“Authentic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Good authentic Chinese food at reasonable prices. It's not as cheap as the restaurants in Chinatown but the service is far better. Parking can be a problem at weekends, especially for dimsum but far better than trying to find parking in Chinatown. I've been here several times and always take guests there for an authentic Chinese dining experience.

“Best Dim Sum in Ottawa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

We have eaten here a few times recently and always enjoyed the great food at lunch. . The lunch dim sum is pushed around on trolleys and you pick what you want. Great variety and reasonably priced. Vegetable dishes ( Chinese greens) are particularly nicely cooked.

“Great Chinese Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

Close to St Laurent Shopping Center.Dim sum 9+. Great Chicken Curry with Peanuts.To die for.
My wife's favorite is the Salt and pepper Squid.Check out the case beside the front counter.Add your own foreign money to the collection of Chinese jade and porcelain figures.it looks like every Prime Minister/Governor General in the last 20 years has his picture taken with the owner. There is a good reason...because the food is great.Service is a 10+

“Truly Authentic & Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2012 via mobile

This is a real Chinese food restaurant! The dim sum trays rolled around all during lunch time offering all kinds of delicious looking foods. From salads to rice to shrimp and all kinds of desserts, I thought it added to the atmosphere and embellished the experience of eating here.

Thought it was a great service although that's not what I had. I'm vegetarian and I only had eyes and tastebuds for the Vegetarian Moo Shu Pancakes. These thin crêpes come with a blend of Chinese cabbage , radish, mushrooms and onions. Wrapped in the crepes and seasoned with hoisin sauce, these were amazing!

Would recommend this restaurant to all who wish an authentic Chinese food experience.
