I read the reviews and thought I would try this place. The portions were huge and great for sharing so bring a bunch of people.. When we arrived the place was really empty, about 5pm weekday but it quickly filled up as we were there. No frills but very enjoyable.

Okay, first of all, I've been to many Chinese restaurants and had a lot of Chinese food being Chinese myself. Therefore I'm a very critical Chinese restaurant reviewer. I thought this place was a fantastic value compared to other restaurants in the area outside of Chinatown. There were 10 of us and we ordered the 8 course meal and we... More

Dropped in for some late night food after the Jazz Fest at this restaurant in Chinatown, that's been there forever. Won't win any awards for decor and the place is looking somewhat tired (especially the washrooms), but the food was quite good indeed. The 4 of us had two different combos for 2 and it was all tasty, though the... More

We picked this restaurant in China town as it had the most Chinese diners in it. The food was excellent, we selected a meal for two which gave us great variety. This is an extremely busy restaurant and very good value. Highly recommended for their ethnic food. My only disappointment was the restrooms. They are not handicapped accessible and are... More

We ate here for lunch. Quite good stuff, but very oily. Good value for money. Good basic food very reasonably priced. It's worth going here.

The wonton soup was absolutely delicious and a must have if you go there. We went here because it was close to the hotel, and the reviews where very positive online as one of the best. The food itself, the meat was soft but only because it was fully drenched in oil. You cant eat this plate unless you have... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Bakeries, markets, restaurants, and buffets crowd the brightly graffitied streets of Chinatown, the city's aromatic destination for pan-Asian cuisine. Distinguished at its entry points by towering vermillion paifang gates, the compact neighborhood acts as a focal point for the Chinese community, hectic with educational facilities, cultural centers, acupuncturists, and foreign-language newspapers. Especially vibrant in the warmer months, when the sweet smell of dragon beard candy along the pedestrian walks of Rue de la Gauchetière signal the beginning of the outdoor street fair season, Chinatown is a treasure hunter's dream, with enough knickknack and curiosity shops to tempt even the pickiest shoppers. The convivial vibe picks up after dark, when the area's active nightlife offers evening crowds their choice of drink, dance, and midnight snacks of pho or oysters. Chinatown's mix of new and old, with herbal remedies being sold alongside pop-culture DVDs, gives the area its own animated brand of moxie.
