“Pretty much yuck!”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

It's hard to judge the food when it arrives so late, is cold and pretty much inedible. The egg drop soup was like jello and very salty. The chicken and sweet corn soup was better.

“Apparently They Don't Need More Customers”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

I have eaten here before and the food is good. BUT the customer service is awful. Waited 1 1/2 hours for delivery tonight before calling. Was told, and I quote "This is not a fast food restaurant and we have many customers so you don't need to be one". Cancelled my order and went to pick up a chicken dinner at Superstore to feed my kid. When I got back the delivery driver was inside my house and she was arguing with my wife. I told her we had cancelled it and I had already went and bought dinner, she sat on the phone for a while and then tried to show me the food was hot. We were now at 2 hours. Then she started trying to bargain with me after I said NO about 20 times. Unreal, will never order again.

“Get a website.”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

Calling for delivery here can be a difficult process. Absent a website where each listed dish has a corresponding description and photograph, it is extremely difficult to determine how some of these dishes are prepared during any telephone conversation with the staff. With this type of food, the variations and choices in how they are prepared are sometimes very important. Similarly, it was difficult to get straight answers about ingredients in the dishes asked-about. Good? - The dumplings and wonton soup were great. Not so good -- General Tao (chicken isn't soft enough and outside batter isn't crispy-fried enough -- plus -- odd additional ingredients and too much spice), Almond Soo Guy (tough and dark salty sauce used instead of a better gravy-like sauce), rice - dried out quickly. Delivery was relatively quick and prompt.

“Still good”
Reviewed May 18, 2012

Ate here frequently while in university. Eating here 15 years later and things haven't changed much. Food is still good - had soup noodles and service was prompt. An added bonus is free parking next to the restaurant - its often a pain to park in Chinatown.

“Good Value Still”
Reviewed March 13, 2012

Have been going for years. Best dish is the Braised Beef Brisket Noodle Soup. Nice tender meat with a good amount of vegetables. Cantonese Chow Mein & the Rice Noodle with beef in soya sauce was tasty with a good amount of meat. Can't go wrong if you keep to the old standards.
