China Doll (Colorado Springs, Colorado)

China Doll Restaurant
~ 3629 Star Ranch Rd, Colorado Springs, CO 80906 ~ (719) 579-8822 ~ doordash.com ~

Review by Leaf McGowan/Thomas Baurley, Technogypsie Productions ~

One of my favorite quick Chinese buffets in Colorado Springs, China Doll has a small buffet lunch-time weekdays with some of my favorite dishes. The price is right, the service is fabulous and friendly, and the food is good. What more could you ask? While a medium sized restaurant nestled in a strip mall, on the southwest side of town, it caters to the Army and Air Force the most, it is never too crowded or busy because of its remoteness – so guaranteed seating and not having to wait. I have yet to partake of the menu ordering experience but the buffet is great. Rating: 4 stars out of 5 (visited 1/29/18)

Asian Cafe, Canberra

Asian Cafe
* Melbourne Building
32 West Row * City * Canberra, * 2601 * Australia Capital Territory, Australia * (02) 6262 6233 *

Hungry from running around between the museums and sights in Canberra, I eagerly went for some Asian cuisine at the Asian cafe in the Melbourne building just across from the Canberra Museum and Art Gallery. Very spacious, very comfortable, fast and friendly service with a good assortment of Malaysian and Chinese dishes to choose from. They only serve lunches and dinners from 11:30 am – 2:30 pm, 5 pm until 9:30 or 10:30 on the weekends. Entrees range from $-11.80, with main dishes from 12.80 to 22.80 AUD, so definitely higher priced than normal (or what I’m used to). They are BYOB (wine only) and offer a $6 corkage per bottle. Rating 3.5 stars out of 5.

An Nam Vietnamese Restaurant (Fountain, Colorado)

An Nam Vietnamese Restaurant

6928 Mesa Ridge Parkway Fountain, CO 80817-1533 * (719) 390-8700 *

A great little hidden away Vietnamese restaurant on the outskirts of Fountain, Colorado (in a strip mall). Never too crowded, extremely friendly staff, and delicious food – and decently priced as well. The Chinese and the Vietnamese menu offerings are all very good. The Pho is to die for. Not bad Sake either. The ambiance is a little plain – but the service and cuisine makes up for the setting. Always a top-notch experience. Rating: 4 stars out of 5.


Tony Cheng’s Seafood Restaurant (Washington, D.C.)

Right in the heart of China Town, near the Verizon Center not far from the National Mall, is this large Chinese Seafood Restaurant with Asian delight. A Blue Ribbon Winner restaurant rated Axxes Top 50 Restaurant has great food that this reviewer can stamp satisfaction on. However, on my visit, while friendly, the waittress was pushy and wanting to move customers in/out quickly even though the place was empty and didn’t have too many patrons at the moment which soured some of the experience. The food however was fabulous. I had the Shrimp Kung Pao which hit the spot and was sensational. A side of spring rolls added extra delight. The cost of the dishes were higher than they should have been and that was a dampener as well. Rating: 3.75 stars out of 5. Visited 2/18/09.

Blue Moon Asian Cuisine (Denver, Colorado)

Blue Moon Asian Cuisine * 2188 S Colorado Blvd * Denver, CO 80222 * (303) 782-4888

One of my favorite restaurants! An Ethnic Asian restaurant that offers Japanese sushi, Vietnamese noodles, Thai curries and Chinese stir-fry dishes; two-for-one sake and dollar sushi specials every day! The service is great, the ambiance perfect, and the sushi fabulous. The times I’ve tried the thai I was also very impressed with. One of the top restaurants in Denver. Rating: 5 stars out of 5.
