Great food, great service. Nice to find this restaurant walking distance from hotel. The menu had great choices and only about $10.50 for the most expensive combo plate.

The food was VERY tasty, but the restaurant is always uncomfortably cold. My teenage daughter had to keep her long winter coat on while eating. Also, 2 people of our party of 4 were served about 5 minutes before the other 2. In order to be polite, the first 2 waited the 5 minutes and therefore their food was not... More

food was a bit bland. Chicken fried rice was sticky. Beef and broccoli was limp and the egg roll tasted like it was filled with a paste. Service and decor were good. I probably wouldn't go back.

Overall nice decor and atmosphere. The service was OK. It was cold though, very cold. It was not well heated and it cooled the food quickly. The price was high and mediocre beer selection made this a "meh" visit

Huge menu. The dishes we ordered were competently prepared and delicious. However this appears to be a chain, and as such, the food is a bit formulistic.

This restaurant is located in the mall adjacent to Hampton Inn Dartmouth. It looked quite new, probably that's why it is not in your listing as of yet, but I think it is worth to include it.
