Rather than go out for Valentine's Day, and fight the lineups and crowds, we decided to order in. We ordered the Szechuan dinner for 4 to get good variety, and to have left overs for several meals. The food was delivered piping hot, and was excellent. The crispy beef was crispy, not soggy like take out often arrives. The batter... More

Willy's has been around for as long as I can remember (1990?). Great classic Chinese take out with a huge menu. Food is excellent, fast and cheap!

Willies is a long standing Chinese take-out. they have been there many years for good reason. They stay consistent. They rival Golden Palace for the open end egg rolls smaller but way less expensive as well.

We lived in Orleans for 18 years and had never tried Willies. We had a "go to" place we ordered from for many years but after seeing a decline in quality the last while I decided to try some place new. I ordered just a combination plate of fried rice, chicken balls, and guy ding (without celery) for take out.... More

One of our favorite Chinese food take-out places in town. Portions are large. And your staff is friendly & welcoming every time. My personal favorite are that shanghai noodles. I highly recommend him in the air I had on the spicy side.

On our second time as we intended to be regular customers, back we went only to get home and much to our horror the food was terribl, we literally had... More

First time eating there. Decent food. The vegetarian spring rolls have a very different spice that took over the flavour, I couldn't eat them. I found the stir fry dishes tasted good but were heavily loaded with celery and onion, with little carrot and broccoli. I enjoyed the general tao chicken and other dishes. I will continue the hunt to... More

Willie's in an East End institution. While there have been a few recent additions of Thai dishes (which I've never tried), this place serves what I like to call "North American" Chinese food and is does so really well. The food is tasty, the portions are quite large and I find that you get your money's worth. I've never used... More

Worst Chinese food I ever had. Last Monday, we ordered several dishes ($60) for delivery (that is all they do) and were disappointed even before the bag was emptied. The top food containers that did not close had leaked all over and all the rest of the items were covered in sauce. Food was barely warm and crispy beef tough,... More
