Cozy, and comfortable. The food is wonderful and the staff polite and proactive. Ordered vegetarian fried rice not realising that egg was part of it. The staff was quick it out and make the necessary modification.

When I asked about MSG I was told the chicken in marinated in MSG. I could taste it in the food. If you don't mind MSG the food was okay. It's not the best Chinese food I have had in Thunder Bay.

this was our first time here. We enjoy Asian food. We just had the Cantonese chow mien to share between us with a beer and a cooler. They were very busy with a table of about 19 people. Two servers who did their best to serve us quickly, they were friendly. food was great.

This is the only place in Thunder Bay we go to for Chinese food. A must is their Vietnamese rolls and their bbq pork won ton soup. These two alone make a great meal. They have a special bbq pork won ton soup which comes with lots of veggies. Their dishes all have fresh cut vegetables. My husband's favourite is... More

First time visiting this restaurant. The menu had a lot of different choices for their combination plates. The food was excellent and the plates were heaping, almost too much to eat. They had take out boxes if you didn't eat everything . The staff were pleasant and efficient. A good place to eat Chinese food in Thunder Bay

This place has food to die for. The staff are all dressed appropriately for a Chinese Food Restaurant. They know their menu inside out and can assist with anything you feel like eating. Its nice inside and calming. Prices are bad either. Kids love the 'costume' look of the waitresses. The owner goes around talking to people too, very friendly... More
