Great pre show meal

We called with a group just over an hour before curtain up at a show and chose the Fast Dinner menu for $25 a head. Fast it was for two courses and tasty as well. We were in and out in just under an hour.

Busy Chinese restaurant just off Queen St. Went here for a birthday lunch...better atmosphere than one of the nearby food courts, however the food was no better and more expensive. Not much of a wine list. Service a little slow, however it was busy. Worth a visit, but you can do better elsewhere if you have time to look.

Were in a hurry to get to "Wicked" show and staff were very helpful - order taken and first course arrived within minutes. Food yummy - had the pre-show menu which had plenty of choice for mains. Good value and pleasant dining experience, even to real cloth serviettes, and friendly staff. Would dine there again

Really good food at a reasonable price. Service was a bit slow, especially as it a a week night also. Could not fault the food however. Walking distance from the Crowne Plaza Hotel.

Thought that title would get your attention. Have gone to this restaurant numerous times before over the last several years. Food has always been good and service compared to most other Chinese restaurants is a lot better. So we brought our out of town guests and everything was going great. Until i took a bite on my favorite taro duck... More

I tried the chicken and vegetable dish and it was very fresh and yummy. The service was fast and price very reasonable. The serving was huge. It is a generous helping of the chicken dish served over steamed rice and very tasty.

After reading all the good reviews here, my Chinese friend expected at least a better than average food. The food turned out to be so disappointing. While it is possible that we ordered the wrong items, but then why does the restaurant sell " wrong dishes " at all ?
