I can't dispute that some of the more negative reviews are accurate as I can see how they could have happened. The service is a bit weird to say the least as the lady who runs the place with an iron fist is a bit difficult to deal with. She has to be the most offputtingly domineering and assertive waitress I've ever encountered. If you're looking for courteous and respectful wait staff have you ever come to the wrong place.
One of the funniest things that's happened in any Chinese restaurant has to be that their lunch buffet is empty and they only fill it if they have enough people come in and ask for it. Considering they're across the street from the excellent and well stocked Jade Buffet you have to wonder why they even bother having a buffet at all.
Having said all that, the food is really good. The portions are absolutely enormous (and I'm a huge eater)! Sure, the Colonel Tso Chicken has a celery to chicken ratio of at least 10:1 but the sauce is delightful! Not a single bit of food that our party of four ordered was anything short of exceptional: the fried rice is beyond reproach (it would be the best ever with more egg and cooking the cabbage more), the shrimp are large and perfectly cooked, and the noodles will make you lick your lips. The sign outside says that it's NY Style and it's extremely true to that high standard especially when you consider the extremely low prices given the heft of the portion sizes. It's worth putting up with the very eccentric quirks of the staff to have great Chinese food in what is largely the gourmet wasteland of the Shuswap... so concentrate on the food and the price and have a great time!
