Finally had a chance to check out this famous Phoenix dining spot. It did not disappoint. It is in a strip mall, and has no bells and whistles . . . but the food makes up for it. I had the Red Jade Chicken with the plain fried rice, and both items were delicious. Fresh, hot and the Red Jade... More

Their in house made Snicker Doodle cookies are soo good and come with every meal - always worth a stop when I'm in Phoenix! Not sure what to get? - They... More

Red Jade chicken with egg foo young. Jerk fried rice - the perfect combination. I've been coming here for years & the food is always delish! No one makes egg foo young like Chino Bandito's. It's the best.

Concept: Weird. Cool. Love it. I think they've done a great job of blending two great cuisines; Mexican and Chinese. If they had an Italian blend, there would be no need for any other restaurants. My favorite is the Emerald Chicken and Machaca beef (as a burrito). My partner loves the Jade Chicken and Diablo Chicken as entrées. Feed two... More

Take your pick. Mexican, Chinese or combine them both. Took a minute to figure out the menu but if you get confused they will walk you thru it. Had carnitas and hand grenade chicken with fried rice and re fried beans. Like I said, combine them. The food was good and plenty of it for $9.00. Lots of choices and... More

Atmosphere, Meh, food, delicious, must try the egg foo yung, the chicken diablo is awesome, in fact all of the food is great, ordering takes some getting used to but the staff is more than happy/willing to assist and even offer tastings, if you're a Snickerdoodle fan, you're in luck. They've been on Diners, Dives and Drive Ins, check it... More

Best food ever. Look at the people in the line, police, firefighters, criminals, roofers, computer nerds, mechanics, pilots, executives, teenagers and retired people all standing in line together. The food is amazing. Emerald Chicken and Jerk fried rice will simply blow your mind!

This is a place I had wanted to go forever, heard nothing but positive things about it and everybody was right. The food is fresh, flavorful and hot. I like spicy and the combinations are endless. You can't go wrong with any of the food here.
