I have eaten there numouros time, because its the only Chinese place in town, and when your friends want Chinese i guess that is where you go. The portions are small and 9 times out of 10 I have to send the soup back because it is cold. They do make good shish kabobs .

All the dishes we had at this place were great. The veggie tofu soup was tasty. The basil tofu was delicious and the fried rice was just right.

It is "kinda" hard to envision eating Chinese food in Bandera, The Cowboy Capital of the World. However, the food is excellent.

What is some of the best Chinese fast food ever doing in the cowboy capital of the world!? Kung Pao chicken, Sesame Chicken and Cream cheese crab rangoons😋 However, don't mistake the same good fortune at Boerne location.

Who'd have thought that you could find a decent Chinese food in Bandera, TX? Believe it and try it! Authentic well-known dishes such as General Tso's, Sesame Beef, Egg Drop Soup, and so much more. There's no other place like it in Bandera!
