Ordered takeout from here twice and consistently disappointed. First visit the shrimp & mushroom fried rice was bland - had to add soy sauce to enhance it. Thing is, I ordered shrimp & mushroom chow mein, but didn't say anything as I also like fried...rice. Well, not this one. The 2nd experience was more unsettling. While waiting for my food (wasn't ready on time), I noticed they slightly overcharged me. Not a big deal and wasn't looking for a refund, but just thought I'd point it out because of the price discrepancy on the menu. The guy kept telling me that that price didn't include tax. I told him the total was still incorrect. I only ordered 2 items so told him to add them together and add 5% GST to see what the total should be. He still couldn't get it. More disturbing is that he made no effort to socially distance from me while talking, and wasn't wearing a mask. None of the staff were for that matter, including the cooking staff (his parents) in the kitchen. I would have been more forgivable if the chow mein was good, but it too was bland. And spring rolls saturated with grease. The combination of bland food and lack of Covid precautions is a big red flag. Stay Away! Their competition, Crystal Restaurant, has a much more flavorful chow mein with a generous serving of shrimp. And they are taking Covid more seriously.More

We only started ordering from here when COVID had set in and they were reopen for take out only. The food is amazing, fresh, tasty, and you get lots. We have been back 4 times since April and it's been great every time.

We were met by a "senior" delivery boy who was rather loud to say the least. He certainly didn't add to our "quiet dinner out". The egg fuyung was OK but asked for brown sauce and it came swimming in it. We ordered a #...3 and a # 4, neither dish was anything to write home about. We will not return and we won't recommend for sure. Quite tasteless food to say the least. Instead of the "senior" waiting tables they really do need better staff. Let him do the deliveries.More

Although language was a slight complication, we requested a chicken dish that is not on their regular menu. They met the request by asking for clarity and taking the challenge on. They created the dish and it was great! Thank you.

First time and we could not have been more pleased with everything! Not just the best Chinese food in Merritt but likely the entire province! Service was great, food was just wonderful and the many pleased patrons made it a great meal! Quiet and simple...but very clean and welcoming and the taste would be worth a drive from Vancouver. So glad we stopped in as this was the best meal we have had in this area! It was just the 2 of us but they offer a buffet specially made just for your party if that is what you prefer. Great variety freshly made and at great prices too. Many came to pick up their take-out when we were there. Each dish was tastier than the one before it and the portions were so large even on just the combination dinners that we had enough to take home to have another meal. In downtown Merritt with ample free parking. Just a really nice time and we will definitely go back any time we are even close. Very reasonable pricing on all choices.Management could not do enough to please us. Coffee was especially good and did not stop.More

Visited this restaurant and ordered the sweet & sour pork and beef fried rice. The sweet and sour pork was good but the beef fried rice was mediocre. Price-wise was not expensive nor cheap, $11.50 for the fried rice and $10.50 for the pork.
