    We dined with friends, which made the experience even better because we got to try dishes we would not usually order. We were happy with every dish we all ordered. This is the best chinese food in the Coachella Valley. Always taste fresh and yummy. The experience start to finish is first rate. Would recommend to anyone and everyone I know.

    Best Asian food in the desert. Prices are moderate to expensive but you really get well prepared and healthy portions for your money. Only problem is the noise level. Peoples voices carry and noises bounce off the walls at high levels and interfere with moderate conversations. Not casino noise, people noise. Otherwise very good.

    The restaurant was very busy but staff were very pleasant and hellpful. Wait staff and hostess were awesome. Food portions are wonderful size but Id rather have a better quality meat instead of double portion of something lower quality. The chicken lettuce wraps were bland and tasteless. Moo goo gai pan loved the veggies but the meal was too salty and I didnt need that much meat. the sauce was good.

    Sweet and sour soup is really bad, the calamari was over cooked, chewy and tough, the honey walnut shrimp was cold. The rest of our order (3 other entree items) were hot and just fine though not remarkable. Since the restaurant is located in Fantasy Springs Casino, we ate there before a show. For the convenience it is an okay place to eat. If it had to stand on it's own, I don't think I would recommend eating there.

    We have not been real happy with any of the Chinese we've found in the area. But we are so glad we chose this that night! The food was top-notch and the service was the best! At first we thought it a bit pricey, but then realized it's family-style and so everyone ordered one thing and we shared! When we were finished, we had some leftover. We only wish we could have taken it with us! I might ask them next time if they could hold it in the refrigerator for us while we're at our show, I just didn't think of it then. Best Mushu pork ever!, the panfried noodles were yummy! as were the egg rolls, the dimsum dumplings and the snow peas. Really! Give this place a try! We like fantasy Springs Casino so we will definitely be back.

    Walnut Shrimp was excellent, however the Bass Fillet was not as expected; to soft, was breaded and deep fat fried and drowned in red sweet sauce (glaze). On line reservation was excellent to use.

    We look forward to eatting at the restaurant yearly when attending the Desert Circuit Horse Show. Service was terrible. Had to ask for refills of water and hot tea. We had to flag down our waiter to take our order and once the food was served never came by to ask how the food was. One of the items ordered never came so we had to flag him down to ask about it. I called days in advance of my reservation to add a guest to my party and was told the restaurant coud not accomodate. I checked back the day of my reservation to see if there were any changes and again told no. There was room to put an additional person on our table. What was annoying was while seated I overheard a party of 4 with no reservation able to demand a table.

    Lunch was very reasonably priced. The wonton soup was the best I've ever had with large stuffed wontons and broth filled with lots of slivered pork & bok choy leaves. The general tso chicken & kung pao chicken dishes were excellent with lots of vegetables. The fried rice and spring roll that came with the entree were also very good. The spring roll was perfectly prepared and not greasy. Everything was hot and fresh! The service was excellent. Besides the waiter and his helper stopping by frequently, the hostess and the manager also stopped by to check on us during our lunch.

    The food was great. Especially the Spring Rolls and 3 Chicken Dish. Two complaints. First with a reservation since November for dinner in February, I was still placed in the bar for dinner. Other couples who came after me without a reservation were placed in the main dining area. The other complaint is that service was very slow, especially when it came time to pay the bill.
