“blah”
Reviewed 14 April 2014 via mobile

Veggie fried rice, honey garlic spare ribs, beef lo mein, lemon chicken and sweet and sour wontons.
$52. SO EXPENSIVE. Everything was cold. the lemon sauce was the viscosity of water. Everything was very tasteless and bland. Kind of tasted like it had been sitting in a hot box for some time.
The wontons were quite good.
Small portions, no fortune cookies.
Wouldnt recommend- mistake made. never ever again.

“Absolute WORST!”
Reviewed 24 February 2014

This place is without a doubt the worst Chinese restaurant I have ever visited. The hostess was rude, the atmosphere was bland... and the food.. The food was absolutely horrible. The taste was poor at BEST, and the appearance.... I can't even.

The beef and broccoli my friend had was extremely dry, and the rice tasted odd. I stomached about two fork-fulls of supposed chicken chow mein, and absolutely refused to touch the spareribs. While waiting on my order I saw a hamburger being served to a table. It looked very dry and the patty looked gray, but that may just be due to the poor lighting.

The only recommendation I'd give this restaurant is that everyone should run far away from it. I wouldn't give this food to a sewer rat to eat. This one star rating is much too generous.

“Good maritime Chinese food”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

Egg rolls are awesome. The service is impeccable. The dinning room is clean and well kept. Nothing fancy but a great meal at a good price with excellent portions.

“Amazing Chinese Food”
Reviewed 23 September 2012

While this restaurant seems dark and dingy, the food more than makes up for the atmosphere. Everything is made fresh on the premises including the plum sauce. The egg rolls are the best in Charlottetown and, quite possibly, all of PEI.
