My husband and I went here for the first time last night for dinner, it was delicious. The food is very fresh and crispy. There are not a lot of options , maybe 10 but that was enough. I loved the spring rolls. The waitress was extremely friendly and attentive. We will definitely be return customers and we took their... More

Popped in on a Sunday night for the buffet (Only available Friday thru Sunday). Only about 11 items laid out plus the option to have soup brought to the table. Was thoroughly surprised by the quality. The husband and wife owner team do everything. He cooks while she serves. All the items are freshly made on site each day. No... More

The food was excellent. The service was friendly and the dishes were served in minutes. We ended going on a non buffet night which was fine by us and because of this we were the only ones in the restaurant. If you want a quiet dinner out this is the time to go( mid week ).

This is my favourite Chinese restaurant in Ontario! I have always been treated well and the food Always tastes great. Yes the weekend buffet is on the small side but it’s all HOMEMADE and Delicious.

My son and I had a rare dinner together this past weekend and we ended up here. The food was very tasty -- the ribs are perfection. There is a small but tasty selection of food on the buffet but they also have takeout and a menu to order from. The downfall is that the one waitress does everything and... More

We stumbled upon this little gem while passing through Brighton. This is one of those family run Chinese restaurants where the wife is the waitress and the husband is the chef. Everything is made fresh and in-house. As others have said, the atmosphere isn't something to wow about. We ordered chicken balls, honey garlic ribs, chicken veg almonds, and the... More

We go regularly for the buffet... food is hot... not a large quantity but excellent quality... fresh and crunchy.... not overcooked veggies... Sometimes they run out of food on the buffet table but at least you know it is fresh...

Thank Dave Jean S
