I've dined in this restaurant several times and it used to be good years back, but with time all good things come to an end. The last few times were a big disappointment from the 80s style service to the inconsistent food. We used to go in and automatically order the Mediterranean Wontons, they were always a treat, something you... More

Somewhat inconsistent product here, and similar in terms of service as well. Burger or veal worth a try.

This licensed establishment features unique and original fare as well as more traditional items. If you have the 'guts' and wallet for it, their monster sized burgers (sized to feed 4 or more) are the signature treat. A great eclectic atmosphere, well kept and with extremely positive staff make for a memorable dining experience. I keep coming back.

Dined here many times. Food is good. Wonton soup is delish! Interior is a tad dated and perhaps in need of renovations... but the eclectic decor kinda grows on you!

We have eaten here many times and always enjoyed both the food and the atmosphere. Everything we have had has been very good. My wife loves the Chicken Rice bow. The ribs are very good. One surprisingly good item is the Wonton Soup which comes in several varieties in a SouperBowl. Their burgers are voted best in Nanaimo.. If you... More

I made a reservation as we were with my elderly parents and we arrived to be told that the girl who took it forgot to write it down. She found us a table once she realized we were not happy and she did feel bad. The food was great but then half way though the meal I started getting dripped... More
