When we finally got them, we noticed the prices were extremely high for Chinese food in reference to Canadian prices, but thought that maybe the portions were larger than what we are used to.

Ridiculous is an over statement. For a Friday night you would expect more than one wait staff and one chef . Wait time and service was below standard . Deco needs a renovation too , very dated. No apologies given

for the price paid, the quality of the food was disappointing. Fried rice was dry, curry beef was chewy and lacked curry flavour.

We arrived early so seating and time waiting to be served were never problems. Our food was nice and tasty, the service was good. Given that we were not expecting anything flash we were pleasantly surprised and would definitely eat here again.
