“Best Chinese in the city”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

We go here all the time. I recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for good Chinese food. It might be slightly more money than some other places, but it is worth it.
I recommend, the salt and pepper eggplant, or the green beans and minced pork.
Try it out you won't be disappointed!

“Good Food”
Reviewed June 18, 2012

I had eaten here before and went back as the food is excellent. Service is fairly quick but waitresses have limiited English skills. It is always very busy which really speaks volumes. It is nothing fancy and also somewhat noisy. Prices are reasonable and portions large. I would definitely recommend if you like chinese food.

“Best BBQ”
Reviewed June 17, 2012

This is the most popular Chinese cafe in town and it's full house almost all day. The dishes are mostly Hong Kong style but you will also find western ones and other varieties. Yet the best of all is the BBQ items such as roasted duck, BBQ pork, etc. which are certainly best in Calgary if not the whole Alberta.

“horrible restaurant....!”
Reviewed May 23, 2012 via mobile

I went to this restaurant before it was ok. ..when I went back with my friends recently, it was not ok at all. .....the food was very salty which is not a big deal but the service was really bad. We requested a vegetarian dish and it had pork in it. We confront the waitress and she gave us an attitude stating that we didn't tell her it was for vegetarian. We told her we cannot eat this dish please take it back. She took it and walked away complaining about us being difficult. When it came to the bill time we saw the service charge was on the bill so we thought ok then we don't have to worried about the tips ..they also charged us for the mistaken dish. We told them it was not reasonable to charge a mistake dish. Anyways, they decided to take it off. We paid the bill didn't think we need to put any extra tips cause it was being charged. When we were leaving the restaurant the waitress asked us why we didn't tip them. She said we should which we already did. Confused....but feel embarrassed so we gave them extra tips....I went home told my frieand what had happened she said the waitress is probably the owner since the employee doesn't share the full amount of tips we gave. Hence, the company just want more money and ripping off the employee plus the customers. That was not the way to treat ppl....I can not eat in the restaurant with no ethics.
