It was a nasty day outside so we wanted something 'a little more than nice' for lunch. I usually don't do Chinese for lunch, but today we broke the mold. We were greeted by Mama - surely Papa was in the kitchen. The food arrived fresh and very tasty. The service was just like home.. Did I forget - The... More

Not sure what's happening there. It was a good restaurant. I ordered a dinner for 2 and added a almond chichen. $63. No problem if the meal is good. It was not. Not one order tasted good. Last time ordering or going there. Almond chicken had a gravy on it

ordered the dinner for 6, and got the perfect amount of food. Everything was hot and fresh. The menu is versatile, and they are more than willing to substitute. The prices were reasonable, and the restaurant was very clean. We forgot how good the food was. We will be going there again soon.

Visiting relatives in Trail. They decided to order take out dinner. Order was placed and pickup was ready in 30 minutes. Food arrived hot and fresh with no added MSG. Yes it is Western Chinese food, but it is VERY good Western Chinese food. They don't pretend to be anything else. Would recommend!

The "Canton Cafe" and "Ace of Taste" chinese restaurants are next door neighbors - and they could be twins. Both share a small menu and food that is more Canadian than Chinese. The food is very, very average and a bit bland. Yes, it is completely edible - just don't expect anything above "average".

It has been around since I was young and the owners have known me since I was still in my mother womb. When I am in the mood for some Chinese food, I always drop by and say hi to to the owners and have my usual meal
