We went here for dinner and had their two of their special "daily listings" the Thursday and the Saturday dinners. Thursday's was a spicy (to your level of heat) prawn dinner and Saturday's was almond chicken. Both came with a good quantity if steamed rice and vegetables. They also came with a small bowl of their wonton soup as a starter, and a dish of ice cream for dessert. Plenty of food for two but we ate it all and were full.
The service was excellent and friendly. The building exterior doesn't look like much but the interior with it's old Victoria brick walls and their choice of posters and painting, was quite pleasant.

At first sight, it is really disappointed but the people (owners) who serve you are funny, polite and really nice. The buffet is very small and not much choice. I took the diner for one, Combination A and it was good, but stay away from the dessert as they did not give me what was on the menu, but something that you can buy easily at any grocery store for 50 cents. The originality of this place is they put nickname on every chairs and the people who works there are nice.

The food here is great if you like typical westernized Chinese dishes. The service however might be the friendliest service in town. If you're ever feeling down, come to this place and they'll turn your frown upside down.

This place is an absolute gem. The buffet items were fresh and brought out in small batches. The sticky rice was the best I've had. The owners go to the nth degree to make sure that you are comfortable and taken care of. If you're downtown and hungry for a great Chinese meal, this is the place to go.
