Sadly the new owner(s) have taken this delicious food institution and turned it for the worse. My wife and I have been eating here for over 5 years, it was our favorite spot for authentic chinese food. We first noticed on new years when we...More

The food was average but the service was horrible even though the waiter himself was actually kind of nice. No napkins, no salt spreader and no soy sauce on the table and no green tee. Very small portions and no nice atmosphere to eat in....More

This was my favorite Chinese restaurant when it first opened. After the ownership changed a few years ago, the service slipped a bit for a while. Lately it has improved a lot and it's nice to go back!

We've had dinner at this place several times the last few months. They have very authentic northern Chinese cuisine and are very delicious, which is hard to find in Ottawa. Nice cozy family run business.
