“Good food..slow service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2013

The food was really good. It was really busy and the poor server was run off her feet. There was only one server and she was doing the best she could. We waited a long time (30 min) for the food but the portions were huge and it was really tasty. We weren't in a rush so we didn't really care. The server was a sweet older lady who was doing the best she could. The management really should have had another person working.

“great place for lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2013

very basic restaurant with a fantastic lunch deal. A bowl of soup and 8 (10?) meal options consisting of an egg roll, rice, meat (ranging from chicken balls to beef and broccoli, etc) for under 9 bucks. This is not haut cuisine but very tasty at a very tasty price and the staff is very friendly .

“Best Chinese Food Value in Halifax”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2013

My wife and I went to this place a month ago based on the fact it was the #2 rated Chinese Food Restaurant in Halifax on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. It is a small family run business in the Fairview area of Halifax. It is very clean with very attentive staff. We went back yesterday and were again not disappointed. The service was quick despite it being very busy - early Sunday afternoon with a big after church crowd. Once again the quality of the food did not disappoint. Crunchy vegetables and deep fried foods that were not greasy or have that Chinese deep fried taste. I have had more favourable Chinese food, but that is not distract from the taste. The food at Fung Wah is real good and considering what you pay for it, it is great.
We both had the lunch platters and I had an extra spring roll and we were able to get out of there for under $35. I really enjoyed the ginger chicken but my wife would not order their spare ribs again. Nevertheless we will be going back. You can't beat the price and value.

“Great lunch specials”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 December 2012

I went with a friend to Fung Wah on his recommendation and was not disappointed. We had their lunch special that were priced under $9. The specials included a small won ton soup. Our plates were 1) egg roll, chicken fried rice, and beef & broccoli; 2) egg roll, chicken fried rice, and mongolian beef. The food was hot, great tasting, and good protions. For the price, this was great value. We will return!
