We used to come here regularly 15 years ago and wondered if things have changed. I was expecting cheap and cheerful. Food quality has dropped as noodle dishes tasted of scorched oil , vegetables overdone and tofu/ fish dish overdone with msg. To add insult, prices are about 20% higher for this standard and quantity. So this won't be an... More

They make their own won ton dumplings which are delish, roasted pork with bean curds on rice and spicy chicken with deep fried spinach are my two favourites. In... More

Had supper there last night with the family. We have been going to the restaurant for many years and we have found the service and food has been slowly diminishing. The service last night from the waitress was quite disturbingly rude. The counter service (for payment) was almost as bad. No customer service here. Your just another number they chalk... More

This your typical Chinese restaurant. Big, colourful and no fancy decor. You know it's a good restaurant when 99% of the patrons are Chinese. The server was a delightful lady and very accommodating when I asked for extra Chinese mushrooms. The portions are big so if you're with two people, I'd only order two main plates and on appetizer. Highly... More

The food here is great. I come here regularly. The curried beef brisket is awesome, The spring rolls are among the best in the city and fried rice is well made. Food is pretty good. They don't have combination dinners for one person but they have good food. Service is very minimal. The waitresses aren't overly friendly or attentive. They... More

I liked the fast service, hot steaming tea and the mountain view. The plate I ordered was Beef and Greens with Black Bean sauce on soft noodles. It has been a favourite of mine for a long time. I used to eat there a lot and I looked forward to eating there again. I wasn’t disappointed. The food was tasty... More

Yep, that's how long I've been going to On Lok. They will change the menu to suite your needs, rice noodles instead of egg etc. The black bean sauce is to die for (likely has gluten so I don't get it anymore) as is the chicken and broccoli.
