People come from Montreal, the culinary capital of Canada, for the Chinese Food. Portions are large so order the meal for three, for a group of four. Their Egg rolls are so good, that they are now sold at Senators' hockey games. Don't be mislead by the modest appearance of the place at the corner of Woodroffe and Carling----it is... More

Went for dinner last night, as usual service is lightning fast, egg rolls were awesome, had a meal and when ready to pay the bill, I asked for fortune cookies for kids and was told you have to order them. I said really, and he tells me they don't give them anymore. So sad when you won't give a kid... More

Go for take out eggrolls. 25$ a dozen. Half star lost cuz plum sauce is waaay watered down. We drive 40 mins for these. They are an Ottawa classic! Dining room is 2 star and food is average.

I have been a customer for many years and find the food and service to be excellent. The waiters there are above average in caring for your needs. however sometimes things get out of hand for pick up orders. Here is a small example: Went in to pick up a Number 4 for 2 ($50.00)and 24 egg rolls $50,00). As... More

I stopped in here with a friend on the way to a hockey game because of it's reputation for egg rolls. The egg rolls did not disappoint, but the rest was very average and a bit over priced based on my experience with other Chiness food restaurants. Service was excellent variety good.

Went here with another family for a fun, goofy, retro Chinese dining experience. The food is what I call Chinese-North American. Make no mistake, this is not authentic Cantonese Chinese food but what you'd find in North America circa the 60's and 70's. That means stuff that's served on plates decorated with dragons and phoenixes, by waiters in red jackets,... More

The waiters are spectacular, the food is average . The egg rolls are worth the trip. But there is one thing I don't understand......the place is a dump! It hasn't been updated in years, it smells, and the washrooms are disgusting. With that a background I can only imagine the kitchen. The new owner seem oblivious to it? How about... More

Four dined and everyone agreed that the food and service were amazing. And yes we agree that the egg rolls are outstanding as was everything else we had. On this visit, our dishes included chicken fried rice, chicken chow mein,almond guy ding.

The egg rolls are excellent, we love them. We also love the chicken balls (which are done very different from the usual Chinese food restaurants, imho). So... the service... it's not good. The gentlemen that work here are curt and mostly dismissive. I only get takeout, honestly.

Thank Richard H
