We were there with a large group (50 people) and expected it to be a slow meal, but I wasn't expecting 2.5 hours. The servers were friendly but only two for our large group so it took a very long time, and two of the group were completely forgotten when the meals were brought out. My husband and I ordered...

Family get together - been a long time since I ate here or any "Chinese" restaurant where bright red sugary sauce substitutes for sophisticated spicing and flavours. Proportions were large but flavour was "blah"

The food is still good with good lunch special prices, but this restaurant is in real need of a renovation. It is so run down that you feel like you are walking back in time. The atmosphere is not for a good dining experience. Take out is you're best option but it could be so much more.

I was very disappointed with this food. Nothing like it was when the Chows owned the restaurant. The egg roll was very peppery and the food came piled high on a very small plate. It looked horrible as there was no room and food and sauce kept spilling off onto the table no matter how hard I tried to keep... More

This is a no frills Chinese restaurant that offers good service, good food, decent portions and all at fair prices. What's not to like.
