THE WORST CHINESE FOOD I've ever eaten. I'm really surprised by the good reviews because for me the food had no flavor, didn't look good and was not appetizing. The dish they made didn't look like the picture. Even the rice was weird.
I do NOT recommend this restaurant. You can find better chinese food somewhere else.

I visited today, May 31, 2017. This is a fairly new place that looks relatively hip with brick walls, multiple flat-screens playing cat videos and very attractive and hardworking staff. That's the positive. They offer lunch specials from 11:30am to 6:00 and even have Chinese menus for those who can read them. I was in a hurry so I decided to get take-out and be on my way. The special lunch menu includes a main course (protein and rice) and a choice of drink or soup for $7.99 plus taxes which comes in under $9.50 CDN. I decided to try their lemon chicken. My experience is that lemon chicken is far from a spicy dish but I was not expecting the tasteless soggy mystery chicken nugget meat covered in very scary looking sauce. I realize that styrofoam causes condensation in hot food and takes away the crispness of deep frying, but in the 3 minutes it took me to open the container, it could not have gone from crispy deep-fried to tasting like it had been steamed in its batter instead. It also had ABSOLUTELY no seasoning whatsoever. The meat itself was horrible commercial chicken minced and stuck together to look like chunks and the awful day-glo radiation orange colored sauce was slightly bitter but generally tasteless as well. The rice was completely overcooked: it wasn't sticking as it was supposed to, it was splain mush. Basically the only thing that could be identified as having any taste was the raw onion used as garnish. Perhaps other things on the menu taste better and this was an off day for them, but unfortunately, I won't venture in again to find out. After a few mouthfuls I threw the container out, so I don't even have a picture to show you. The overused food coloring in the sauce would have made for a very colorful shot. My can of Diet Coke was nice and cold and unfortunately the best thing in this disastrous meal.
