The staff is friendly and helpful enough, and the place is generally quite accessible. The big pan from our latest visit was that almost all of the "hot food" was STONE COLD. Also, the selection seemed to have shrunk down a little from the previous visit in the winter. (no roast beef, and very few prawns, for instance...) I was... More

I think 'no frills' might be the best description of the restaurant, the food and the ambience. We offered our visitors a choice of food, and they decided that Chinese was a must-do. We did explain the limited offerings in Penticton but we decided to give this place a go. Overall, I'm afraid I wasn't impressed - the underfilled trays... More

Food was not hot enough when we visited - we mentioned this to management, The lady took the temperature of the food in the trays and confirmed this. She advised we take from the bottom closer to the heat element. This restaurant is generally very good but some days are better than others obviously

We order from them all the time! Large portions, always fresh and friendly staff. Definitely the best Chinese in Penticton.

The only other time I had been to this restaurant, it was horrendous. I shuddered when my sister invited me to join her there for supper. I went - but not happily. I was pleasantly surprised. It was quite tasty and the staff was pleasant and attentive to our needs. The food was hot, well cooked and well seasoned. I'm... More

Food is poor quality, had Lemon chicken that was rock hard unable to cut it, the noodles were bland and greasy, the squid had deep fried shrimp mixed with it, the Won Ton Soup wasn't good either. I stopped in here because they had a a banner voted best Chinese Buffet in Penticton, clearly the town of Penticton doesn't impress... More
