Been coming to this restaurant for years and it never disappoint. I miss it though I moved to the suburb a few years ago but it's good to come back to a very familiar site. Service is always good and the food reliable and great as always. Will never tire of coming back and this place is one of my... More

greeted by waitress, drinks came separately, meal brought separately. Hubby had buffet, food was lukewarm, said everything was rubbery and doughy of the coated items like chicken balls, and what meat was inside was like gristle. My meal came from kitchen and only the rice was hot - the lemon chicken was the same - more dough than chicken and... More

I have never been to a restaurant that I would return even if the food is absolute distasteful & expensive. Normally in the wee hours of the morning, after drinking all evening, anything greasy tastes amazing. This was not the case. The boisterous crowd creates a fun & loud animal house atmosphere. Is it Mexico spring break? No, there are... More

So I don't usually blast places like this because it caters to the late night crowd on the way home from the bar. Walked in good looking girls younger crowd music pumping, looks good! We ordered 2 spring rolls, kung pow chicken and tap water, $25 on what I can assume is the "night menu". The slimy slop they brought... More

$17 for 12 pieces of ginger fried beef (mostly crisp dough), $17 for 10 pieces of salt & pepper squid!!! This was by far the worst value for Chinese food that I have ever had. The server then says that their rent is high so that is why serving sizes are small. Go anywhere else people.

Friends and I went here for food after a night at the stampede and "siggy sam's" was alive and bumping. Late night food turned into night life round 2. The music was blasting and the were lines waiting to get in. Food was pricy for just some late night eats but it was a cool experience to see the night... More

Huge menu with plenty of options...Very polite and super fast service. Got there before the club rush and it was peaceful and quiet. Definitely my go-to spot for Chinese food in Canada.

Horrible place!!! Went there right after the bars closed on Saturday. Extremely loud and noisy. They play music louder than the bar we came from. Biggest rip off ever. Ordered 4 items from the menu; dumplings $13, s&p squid $18, fried rice $15 and shanghai noodles $17. All items came immediately about 5 minutes (max.) right after our order was... More

Stay away from the buffet, I went here 2 weeks ago for lunch and got the worst food poisoning of y life. Ended up missing a week of work. The food is old and stale, and I am pretty sure that whatever doesn't get eaten that day is served in the buffet the next day even if it has been... More

I used to really enjoy this place, especially as a late night haunt, but over the last year, prices have gone up (about $16/dish), and servings have shrunk to miserly proportions. Last weekend my party of four ordered spring rolls and 4 entrees, it cost us $80 (no drinks) and we were all still hungry. The food we had was... More
