Reviewed 28 January 2018

During an unusual and miserable spell of temperatures in single digits and low teens, Ben and Mrs Too twice took to calling out for delivery. The first was to City Lights of China. We have ordered delivery from them twice now and both experiences have been quite satisfactory, if not overwhelming.

This time we ordered beef and broccoli and sweet and sour shrimp. Delivery was prompt, the food was somehow kept hot, the driver was very pleasant, and the price was right.

Mrs Too found her beef very good, and Ben felt the same about his shrimp. We really must stop in there for a meal, as the premises seem inviting from the photos and on their website.

City lights has a very good menu with many choices that they will cook according to your dietary restrictions or just tastes. The appetizers are tasty, specially the dumplings. They have a variety of entrees with meat, pork, chicken, seafood and vegetarian choices that can be steamed, sauteed or cooked traditionally with your choice of sauce. Their portion sizes and their prices are good. The restaurant is clean, but very basic. Their delivery service is very good and the food arrives hot and promptly. The whole crispy fish special is absolutely delicious and great if you want to share with your friends and family as a whole table meal!

My husband and I went for dinner and he had the best vegetarian dumplings and orange chicken. I had their shrimp in spicy tomato sauce and it was delicious, savory and well prepared!
Also it was a very busy night and the waiter was very impressive with managing all the tables, and given how busy it was the wait for our food was very reasonable. We will be going back many times!
The only down side is because it is a small location, when it is busy, it gets loud and hearing the people at your table can be a little difficult.

There was some interesting variations available on some of the food. The food was well seasoned and of good quality.

We came for late lunch, when the neighbor restaurant was closed.
Their spinach and deep fried fish are delicious.
Love to be back!
