Excellent food & service plus parking in downtown St. John's. Fresh food & large portions. It's even better next day. It's kind of a forgotten gem in St. John's.

Never disappointing the staff are great and so is the food. Always a busy spot but usually no problem getting a table. Take out option is very popular as well.

Bland food and very little of it. I was very disappointed and will not be returning. Best part of my meal was the Mountain Dew!

Small, flavourless deep fried appetizers. Don't think the chicken balls were homemade. If they were, they tasted leftover. Frozen mixed veggies in the rice...unreal! Egg roll had very little filling or flavour. Very bland meal overall. Can't believe all the great reviews for this place....More

This is by far the best Chinese food in the city. Great selection and super fast service. It is so fast that if you want to enjoy your appetizer, you better order that first while you are deciding on your meal.

We have eaten here many times and the food and service is mostly great but don't order late at night. The food after 9 take-out is not always hot and good. The food is really good and prices and good.
