We called in today and had a meal for 2 including wine . Fantastic value compared to the other places we have had dinner and lunch. The menu isn't extensive, but interestingly I overheard the waiters discussing with other tables what they would like and how they would like it ie spicy, sweet and sour, so perhaps you can ask and they will prepare it for you.
The service was attentive without being over-bearing, and very friendly. The quality of the food was also very good.

A great restaurant with good, solid service and lovely, authentic food. I actually thought the prices were reasonable and although our table was in a corner (and I thought we would be forgotten) the staff were attentive and the food arrived quickly but without feeling rushed. We bought our own bottle of wine and corage was again reasonable. I thoroughly enjoyed the food and the decor was also pleasing. Even though the restaurant was full, the addition od candles on small tables created a lovely atmosphere.

My daughter and I were looking a somewhere to eat that was quiet and a little more up market. Having tried several different restaurants in Chinatown ( and not finding any faults - just wanted to try something new) we decided to try Chine on Paramount. From the friendly welcome to the faultless wait staff, this restaurant met all of our expectations. The food was delicious, hot and promptly served. The prices were a little higher and the portions a little smaller than the usual fare but it was what you would expect to find in any classier style restaurant. I would definitely go back but only for a special occasion. Otherwise if you are just looking for simple Chinese food there are many excellent places in Chinatown.

friendly 5 star service from staff, tasty food but is expensive. we did enjoy it though and we were on holiday so the cost wasn't a big deal. If you want to sit back and relax this is not the place to do it, within 30 minutes we had ordered, had our meal, including entrees & a drink & the account was on our table.
