This place has been in town for a long time and they are very consistent. It's great having an option for food that doesn't have a bun on it!

We had lunch here twice during our stay in Telluride. The portions are good for lunch, and the dishes include egg roll and soup. The wait staff is very friendly and efficient. The food is very tasteful and fresh. If you like Chinese- go here!

We stopped in for lunch and had some of the most delicious Chinese food that we've ever had! If we lived closer we could easily go here every day. Stop in, it's definitely worth it!
