Easily the worst Chinese food I've ever attempted to eat. There is nothing good to say about it. Rancid tasting oil, salty inedible meat....I mean most of is literally in the garbage.

Lack of flavor and very greasy! The younger family members have taken over and the food is gone very poor. No veggies in the chow mein and no soya sauce on the rice. Don't waste your money!

The dishes were adequate, but tasted too much alike and some vegetables resembled frozen vegetable packages. Decor is dated.Service was good.

If you like the kind of Chinese food you can get at a fast food place in a mall, you will like this. It is OK but everything sort of tastes like duck sauce.

Interesting fusion of NFLD and Chinese cuisine. Only one server who had to do everything for the people at several tables, but she worked hard to provide good service.

Food was pretty good. Not amazing. Fried wontons are just the pastry, no stuffing. Wonton soup was ok. Fried rice was ok, no fresh vegetables or egg. Friend had canton chow mean and said it and the noodles were good. Probably the best delivery option in the area. Delivered by taxi.

Among the fast food restaurants on either side, this restaurant would not ordinarily stand out. However, for connoisseurs of chow mein or Chinese history, this is an excellent stop. A sign on the door warns tourists at the chow mein is made with cabbage. You have to have a chow mein. We originally had ordered something else, but when we... More

We ended up in Deer Lake for the night and stopped here as it was better than the usual fast food establishments. Service was quick and the food was very fresh. I would definitely go back when in Deer Lake.
