We thought we'd give it a go and to be honest, the food was really good! We had the tasting menu, had soup, sprint roll, orange beef which was delicious, general chicken, prawns, vegetables and rice. Followed by pudding, tea/coffee. We enjoyed it - it doesn't get 5 stars as the place is dated inside and the pudding had very... More

I ordered a few dishes for take out from General Tao. Firstly the prices on the menu were not the prices that were charged to me on the bill. All the items were charged at a dollar or two higher. Only after checking the bill later and asking them was I told that the prices have been increased. Secondly The... More

Our meal last night was one of the best Chinese meals I have had anywhere including China. The restaurant is located in a renovated house not far from the Quebec City Airport-a longish drive from Old Quebec where we were staying. It was worth it. We were greeted at the front door by the host in both English and French.... More

We had General Tao Chicken, Crispy Beef, which was our favourite, and a wonderful plate of mixed veggies with some baby bok choy and a little plain rice. Wow! We will return when... More

Had the 2 course duck menu. Loved every last bite. Their wonton soup has homemade dumplings, their spring rolls are tasty and served with propper sauce, not that cheap plum sauce. The shalacked duck is sliced table-side and served to be rolled in little crêpes. The rest of the duck is then brought back to be shredded and served as... More

This restaurant is set up in a big old house with dining set up throughout the main floor. Very good food, excellent service and an atmosphere of fine dining instead of the typical American Chinese food restaurant.

Pleasantly surprised. A recent family birthday prompted a visit. The duck menu is amazing, we ordered the "two-part" duck. This is a whole duck, first course served with hoisin sauce and wraps, the rest is then stir-fried with vegetables and served as the main course. Tender, flavourful and enjoyed!
