i have eaten in and had take out from this restaurant. the food tastes like they have NEVER changed their frying oil or cleaned their wok. the fried items are VERY greasy. the boneless ribs were half fat and gristle. the chicken wings were more like kfc wings (but tasted worse)-had a batter on them and no 'chinese' flavor. lo mein was so gross i didn't eat it. mostly noodles and tasted like it was cooked on something dirty. the take out sweet and sour is inedible gloopy stuff that has almost no flavor (the flavor it does have is weird). the sweet and sour in the restaurant is watery and red and tastes not very sour, a little sweet, but has no real flavor. we have just moved here and will be going to canada to try the chinese restaurant there-this one is a waste of money. the only thing i even considered edible was the pork fried rice, and that was mediocre. i have eaten at a lot of chinese restaurants, and this one has the worst food of all of them.

We did not eat here, as we read it was closed and ate somewhere else. But we just drove by and it is open for business.

It is no longer in business. However, the building has been sold and a family restaurant is coming to town. It is a local restauranter who has a great bar and grill in town so it should be just as good.

We stopped here on our way to Bangor. The place is large, and they obviously have a buffet at some point, but not while we were there.

We ordered off the menu, which is fairly extensive. The shrimp spring rolls were 90% cabbage with a little shrimp thrown in for color and I wasn't impressed with them.

When our meal arrived, the portions were huge! I ordered the sesame chicken which came with fried rice and I barely ate 1/3 of it. Honestly, two hungry adults could share 1 plate. It was delicious. My husband ordered the Moo Goo Gai Pan which was tasty, and just as large as my entree.

The restaurant itself could use some updates and a fresh coat of paint though. Restaurant choices in Calais are limited. We would eat here again.
