“Just great Chinese food ...”
Reviewed June 3, 2013 via mobile

This neighborhood eatery has been around for years in one form or another, and easily rivals Calgarys fantastic Chinatown restaurants. Great food, good value in the north-west.

“Hidden Hideaway!”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

This is a great family operated restaurant off the beaten path, securely tucked away in a northwest neighbourhood. Decor slightly dated but enjoy the white linen tablecloths and linen napkins! The place is immaculate: check out the bathrooms! Menu is vast, serving both Cantonese Cuisine and Authentic Peking style dishes. Lots of choice, including Chef's specials and dinners for one person through eight. The food is hot and fresh, service is prompt and wait staff overly friendly. Great place to take a large group: 3 large, 8-10 seat tables, and loads of free parking. Arrangements can be made ahead of time to accommodate special needs of your group and to select menu items so the food is organized and ready for your arrival. Just a great place to drop into.

“Cheap and Rude Service”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

We were at the restaurant on the Valentine Day, February 14, 2013 and the terrible service we got at the restaurant was unbelievable. We asked for extra chili oil and the server told us that you have to first finish the first the oil left in the first one and then she would bring the other one and she never brought any extra chili. Then she brought us the food which was cold and she was so lazy that she was placing the food over from the down step beside the partition wall. She was loud, rude and very disrespectable. She spoiled the reputation of the restaurant and the restaurant lost us forever, and moreover, we will not recommend any of our friends to go there. Very rude server, I know she cannot be fired because it is a family run restaurant.

“Okay, but not exceptional”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Maybe it was an off night. My partner and I visited the Hawkwood Palace on a weeknight evening. The decor was dated, the portions weren't very big, the quality of the food was average, and I felt the prices were a bit high for the amount of food received. The service was friendly and efficient. Normally we walk away from Chinese restaurants with enough leftovers for lunch the next day. Not this time. Perhaps we'll try it again, but I've been to many Chinese restaurants that offer much more bang for your buck. Disappointing, given the favorable reviews on TA.

“Good North American style Chinese Food”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

We eat here often. All of the food is good, my favourites are the spring rolls and the ginger beef. None of it is very exotic, but it is the good family friendly food.
