Stopped in for lunch while on business in downtown Windsor at a colleague's suggestion. Fast service and very affordable. Not a place to stay and linger over fine food. But good quality and tasty. Had a lunch special of soup and squid in spicy sauce. Under ten dollars! Place was hopping.

I went to this restaurant while on business in Windsor mainly because of the reviews on this website. Although the staff were really friendly and attentive the food was not really that good. I ordered the dinner combo which comes with a variety of options and so I chose the Hot and Sour Soup which I did not like at all, it was very thick and pasty and it looked more like jelly than soup. I also got the crispy beef that everyone recommended and I did not like it either, the chunks were big and chewy (rather than crispy) and it tasted as if they poured a gallon of molasses on top. The fried rice with egg was very bland and was not even close to what you can get at a standard Chinese place at a mall. The one thing that was delicious was the spring roll, it was big, crispy and had a lot of flavour. In conclusion: I've had wayyyyyy better Chinese food!

Family run business for many years, recently changed hands. The cook they've always had is now the owner (not the same family). The food is excellent and consistent. They are very accommodating - and without hesitation - to dietary needs and preferences.

Their menu is large and well varied. I have never found anywhere that comes close to the hot and sour soup they serve here.

This place continues to be an all-time family favourite and meeting place.

Restaurant is open almost all days of the year (I think Christmas day is the only day they are closed). The place does a steady business. The space is not fancy and typical of most Chinese food restaurants. They have 2 large round tables at the back with lazy-Susans to serve up to 8 people which is really handy for family/friend get-togethers.

Love this place and you will too.

Had a dinner with the combo plate, Soup was average, the spring rolls were great tasting but very oily to the point of dripping grease everywhere. The entree was average with rice and veggies and poor quality meat.
