Good food at modest cost

My wife and I stopped in around 2pm on a Wed. the noon rush was over by then and the buffet was not available. We ordered 2 combo meals, sweet and sour chicken, garlic spare ribs, egg roll and rice.

I have never actually sat down and eaten a meal in the restaurant, but I have ordered take out from them a few times. The food has always been very good. Very authentic and good quality. Try the curry chicken....best in Saint John.

First time visit, very big portions for the price (combo #3)... pretty good Chinese food. Not as bad as some of the review says, I would be back. As for the service no comments it was neither bad or nothing to talk about...

The selection at the buffet is not very large, and they do not replenish often enough for me. Therefore, the food has been sitting in the warmers for too long. The price is right but the quality lacks somewhat.

We came here for the buffet once and will never be back. We each had one small plate and then went to the salad bar. It was crawling with bugs! It was so gross we left immediately. The staff is rude and gave us nasty looks when I told my husband we had to leave because of all the bugs.... More

OMG SO GROSS WE DIDN'T EVEN EAT OUR FOOD. The worker was very damanding on why we would not take left overs and why we didn't eat all of our food. She told us that we were wasting the food. There is also a BIG sign on the wall about no wasting food. I all most said it was because... More

Locally run, great Chinese food at great prices. This place can get pretty busy. Once they have hit their quota the phone is out of commission...too busy cooking!
