Consistantly rude and disinteested service.

The hostess is always rude and disinterested...she's clearly ONLY focused on grabbing your cash. The servers are equally bored and dispassionate. Sure the food is decent...although overpriced. Portions could be larger too. Plenty of profit in noodles, rice, strips of chicken thigh meat and... read more

I believe paying tip is a prerogative of the customer. However, be ready to be reprimanded for not paying, especially when some other customer exchanges glances with the manager for their own reason. Food was good, attitude sucked.

The food is just so consistently good. They always get the order right (Which doesn't happen everywhere). My kids are fussy eaters but like the food here. This is a good neighborhood choice.

Delicious assortments, well prepared, fresh, fast service. Sometimes service is too fast. The mains were brought before the soup was finished. Best to advise server to wait till soup or rolls are finished before bring other dishes.

We go here every handful of weeks. Food is very good, and service is so fast that we sometimes initially only order soup and apps, eat them, then order main dishes so we have more time between courses. Crowd is generally a little older so if you go for dinner around 7:30 or 8:00 it is much quieter. Pretty packed... More

My son, who apparently frequents the Szechuan Gourmet Restaurant, took me to dinner describing how great the food here is. He knew the menu and politely ordered for me. We drank hot tea as he animatedly told me about school. (My concern is alwsys: did you eat lunch??) Not having to wait very long, we received our first dish of... More

Great food, service was fine, overall athmosphere felt a little greedy. Tasty & Fast Service. Everything is really tasty and at a good price you can get a lot of food, enough to even take home and have another dinner. The staff always seem stressed and serious, likely because there's a lineup of packed people hovering like sardines and looking... More

We celebrated a friend's birthday here tonight. It was my first visit - our friends are regular patrons. We started with two bowls of crispy wonton soup. The wontons were nice and crispy and the broth was flavoured perfectly. Once the soup bowls were cleared, a number of dishes came out in rapid succession. Two were some of my favourite... More

Portions could be larger too. Plenty of profit in noodles, rice, strips of chicken thigh meat and frozen shrimp. Just ask the woman at the main entrance!

I went there for the first time today to order some take-out. I love Chinese food and have it often from many other places in the area, but since I had never been here and it's close to home, I thought I'd give it a try. They got my order wrong and when I got home and called them to... More
