I always make it a point to stop off here for lunch or dinner especially if I have a guest with me who has never been! This is exceptionally fresh and authentic Chinese food and as I tell all my friends who have joined me here.. this place will ruin your neighborhood #1 Chinese food restaurant for at least 6...

Got a table for a group, server was rude and took a while to come back to take our order! Booster seats are not suitable for smaller children. Toilets were disgusting with wee and poo on the floor and next door to where the food was so we decided to leave and not eat the manager started shouting at us... More

We come here together, alone, with family, with friends. It is good real Chinese food, large servings, good prices. It has a real buzz, and we love it. It isn't "smart", but that is part of its rationale. You can eat quickly or linger. It has veracity; long may it continue.

I have never eaten such terrible char siew wan tan noodle in my life. A very unpleasant trip to this so called "restaurant". I wonder if there's a way to rate -1 star. There's no other word to describe this restaurant but simply the word "terrible". One more thing: If you expect to have an official receipt, it will never... More

I was looking forward to great Chinese food while in china town. Reviews here for this place were good, and we did see a lot of locals eating here. The place is a hole in the wall, nothing impressive at all but I wasn't going to let that deter me from possibly getting something seriously yummy. Unfortunately it was a... More

Huge portions, good hot food. No ambiance, but what do you expect in China Town. Friendly staff, good service.

This is the place to eat roasted duck. Service is ok, not great. It is by far my favourite restaurant for a chinese lunch.

I've been eating here for over 30 years. I always order the roast pork (cha siu). They are known for their roast pork (which is a must order) along with their beef chow fun and "donut". You can't beat the prices either. Beware, you don't go here for service.
