The menu items we selected for our evening meal were the minced beef & Chinese parsley soup, deep fried Tiger prawns, smoked duck, braised cabbage and ham and steamed rice. The soup and the smoked duck were especially enjoyable.

This restaurant is in the Terra Nova Shopping Village - a mere block from our house so we come here often. It saves us from going to downtown Richmond and into all the crazy traffic in that area. The food is great and the service is friendly. We are not Chinese and I like the fact that the staff explains... More
