As in, the Johnson. Used to be a wonderful place to eat! The lady that worked (lived) there was such a sweetie and great server! That's is no longer the case. New ownership maybe? Anyways, East Ocean is right next door. Leo will take much better care of you! And your belly!

Stopped here for dinner on the night before a meeting. My wife had the ginger chicken and I had the combo of chow mein, rice, egg roll and chicken balls. Both dishes were good. Will return.

I was pleasantly surprised with how great the food was! We ordered won ton soup and it was some of the best I've ever had. Lots of pork and vegetables. We also shared the curried beef and the vegetable noodles. Both were really good, but there was something about the noodles that was just amazing! It was light and flavourful... More

While the outside of this place won't get you excited at all, the restaurant offers very good Canadian Chinese food at reasonable prices. The deep fried bits weren't greasy and the veggies were nicely done. The washrooms (well, men's at least) needs a renovation in a bad way.
