Great food, esp. the ginger beef and special chow mein! Reasonable prices, fantastic buffet and service. Limited parking before 6 PM

Well, if there could be a 0, I'd score this place at that, nothing to do with food - have not tried it. Found this restaurant when were were looking for Chinese food pick up fairly late at night - around 11 pm, so came...in to order there. The person working there offered us the menu and we made our selections, than he left to punch it in on another computer not in front of us (weird but whatever), came back with the bill about 15 bucks higher than expected, both prices different than the menu given at first (yes, I can add and probably 1-2$ would not be noticed but this was almost double of the original amount). I asked why the price is different, he apologized and said he'll make an adjustment. Well, we just turned around and left, as that is not the service we find acceptable. Again don't know about the food, just felt like posting this will make others aware and careful about this place. Not good!!More

They just renovated so nice and newer again, same fantastic ginger beef. Always amazed at how consistently good the food here is. I'm a regular and for good reason.

Went there today for food pick-up! It was first time out to get food every since the lock down in Calgary. The service was amazing, and was given a free entree, I asked why-the server-said we like to help everyone out, as we are all...going thru hardship! I tried to pay and tip, but he said! I was so moved and blown away but this generosity. Truly made my day! Thank you for your kindness-I will forever support you! Good luck and stay strong!More

Have not been there for a while, I went there with my aunt on Friday, Dec 20 for dim sum buffet. To my surprise, the place was packed! The food was not too bad in our opinion. The salt & pepper squid just came out...so it was very nice & crispy, so is the sweet & sour pork(my favorite)! The egg tart was not hot because it was the last one in the tray, but I did get another one later when they bring out the new ones & it was good!More

Ordered "Salt and Pepper Squid" (rated as Spicy), and Shanghai Noodles with Beef and Vegetables for takeout. The doorman was reluctant to let me use the washroom before ordering. I had to ask for Chopsticks, as they DO NOT give chopsticks to "WHITE GUYS" !!...Food was absolutely TASTELESS and my DOG would not eat it I only ordered bcuz the doorman bragged about "the same cooks since they opened more than 30 years ago". THAT IS A LIE !!!! Its my first time to eat here in the last EIGHT years, and its DEFINITELY NOT THE SAME QUALITY/TASTE ! PLEASE.. AVOID this place .....ABSOLUTE CRAP !!!More

I was there on Oct 31st, 2019 and had the lunch bufffet, cold, very cold. The dumplings felt like they had not ever hit a pan, only placed under the lights. Went back Nov 5th to give it another try. Everything was cold, terrible. I...hadn't been in years, have just move office locations and was very excited to go again. Both visits were at 11:45AM, so the food should have been warm at the very least. Won't go back. Too bad. They are surviving on their name I guess.More

A friend and I walked into this place basically sideways after a long night at the hockey game and casino 3AM. We were sat immediately, offered water immediately and our orders were taken immediately. Exactly what I needed. We had tempura veggies, beef and noodles....From what I can remember the portions were large and the food was tasty. Exactly what I needed. This was exactly what I needed.More

I'm always go to Alberta anywhere to work. This time visited my friend at Calgary. I'm trusted the skip ratings 9.7. So we are ordered some food for 5 people. The order just came for 50 minutes. But it was so cold and not enough...for three people. No taste, fried rice cannot eat......etc.More
