Still my Ottawa mainstay. Take out or eat in. They made a small mistake but then made it right. I’ll be back next trip for the eggplant, garlic broccoli and salt/pepper tofu.

I ordered Thai veg. eggplant. It was like a greasy Chinese dish, not good or healthy. The experience was not make better by the staff arguing with the table next to us, when they complained. I like Phuket Royal next door.

Vegetable spring rolls and dumplings very good. Eggplant w/ garlic sauce excellent. Indonesian vermicelli, tofu w black bean sauce, salt and pepper tofu, all wonderful and large portions. Modest surroundings with easy street parking. Went two consecutive days.

We had 8 adults and 4 kids for dinner over the recent holiday weekend at this small restaurant. It’s very plain but good food value, everything ordered was hobbled up by our hungry crowd,

The vegetable egg rolls are amazing. Kids had General Tao, spicy or unspicy. Soups were good too. Unassuming place, very helpful service.
