We ordered egg rolls, house fried rice and the beef with broccoli dish around 9pm for pick-up (they do not do delivery). It was ready when we got there at 9:20pm for pick-up. The egg rolls tasted great - they were not greasy; the house...More

The restaurant closes at 11:00PM but I was managed to call in around 10:30PM and got the takeout. The price is average but the amount of food is considered as large portion compare with other Chinese food outlet. Overall, ideal place for late night meal.

Excellent food & service plus parking in downtown St. John's. Fresh food & large portions. It's even better next day. It's kind of a forgotten gem in St. John's.

Never disappointing the staff are great and so is the food. Always a busy spot but usually no problem getting a table. Take out option is very popular as well.

Bland food and very little of it. I was very disappointed and will not be returning. Best part of my meal was the Mountain Dew!

Small, flavourless deep fried appetizers. Don't think the chicken balls were homemade. If they were, they tasted leftover. Frozen mixed veggies in the rice...unreal! Egg roll had very little filling or flavour. Very bland meal overall. Can't believe all the great reviews for this place....More

This is by far the best Chinese food in the city. Great selection and super fast service. It is so fast that if you want to enjoy your appetizer, you better order that first while you are deciding on your meal.
