The food is good. Nothing extraordinary. But great value. Good sized portions too. It is a very big restaurant. Lots of space if you have a big party with you. However I don't know if they are ever full because they few times I have been there it is relatively empty. The service is also not that great.

Here is a restaurant owned and operated by Chinese. You have authentic Chinese cuisine. You must try the Dim Sum. Service is very good. Food quality and quantity is excellent. Although, depending on when you go the Dim Sum menu is limited. Best time to go is Sundays for brunch. Location is not all that but when you get inside... More

This is not the usual Chinese Restaurant. Great for meetings, a family get together or reunions. Prices are a bit high though, but certainly value for the money

Located on the outskirts of San-Fernando, an easy get away to enjoy a tasty authentic Chinese meal. The value is great and the service is spot on. Had to wait on average 10 mins for our meals after ordering. Staff are courteous and though many are Chinese immigrants who speak little English they make it up with effort. Would definitely... More

Located on the outskirts of San Fernando in what was formerly the South Lands Mall Complex, the restaurant provides a great eating spot for those who don't want to go into the city. It is spacious, clean and the food is surprisingly very tasty. The staff comprises almost totally of Chinese immigrants who speak little English but are always very... More
