szechuan, etc). The plating was exceptional and far better than I would have expected for the price point, total cost of the meal was around $15. Great service, very authentic, and it will become part of my regular rotation.

Pictured: 25. steamed pork with preserved vegetables (bottom) and 701. sliced beef and ox tongue in chili sauce (top) which are both MUST TRIES.TIP: call the restaurant to order or order there because the menu is much cheaper than through a delivery app or yelpI've been here multiple times now and I have to say that it's become my go to for inexpensive authentic Chinese food in CU. Almost everything I've had has exceeded expectations. It's feels like comfort food to me, and you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. The dine in experience is very casual and I usually get to-go. The place is a little hard to find, but once you've been there it's worth coming back to.

honestly i love this place, everytime I've gone, I've really loved the soups I've gotten. dont expect a upscale restaurant, its a pretty small family run business.

Today I ordered a beef stewed bun after seeing pictures of it on their website.What I was served could classify as a hate crime. Stale bread and tiny strings of beef drier than beef jerky.The spicy pork noodles tasted alright, but I wouldn’t feel comfortable returning.
