I've been getting food from Wonderful for decades. I usually get it to go, but it's nice to eat there as well. Their Spicy Shrimp and Chow Fun dishes are outstanding. This is a good, solid, family-run business with seriously delicious food that never disappoints.

We hadn't been here in years, so with a hankering for Chinese food we thought we'd give it a try. The chicken chow mein arrived quickly, but was really salty. We ordered three other dishes also too salty for our taste. Service was quick and the restaurant was clean.

Wonderful Chinese food has been at Sylvan corners as long as I can remember. I really enjoy their food. It's fresh, flavorful, and reasonably priced. My wife will only eat their Cashew Shrimp - it's her favorite and they make it the best.

We went there last night and had a delicious meal. Our daughter just moved into that area and we decided to try something close by, glad we did. The cheese wontons, orange chicken, honey walnut prawns were some of the best I've ever had! The service was quick and friendly. Took the take out menu as we were leaving too.... More

Good food but service is just ok. It almost always feels as if they are rushing you out and not very personable.

It has been a few years since my husband and I had visited, but the food and service was excellent. Staff were attentive without being annoying. And a few of the staff remembered us.

I visited this restaurant for the first time in February. I went during my Lunch hour. The staff was friendly. The food was very good and the lunch menu prices were very reasonable. Lunch portions were generous. I look forward to visiting again in the near future to try something different off the menu (I had the sweet and sour... More

It's OK but not as good as it use to be. The wontons in the soup are still very tasty but the broth was a bit on the tasteless side. I had the fried rice (not much to that) and the kung pow chicken which was marked on the menu with one pepper (meaning spicy) but it was very bland... More
