This is a mom and pop Chinese eatery.

My wife and I mainly eat at this establishment for lunch. There is a good choice of entries and there are weekly specials. (BBQ duck was a recent lunch special) The evening meal is a typical Chinese buffet and the place is packed. The service is very friendly and the prices are very good value. It... read more

I have had takeout from this restaurant and the food was good. I enjoyed it very much. What turned me off was when I was staying at the Tuwanek Hotel, I decided to get takeout and although it was recommended that I order from Golden City, when I called, the person on the other end of the phone didn't want...

No other word but Gross! This is not good food and I am surprised they are still alive. Maybe it is because people in Sechelt don't know what is really good food.

So, we went as a family of 11 which of course is good for business, the food was ready scarily quick but it all was good food, we were told that the kitchen won't stay open for us which is okay when it's near closing but the staff just needed a bit more of a happy pill, everything was great...

I find the food to be good and fresh. It's crazy how fast it's ready when I'm ordering too! My husband isn't a fan of the chow mein though. I think it's pretty good. It's not usually a dish I order. I love the chicken, green pepper, and black bean sauce. I can't eat it anymore, but my fav was... More

The best local Chinese food available, and an excellent little smorgasbord on Sundays. Service is fine.

This place is a pretty typical Chinese restaurant, with all the dishes one would expect. My review is focused on their lunch menu. They offer a choice of two dishes from a list for $7.50. The portions are huge. Sometimes my wife and I share one, meaning we get a nice lunch for $3.75.

This restaurant still after 33 years has the best Chinese dishes ever! I was pleasantly surprised as it had been sold but Abby was still hanging around. Not one of our choices was a disappointment! Service both days was terrific. The owner got us to try a dish he favoured and my husband loved it. Great atmosphere, clean and awesome... More

This place has been here a long long time. It has had good reports and bad over the years. It has earned a rather poor nickname. However I have been there a few times in the last year and the food has been vastly improved. The people running it now are enthusiastic and very helpful. I travel a lot and... More

Good portions but too many of the meat choices are deep fried only. Food a little bland. Clean and new. Good friendly service. Good prices.
