It took 35 minutes for food to come--service was very slow in a near empty pre-lunch crowd restaurant. The server was indifferent. This was once Santa Fe's best Chinese--but now basically the town has no Chinese food worth eating. The dishes have become more generic....More

We were a group of seven & the host seated us promptly. The food was fabulous; served in a reasonable amount of time & the wait staff was friendly & professional. One dish was Kung Pao w/delicious sauce. The Thai basil chicken had an unforgettable...More

Very diverse menu of Asian dishes. Service is professional. Beer and a decent wine list. Don’t be put off by the shopping center location. Decor is inviting.

When I saw they had Noodles, it captured my attention. Average place - I ordered the special plate and it wasn't so good. Was expecting more of it. Plate size is ok but no flavor at all. Chicken rice was gross. Will not come back

This is some of the worst Asian food I have ever had. Chow Fun was just awful. They need to find a chef with some authentic recipes who likes food. Big disappointment.

Our friends we're traveling with had eaten here before. It was our first time. The food is fresh and different than typical Chinese restaurant. It was quite tasty! Highly recommend it.

My recent visit to Santa Fe took me to this restaurant twice. I would have never gone the 2nd time but friends so wanted to try it. We unfortunately had the same waiter both times. He was abrupt, rude, in a hurry and at one...More

OK, I get it, some restaurants close during the lunch and dinner hours. But if you close at 2, and seat a family at 1:30, what are you expecting? We became the only diners in the restaurant by 1:45. Then all of the staff retired...More
