For reasons I can't understand, Jeremy & Vinita's blog http://www.cim.mcgill.ca/~jer/visit/rest.html lists this as "the best oriental restaurant in Montreal." Well, that might just be a comment on the one area conspicuously lacking in Montreal's most wonderful food culture, or on the blog.
The restaurant looks dirty, the menus are aged and decrepit, the food is all frozen, but not horrid. The smells coming from the kitchen are not appetizing.
The frozen shrimp were properly cooked, and tender, though without much flavor, though the accompanying vegetables were reasonably crunchy, even if coated in the ubiquitous flour-thickened sauce. Frog's legs were battered (not my favorite) but relatively light and OK. The Vietnamese crab rolls were neither Vietnamese, nor did they appear to contain crab. The mu shu pork was delicious, with light, delicate pancakes. The wine list is reasonable for a restaurant of this level and location. The service was polite, if diffident.
My vote, for what it's worth, is to avoid the oriental restaurant scene in Montreal, stick to Toronto, Vancouver, New York, even Boston, or (of course) Hong Kong, Taiwan, and points East. And my Hong-Kong -born wife strongly agrees.
