I have heard about their egg rolls for years, but had never tried them. Went last friday night. The decor is right out of the 1960's but that only added to the charm. Parking was limited but the service was great and food was excellent.

Went to the Senators game and bought the Egg rolls due to recommendations... they were good!!! Thought we would try again in the actual restaurant, Egg rolls tasted better! But the rest of the food was ok. If you have a craving for North American style Chinese food, definitely swing by.

This place caters, particulalrly on the weekends to a clientle that is loud, rude genaerally obnoxious. The food is at best mediocre.The food is generally tasteless masked by the sauces are far too heavy, much like most of the male clientele. The serving staff shoe no real interest in the clientele and would be more at home slinging hash. The only thing commendable is the egg roll that is bar far the best in the city----but that is tyhe only thing positive. Oh, and the washrooms are filthy

The egg rolls were nice not your typical egg roll, filled with pork I believe and the plum sauce is apparently made in house. The won ton soup was good. We had the chicken soo guy which has a peanut sauce and that was very good. I could have skipped the bbq pork with chinese greens, small portion for the price. I get what some others have written some things are small portions at big price. They should have half portions on some things we ordered four dishes minus the egg rolls and won ton soup and it was way too much food for the four of us. The lemon chicken was pretty authentic and a massive portion they should defiantly have a half potion of that. The lemon chicken is like $22 for a ridiculous portion. The whole idea of Chinese food is to eat family style but the portions here don't allow that they are much too big. SPECIAL CANTONESE CHOW MEIN which a smaller portion should cost half the price not $3 less at $16 about double the cost compared to other similar restaurants. Overall the service was very good and I loved the throwback decor from the 70's. It's pretty good I would just order the egg rolls, won ton soup, than split a dish per couple next time. The lemon chicken is like $22 for a ridiculous portion.
