Wonderful authentic meal, friendly service. The chef's suggestion portion of the menu is a treasure trove of interesting dishes.

We were a bit concerned given their full-page ad in one of the tourist 'where to eat" guides but walked over anyhow. You could probably have a mediocre meal if you stuck with the Westernized options, like (ugh) chop suey. We had the beef pork in chili oil, chicken with potato and green pepper, and the stewed lamb dish. GREAT!... More

Found this on our overnight stay and was very happy we did. The service was prompt and very caring. She questioned my choice since it is not a thing that Caucasians would usually order, but she did it with a smile. I told her that since I had never tried it, that is why I ordered it. SCORE! Pork "Hamburger"... More

Went for lunch w/ a friend and was very disappointed. Boring choices and not particularly well made. The service was mediocre and not very welcoming.

The eggplant is pretty salty. The fried rice is dry and not mixed well. The worst fried rice we took during our BC trip. The bun with pull pork is salty and far from its Chinese version. Staff and facility is OK, but the food is not recommended.

I asked the service staff for something, " surprise me!, but nothing too spicey, please" And they took their time to make sure they got something yummy for me. Excellent! Thank you so much! :)

This is not the safe and familiar Chinese food that you are used too. This is not fisgard st. We have never heard anything good about the sweet and sour pork or the chow mien. Those dishes are on the menu for the scatty cat Canadians that don't know any better. Try the homemade noodles or dumpling, the spicy food... More

We've eaten here before and enjoyed the food. Was looking for it again. But being ignored for 15 minutes had me lose my appetite. Especially as two tables that came in after us and seated near us were quickly met by the server. I should have to beg someone to take my order. Brutal and won't be back.

Some foodie friends of mine told me about this restaurant so when I happened to be riding by at dinner time ... I thought lets give it a try. Walking in ... there were a couple of other take out customers .. and the place was actually quite busy ... with the vast majority of the people being Chinese. This... More

We had a craving for good Chinese food after coming from Whistler. Looked one up on Yelp and decided to give this a try since it has 4 stars and close to our hotel. The place looks like it used to be a sushi restaurant. Clean and nice servers. We ordered green onion pancakes to start, followed by sweet and... More
