    Everything is amazing. If it's your first time, tell them and they'll give you a bunch of samples.

    Disappointed, long time customer but got ripped off tonight. Portion of carnitas was pitiful.

    Funky spot offering a hybrid of Asian bowls and fast-food Mexican cuisine that boasts a pistol-packin', sombrero-wearin' Pancho Villa-like panda for a mascot, appropriately named "Pancho Panda." Read more

    Creations include chile relleno and spicy jade red chicken on rice, but you can also get burritos and quesadillas here, too. For dessert there are snickerdoodle cookies, just like you used to get. Read more

    I'd recommend driving to the original one. This place has gone to rot. I'm not going back.

    I love that they give samples, and they even have a gluten-free menu. I recommend the jade red chicken (in a burrito!)

    Instead of "Chinese + Mexican," think "Carribean." Now you've got it!

    Great place for a lunch if you are ok with dry food. Cheap and tasty food.. I had the Pollo Diablo with Jerk chicken fried rice. I also really liked the cookie/biscuit that came with the dish.

    The pre-order sampler is a must for newbies, the red jade chicken really is that good, and a giant meal + beer will cost you about $10. Bring your appetite and you will be rewarded handsomely.

    Go to the one on 19th ave and Greenway - better taste for some reason. I've been going to both locations for years, this location never is as good.

    Have one of the ladies there go over the menu with you. The items are unusual but some of the best Mexican or Chinese we have had. There is something for everyone and the portions are large.

    Chile Relleno and any Asian Chicken! Order and enjoy. Just stay away from the black beans, they're horrible. If you need beans, get the pinto.

    Never go to chino bandito (chandler) late evenings or on slow days. Never fails, rice is crunchy and just bad food compared to normal days

    I see the Chandler location is now using the phoenix's stores written order form. If you're new to chinos, good luck deciphering the ordering form. Confusing for new folks and irritating for regulars

    Jerk chicken is amazing here but don't forget to stuff a burrito or quesadilla with an entrée item. I.e. machaca quesadilla
  • Zyrion L.

    Every other weekend (Sat & Sun), they serve Volcanos instead of the snickerdoodles... It's like the secret love child borne Devil's Food cake and brownies, but better! Best cookie you'll ever have!

    I was there yesterday for the first time. Could not believe the amount for food you get for under 9$. Very tasty. Not Vegetarian friendly definitely not vegan friendly.
