We had a wonderful experience at this restaurant. Food was excellent (had the coconut green curry), the service was impeccable, and the ambience was spot on! Not to mention enjoying a piece of history as it is family owned for 100 years! Loved it and will definitely be going back!

We were a table of 5 and asked our server Helen to decide our menu for us. She provided duck and spring rolls for appetizers followed by calamari, maple chicken, ginger beef and two others. It was all... More

I attended their feast, and it was absolutely amazing. If you have the chance to attend one of their feasts, DO IT! It is amazing! They serve the entire restaurant at one time, it is a set menu, and it is very different. If you are the type of person that likes egg rolls, chicken balls, and fried rice, its... More

According to the incredibly friendly owner, who shared stories and laughs with us over our stay, the restaurant has been in North Bay for 100 years, all the time in the same family. It's always remarkable to dine somewhere with such an extensive history. I have no doubt that there are many stories waiting to be told at the Chicago... More
