Good service, extremely prompt, but it helped that we went there early afternoon. The sushi was bland kind of your gas station quality sushi. The Chinese however was extremely fresh, and things that were suppose to be crisp were crisp, not soggy, how Chinese food tends to be sometimes.

On a Saturday afternoon (after the lunch rush) my daughter and I ordered two dishes - one meat and one rice. The meat dish came first, and was tasty but the rice did not come until twenty minutes later. By that time the meat dish was cold. The service was slow and it was difficult to even spot the server.

Getting into Castlegar after 9:30 it was one of the only places open. Ordered the chinese dinner for 2. It was hot and pretty good. Waitress was friendly and provided great service always coming by to fill water and coffee and asking if we need anything.

This place is ok but nothing spectacular. My husband was half done eating before my food came out and despite being kind of slow when we went the wait staff wasn't quick to offer refills on our drinks or to see if we needed anything. I don't think we will be back again.

Slow service has always been a constant. Then there is the sorry we know you just sat at the door and looked at our specials just to be told they are over. Like Hello...customer service, and then the entire staff is eating or gourging themselves at a regular table for all to see. These people need a lesson in service... More

After a bad experience a year ago, decided to try Chopsticks again. Result- Service terribly slow, no cutlery with the meal and AGAIN the appetizer shows up at the table at the same time as the bill. Really,,,I think they concentrate on the TAKE-OUT orders and ignore the tables. The family seated beside us had the same service. The father... More

Chopsticks food is plain and overpriced. Nothing special here just average food. The waitress's work hard though and service is always good

After being seated at an awful table with slightly better ones available (there aren't any 'good' tables with the way everything is crammed in there), and waiting 5+ minutes without even an acknowledgement that someone would be with us shortly, we'd had enough and walked out. Tired of overpriced, mediocre food in a loud restaurant. We went and tried Warren's... More

This restaurant is always a mystery to me as to why it seems to remain busy? I have given it an honest try for a local craving good hot Chinese food, and sushi. This last time we tried a tuna roll to start, it had a long black hair through out! All our 3 Chinese dishes had a tiny amount... More
