Average is by far the best way to describe my experience. The food was average, the serve was average, the price was average. Nothing stood out in either direction. It wasn't good but it wasn't bad. I would eat there again but if I don't I won't be concerned.

$17.95 and simply terrible. Chicken McNuggets in HP sauce...enough said. The service was pleasant enough though.

Have been going here since as long as I can remember and I am 47 now. Price always going up and that's reasonable given the cost of inflation. However, 3 of us had the buffet, 1 small pop each and the bill was $62.10. When I asked the waitress if there was a mistake on the bill she looked at... More

They were ranked one of (if not THE) best in North America… Great deals at lunch and good prices in the evenings as well. Good buffet too!

Loved the seafood wor bar dish and the chili oil sauce they have at this restaurant. The service was very prompt and the staff were very helpful and friendly at answering all my questions. Thank you for a great meal!

On our second night in North Sydney, we didn't want to go back to the Black Spoon but wanted to have a glass or wine or a beer with our dinner. This restaurant had nice cold beer and very good food.

The whole experience we had was most terrible in our life. We were there for Chinese cuisine, not Canadian Chinese food. The server provided us a special Chinese menu. The food on that menu are so pricy ($17 per dish) compared to Halifax prices , but we still looked forward to the good food., then placed a order. The Cantonese... More

My family and I have been going to the canton for years. I can't remember a time when combo plates weren't the treat of the month. They were pretty consistent until the last few years. I went away to university and it was always something to get when I was home on breaks.I had a few mediocre experiences within the... More

If you like the Canadian version of Chinese food, you'll enjoy a meal here. You get large portions, the service is very friendly and they also offer Canadian dishes for those who are not fans of Chinese food.
