PHX: Prime Chinese Restaurant

Has anyone been to the Prime Chinese Restaurant at Camelback and Central lately? I use to go regularly when I lived near downtown but haven't been there in years. I was in the neighborhood today and thought I'd check in on it, but I found it unexpectedly closed during lunchtime. Does anyone know if it's still in business?

    That's funny. I am in the Camelback/ Central area daily for many years and I've never seen or heard of this restaurant.

      It's in a strip mall on the north side of Camelback just a block or two west of Central Ave. It's just west of the litte building housing Stinkweeds and Frances, as well as another building with an auto parts store (I think). It's still listed in Google Maps. I'll have to try the phone number sometime.

          Thanks. Maybe it's just closed for Saturday lunch.

      The Prime is open. You can miss it easy. It's set back from the road. Look for the book store. I am a salesman and eat there once a month or more. Good food without a lot of corn starch. Great prices. It's not elegant but it works for me. I also like the Bamboo Grill at the west end of the big shopping center on the SW corner of I-17 and the 101.
