We liked the look of the menu, and decided there was something for everybody. It was clean enough, but the food was revolting. Gristly grey meat, slimy sauces, microwaved frozen vegetables. I couldn't touch mine. My husband sampled mine and his, but said they were...More

We ordered food because we were in a hurry. Unfortunately the food wasn't good at all, and expensive. $50 for 3 dishes and 2 large soups. The nice lady at the desk said there were 8 wantons. One soup had 5 and the other 6....More

Had lunch here - somewhat quirky place in a heritage building, serves Canadian style Chinese food and reasonable Vietnamese food. service was friendly and the other patrons seemed to be locals. Usually a good sign.
