“Quite disappointing”
Reviewed January 9, 2012

We are accustomed to enjoying authentic Mandarin and Szechuan cuisine at restaurants frequented by natives of these regions. Our first hint was probably that the guests were all non-orientals. The food was quite Canadian tasting albeit, served fresh, and hot. The waitress had to be asked three times for the bill, and we ended up taking the teapot up to the kitchen to be refilled four times.
We will say, "we've been there twice, the first and the last being one and the same".We had the feeling that the staff just didn't care. Will return to Harvest Moon, and Ben Thankh where the staff appears to care.

The dim sum is average, and so is the majority of their menu according to typical Cantonese cuisine. Combine that with unnecessarily rude and arrogant waiting staff make for a restaurant that I will never step into willingly ever again, unless threatened at gunpoint.
