Food was average. The taste was okay but the restaurant seemed dirty so I didn't enjoy the food as much. There were a lot of people waiting and a lot of deliveries so the place is popular but if you visit the restaurant before you order then you may change your mind! The lady serving was nice but the cooks in the background seemed a little rude to her. She seemed to brush it off. They have a little chinese grocery section with lots of items that is convenient if you like to make chinese food at home.

We had a few combos with basic Canadian style chinese...everything deep fried but also ordered a szechuan chicken and general chao chicken that were good.

I find there are not many Chinese take outs that give you good tasting food and a fair quantity for your money. This place has been around a long time but I have never been dissatisfied with their food. There is a good menu and plenty of choices. It's a dark little place and many may not think that it's worth while to go in when you look at the building. I guarantee that the food will surprise you.

Spent $50.00 here on Tuesday nite. Used to be a favorite. The last few times has a lot to be desired. Food not fresh. Spare ribs dried out. There were 2 very large pieces of ginger in the ribs . Thought they were ribs. Chicken was almost non existent in chicken balls. Rice was undercooked.Pork was dried out. My very favorite soup was gross. Don`t know why this place has gone so far down hill but we won`t spend another cent here. We lived too far away to make another trip to town to take it back. 3 of us ate a bit but most thrown in garbage. Also general tai`s chicken was mushy. Not even sure what it was. We were actually afraid to eat it.

It's a hole in the wall and inexpensive. We got a combo #2 and it was your standard variety with rice, chicken chow mien, ribs, chicken and balls. The combo did include a nice soup though :-)

The chicken balls were crispy, the chow mein was soggy, the rice was sticky, the ribs were fatty.

The poor dude behind the counter did not speak English very well and it was difficult to understand how long he said it would be before our take out was ready or what the cost was.

A big plus for me is that they have bubble tea! They only have one flavour and I have no idea what that is but it was pretty good. it had tapioca pearls in it.

We have been ordering from this establishment for probably 20 years or more. Over the years it has been good and it has been bad, but the quality of the food this time was very good. They do not give a dish of rice with any of their orders, so if you wsant rice, make sure you order it on it's own.

We ordered Chicken & broccoli, and cantonese chow mein and hot & sour soup, it came to $32.50 ish.

Take-out only, there is no where to sit and eat, they do sell other chinese food products and accessories.
