A small "hole-in-the-wall" Chinese restaurant tucked away between Target and Chuck-E-Cheese that can be easily overlooked. The lights are usually dimmed and from the street it looks closed at first appearance, but don't let that fool you. Overseas 101 have some the best Chinese food in Colorado Springs. The food is extremely reasonably priced with lunch specials being around $7 and dinner around $9 with all entrees served with a choice of rice (fried or steamed), soup (egg drop, hot & sour or wonton soup) and an egg roll and cheese wonton too. Many other Chinese restaurants in the area will charge extra for what is given at Overseas 101. The restaurant is family owned and operated by a sweet older couple. The lady is as sweet as can be...she reminds me of my grandma calling everyone, "Honey or Sweetie" smiling while telling you to, "Have a nice day and come back soon!" The restaurant is quite small and poorly lit most of the time, but the atmosphere is quite and welcoming.
We have been regulars at Coal Mine for many years. Best place to take someone for lunch or dinner! Combinations are extremely affordable. The portions are HUGE! The Egg Foo Young (only available as a combo during lunch* but full portion as entree for dinner) is OUT OF THIS WORLD! Excellent Sesame Chicken, Mooshu, Orange Beef, BEST WONTON SOUP we have ever had! The staff is always super friendly, pleasant and accommodating. I do not recommend the General Taos Chicken for take out as it gets soggy quickly, but as an in-house-entree it is fabulous!! The dumplings are amazing! Fried or Stramed you will not be dissapointed! Lunch Combos are SO affordable and include complimentary hot-tea and fortune cookies. Seriously good Chinese. Best bang for your buck experience! They shove MUSAK playing most of the time, but sometimes to get a treat of oriental symphonies to accompany your meal. :) Craving Chinese? Head to Coal Mine Dragon.
Colorado Springs Food Guy visited Moon Star II Moon Star 2 Chinese Restaurant located at 5873 Palmer Park Blvd, Colorado Springs, CO 80915. This is a casual but quaint restaurant decorated with modern Chinese flair. Moon Star II serves most of their dishes family style with huge portions to be shared. They also have single-serve dishes. I sampled the Orange Chicken and the Dieter’s Chicken dishes and they were but delicious. The Orange Chicken is definitely the best I have had in Colorado Springs. The Dieter’s Chicken was a delightful mix of chicken and fresh vegetables steamed to perfection. They put the sauce on the side to reduce the salt and calories. I love this restaurant and highly recommend it. The staff is friendly and helpful. If you are in the mood for some great Chinese food at a reasonable price, then visit Moon Star II.
For the first time, I ordered dinner for delivery. The total was 10% higher than the online menu stated even though it states "free delivery w/$15 minimum" and also taking into consideration sales tax. I still gave the driver a tip because I'm sure that wasn't his fault. I was shorted part of my order and the food wasn't good at all. It wasn't disgusting, but it wasn't good. This is confusing because I've eaten there, dine-in, for lunch on several occasions and always received good food at a good price. Even though it was a small sum, I still feel ripped off. I don't know whether I'll give them another chance.
One of the good Chinese places in the Springs. I'm on a constant search for great sesame chicken and this place doesn't have it, but they do great things with other Chinese dishes. The Mongolian Beef is one of my favorites. Delivery is fast and affordable. And the staff is so friendly!
For the better part of 10 years I've recommended this place to my hotel guests. I've never had anyone complain. The food is very good, fast service and generous portions. I order from them myself as well. If you live in the north end, do yourself a favor and try them.
China Gourmet is the very BEST Chinese restaurant in town! The food is delicious, the servings are generous, the prices are great, and the staff is professional and very friendly. You may have to wait when it is busy, so call ahead if you are in a hurry. Yum Yum
When my order was messed up, both the person taking my order and the manager were so rude. I didn't get what I ordered, and they have a numbered menu - which I thought made it easier. I ordered Kung Pao Combo; what I got was Kung Pao Bad Customer Service.
Love Chinese Food ... Always wonderful here with friendly folks as well. They are reasonable, portions are good, and dishes are the best. You like Chinese, you'll love the Jasmine Cafe! Give em a try ... you won't be sorry. We're regulars now!
My family and I went there tonight for dinner since we craved Chinese. Service was great and so was the food. Picked up a delivery menu as it'll be the only place we order from here in town.
