What an interesting mix of Mexican and Chinese food. We brought a family of seven here and everyone enjoyed it even the picky 11 yr old boy. The jerk chicken and the Jade red chicken were both super good. If you put them in a quesadilla or burrito it's the same price and it makes the meal a bit bigger.... More

I have been eating at Chino Bandido's since 2005. It has always been good, and I have never had a negative experience with them. Friendly workers serving delicious Chinese Mexican fusion.

Always a great experience coming to this restaurant. Food is prepared quickly and served directly to your table. I love the mix of Chinese and Mexican food. Chino Bandido is original in that aspect as i have never seen another restaurant that serves a blend of the two. The restaurant is always kept clean and staff are friendly to help... More

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

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
