Among the fast food restaurants on either side, this restaurant would not ordinarily stand out. However, for connoisseurs of chow mein or Chinese history, this is an excellent stop. A sign on the door warns tourists at the chow mein is made with cabbage. You have to have a chow mein. We originally had ordered something else, but when we... More

We ended up in Deer Lake for the night and stopped here as it was better than the usual fast food establishments. Service was quick and the food was very fresh. I would definitely go back when in Deer Lake.

A traditional Canadian Chinese restaurant run by an Asian family. The server had a scant hold on the English language. Large and roomy.

Best Chineese food on the west coast. We have eaten here about 10 times now and its always consistent. Excellent flavor and generous serving size for a good price.

We tried moo shu chicken and egg foo yung. The moo shu had less than an ounce of chicken but a bowl full of peas and green beans in an almost decent sauce. The dish did not come with rice. That was a first. Egg foo young mediocre. Service seemed short handed and disjointed

Very tasty chicken lo mein and fried rice. Won ton soup good too with the tasty broth. Cantonese food. Good for Deer Lake. So Gai (fried chicken tenders) with gravy did not enjoy because soggy with gravy. Recommend if you have an urge for Chinese food.

If you've been traveling Newfoundland for a while and starting to wonder if the vegetable is an endangered species, then this is an oasis in a deep fried desert! Good standard Canadian Chinese food. All the expected meat and veg dishes done well. Friendly service.
