I have gone to this restaurant many times, mostly for their budget-conscious $4.95 lunch special. I have tried many different lunch specials but the best one is General Tso chicken. As a warning, it doesn't come with any vegetables. It's basically a mountain of delicious spicy tangy meat on rice. I have never eaten the entire thing, and I always have enough left over for dinner. I also recommend the sweet and sour pork which does come with vegetables. My friend likes the eggplant lunch special.

Dinner here is more expensive but they have a lot of options to choose from, including entire ducks. You can still order individual meals (lunch specials with a soup and egg roll for around $6 or $7) or you can order bigger containers of food. I rarely have dinner here.

The service is always fast. The place isn't particularly trendy but it's a great place to go on a quick lunch break for some delicious cheap food.

this place has good lunch specials and dinner specials at reasonable prices..but beware the owner (lady) is VERY inattentive to your requests and you have to ask for water 3 times..you get coke when you order pepsi, and watch your bill fpr extra charges..the bill is in large chinese script and smaller english..last 3 trips I noticed a .50 charge for nothing..so pay attention to your bill.

We came across this restaurant purely as a last resort. Originally we had travelled to Kingston from the cottage in search of a Chinese Buffet and to do a little shopping, but to our dismay all the ones we used to go to were gone. So, we headed down Princess Street to see what we could find. Upon entering the place it looks like it is in need of some rejuvination. Creaky uneven floors and outdated decor gave some trepidation. However, the menu was extensive and once the food came all conversation stopped as we hungrily chowed down on the excellent Vegetable Egg Foo Young and Shrimp with Lobster Sauce on Rice. The lobster sauce had a little kick and the individual lunch portions were huge!! Definitely worth another trip to Kingston, I'd say.
