Stopped for dinner and was pleasantly surprised.Menu includes both Western and Chinese cuisine. Their menu choices were good and had a nice variety to pick from. We ordered Chinese, the food was very tasty, fresh all made in house and serving size was good, was not able to finish and so took some home. There are 2 cooks there, one... More

The service was prompt, polite and professional. The food was just okay. The meat items for myself and my colleague were over done and dry. The vegetable dishes were good. The cook must like cooking meat well done (even the ginger chicken).

I'd travelled past this place hundreds of times before, and there was always people going in and out of here. I finally stopped in for supper with my Mom, and since we were both pretty hungry, we figured it would be a great place. I ordered a coffee and Chicken Quesadillas.

Their Chinese food is probably better than the North American cuisine. Not the type of restaurant for ambience but a good place to stop if you are travelling through and need something to eat.

New Owners have taken over this restaurant and the food is pretty good. The Chinese Food was pretty good but too much deep frying for my taste. They have extensive options for Western food and the other two at our table rated it good. The chicken wrap and chicken wings were good and huge portions. The pork chops were good... More

The restaurant has a Canadian and Chinese Menu. We ordered the ginger beef. It was deep fried and covered in a sugary, syrup style ginger flavored sauce. No real ginger to be found. The stir fried veggies were decent. The spring roll was greasy. No thanks.

Only had their Chinese food , food, service, prices not bad so cannot comment on the "American" food. However, good enough will come back the next time through.
