After living 4 blocks from this place for over 10 years we have had better and worse experiences, seemingly corresponding to ownership changeover. This most recent three times we ordered all of the five members of the family were highly impressed with the taste and quality of the food we enjoyed each time. Scrumptious sums it up: well worth trying... More

The food was below average, and the restaurant was not that clean. We were seated by a window that had mold on the windowsill, which was unappetizing.

I havent been for some time and there are new owners.The place is cleaned up and the décor improved and interesting. Service was so so and it wasn't that busy. Reasonable buffet with the basics and priced accordingly. It served it/s purpose for a quick meal

I ordered Szechuan Beef and received Beef Chop Suey. I phoned back and the lady that answered checked with the kitchen and came back to the phone and said she checked with the "new cook" and it was Szechuan Beef. I told the lady that it certainly was not as I have had it twice before from the same restaurant.... More

If you order take-out, you will be treated, it best, in a cavalier manner. A best, an annoyance. The take-out service is abysmal. You will have to specifically ask for chop sticks, soy sauce, plum sauce, napkins or any other condiments. Try Quality Foods for Chinese if you have a craving for Oriental in Comox Valley. This place is the... More
