Dining in at this restaurant was a little unexpected. I would have pictured a typical Chinese restaurant; however, the décor is actually kind of neat and the menu has a bit of uniqueness to it. The generic Chinese food has always been quite good but the specialty plates are what I'd boast about. Overall, fairly average food.

Being right next door they should waive the delivery charge. I am sure many guests from the Motel eat at this establishment.

We were driving through Hinton and saw this restaurant by chance. They were just about to finish serving for the night but they welcomed us warmly. The food was excellent! Delicious, generous portions and great value for money (esp the combos that combine 4 meals for only $12.99). The staff were very attentive and friendly too. I would strongly recommend... More

Although this is not the best meal I've ever had in a restaurant, it definitely is fine Chinese dining. It's difficult to compare this with gourmet restaurants I've dined on, but this restaurant can certainly hold their own if one is wanting to dine on Chinese food. Besides offering Chinese food, they have other choices to meet most people's taste.... More

Take out ordered over the phone, chicken and veggies, chicken and mushroom. Very friendly young lady took my payment, short wait but worth it. Fresh and tasty, large portions. We will probably not be in Hinton again but if we were this will be first choice.

It was 15 years since we had stayed in hinton. Stayed here on a family trip and decided to try here since we loved the chinese food 15 years ago. The restaurant is really nice as soon as you walk in, clean and up to date. We ordered the dinner for 2 and got a lot of food for 14.99... More

Had eaten here a couple summers ago and was looking forward to this visit. Unfortunately things have chnaged. Service now very slow. Expect to wait 45-60 minutes for food. And when it arrives the quality is lacking big time. Sorry to advise but time to avoid!

Certainly not the Special Red Sauce Prairie standard that I was expecting -- the ginger beef had real ginger in it, and the spring rolls were very nice indeed. It's not the best Chinese food that I've had in Alberta...but it is very nice indeed.

Had the misfortune to order takeout from here. I'm not sure if the staff have the brain span of a goldfish of if it was because it took so long to fill the order that they actually forgot, but the girl taking the orders conveniently forgot that we had paid and tried to get more money! Boss believed the young... More

We ordered an item on the menu that arrived at our table deep fried. It was an item I have ordered at numerous Chinese restaurants in the past and it has NEVER been cooked deep fried (My sister has lived near Chinatown in Toronto and she agreed!!!). I told the waitress that I have food allergies and cannot eat deep... More
