The restaurant closes at 11:00PM but I was managed to call in around 10:30PM and got the takeout. The price is average but the amount of food is considered as large portion compare with other Chinese food outlet. Overall, ideal place for late night meal.

Excellent food & service plus parking in downtown St. John's. Fresh food & large portions. It's even better next day. It's kind of a forgotten gem in St. John's.
