The young man greeting the customers should find a new line of work. When he took our order, instead of saying something like "what can I get you"...it was "What do you want". Food had good flavor, but I was wary of the rubbery, slimy chicken in the chow mein. Didn't seem cooked to me. Chicken balls were dry...Ate very... More

This restaurant use to be our thing every Sunday for Dinner, but not anymore. Something happened in the last few years, but it does not taste the same at all. Still OK place to eat but there is always another Chinese place somewhere around the corner.

Small & cute, has recently gone through some much needed renovations. Options include take out buffet ($6.99/lb) eat in buffet at $12.99 person. Buffet on weekends only. One & only complaint is that there is no price difference for a child, toddler or baby. They eat, they pay. This should be fixed. This is a family owned and operated restaurant.... More

Food is cool, selection is very limited, even the water tastes terrible. I would NOT reccomend this restaurant to anyone.

I have never actually sat down and eaten a meal in the restaurant, but I have ordered take out from them a few times. The food has always been very good. Very authentic and good quality. Try the curry chicken....best in Saint John.

First time visit, very big portions for the price (combo #3)... pretty good Chinese food. Not as bad as some of the review says, I would be back. As for the service no comments it was neither bad or nothing to talk about...

Yes, the best Chinese food I have eaten around St John... I was never dissapointed about the food.... Oh there are times when I had to wait a bit for certain items.... but hey!!!... that is a good sign ... right!.... it means it is good and others demand it. Yes, the buffet is available on weekends from Thursday night... More

The selection at the buffet is not very large, and they do not replenish often enough for me. Therefore, the food has been sitting in the warmers for too long. The price is right but the quality lacks somewhat.
