My family and I have eaten here on and off for forty years. Almost as long as it has been open! The decore hasn't changed much. The booth bench seats have been recovered, but they're the same colour. The food hasn't changed either. Freshly made, western style Chinese food. It was nearly 30 years since my last visit, and I... More

The Worst Chinese food I have ever had. If you're looking for something gross eat here or McDonald's. Wouldn't recommend it. Staff was friendly at least.

Not often you find a Chinese that will make signature sauces from scratch without garlic for me! Food was good value (large rice was a bit small) and plenty of meat, chicken balls in sweet and sour were lovely, crunchy and juicy at the same time. Take away, Saturday night, family of 5.

The service could be better and they always have a different server but the Wonton soup is the best in terrace.

I spent one day in Terrace after travelling the North BC for weeks. I choose this restaurant since it was well advertised by the hotel. Me and my girlfriend were the only customers. We ordered Shrimp Chow Mei and Sweet and Sour Chicken (without breading). The Chow Mei consisted in a plate of plain boiled noodles (slightly stir fried) with... More

The food was not great. Drenched in oil and not well-prepared. The restaurant was terribly outdated and run-down, and it was not very clean. The bathroom was hands down the worst I've ever seen in a family restaurant in Canada.

We had takeout, so no comments on the atmosphere but this was one of the best chinese food experiences I've ever had. Everyone in the group (and a well traveled group, I might add) thought it was top-notch and no one got sick from MSG afterward. A little expensive, but I'd say the food was worth it.

Every single person I've ever come to has said the same thing: That place is horrible, not going back. Their food just sucks. (Ordered a hamburger years ago and it was clearly a frozen patty from a box. Ordered noodles - they were Mr. Noodles or a similar brand.) I definitely won't be going back and if you want Asian...
