“One of my favorite lunch spots!”
Reviewed 25 September 2011

I eat here two or three times per month for lunch, and occasionally for dinner, too. The service is good, the owners and staff friendly and the food is delicious. I especially like the spicy seafood noodle soup.

“Disappointing, very average”
Reviewed 11 August 2011

We had great expectations of finding good Asian food in Victoria, but we probably should have opted for Vancouver. This was the highest rated Chinese restaurant in Tripadvisor at the time of our stay, and I must say the food was only average. The "most ordered" entree was a crispy honey beef, which we tried and found to be overcooked and tough. Our noodle entree was also very mediocre.

“Best Chinese food ever!”
Reviewed 15 July 2011

We had the Pad Thai and Thai Chicken Satay and they were wonderful. Someone wrote of the great noodles, and they were exquiste.

“A hidden gem...”
Reviewed 7 July 2011

Went here with the family for a late dinner. Very friendly staff. Food came out quickly and tasted very good. Very reasonable prices and hefty servings - wound up taking a good portion back to the hotel andvwas able to make a second meal out of it! Nothing fancy, just wholesome.

“Great food, place for locals.”
Reviewed 12 June 2011

The food was reasonably priced with large portions. Great chinese food with many options. It seemed like a popular spot for locals and regulars to the restaurant. Great find.
