My family and I loved the food and we're not vegetarians. We ordered dumplings, curried noodles but the rock star on the menu was definitely the green beans. Also enjoyed the tea selection. The staff was welcoming and the price was very reasonable. We're over...More

Terrific vegetarian food with lots of flavour and the best service. We love the black pepper nuggets, the house fried rice and the mushroom and bok choy dishes, but really, you can never go wrong here.

My daughter loves Scrambled Eggs with Tomato, I enjoy Dry-sautéed String Beans, and my husband is satisfied with Eight-Gem Tofu. A nice place to go if you would like a homemade style Chinese food as traveler.

We are regulars, trying the many and varied meals. Relaxing and uplifting setting, with attentive and enthusiastic service. Not for fast meals, though take out is available and very popular.
