We are not experts in Chinese food, but we enjoy it and have been to Chinese restaurants in several different countries. The restaurant looked a bit old fashioned in terms of decor, and could have done with new paint on the walls and new carpet. We were seated in the area at the front by the large window (the view...

I would ask anyone coming here not to expect the luxury one would get in a fancy restaurant. If you can see past the dated decor, this place is for you. Hands down the best Chinese food I have had since moving to Alberta. Yes the portions are smaller, but I would rather pay more for quality than eat a... More

Had dinner here the night of the Santa Claus parade. Very quiet and on the second floor. Ordered chicken, cashew, and veggies, salad rolls, wonton soup, and the house fried rice. For a small restaurant, the service was good, the staff pleasant, and the food was good. You also got a generous portion. The price was reasonable as well. We... More

Not good, dirty/gross, and a little pricey. In addition, they brought out the wrong order and argued with us about what we ordered...then brought us the really tough ginger beef we ordered....keep looking

While the food was average at best the decor in this restaurant was well below average. The carpet is worn & dirty, the chairs are stained and the paint on the walls is chipped off in many areas. If you can't keep the customer area clean & tidy I fear what the kitchen might look like. For the price of... More

Discovered this place accidentally trying to find anything affordable in the area. Really enjoyed our dinner there. Service was really friendly, they gave us special plates and cutlery for our 3 year old which she really liked. Absolutely no complaints. The view in the little room was amazing. Will definitely be back

We visited this restaurant for dinner. It is on an upper floor and was quite busy. After checking that we had not booked, we were shown to a table. The menu has a wide range of Asian choices, but we felt that prices particularly for food were quite expensive, hence our "Poor" rating for "Value". We selected our choices from... More

We have just moved to Banff and this was our first Chinese takeaway. Unfortunately our order was incorrect when it came. We ordered Special fried rice specifically asked for no peas but there were peas in the rice when it arrived. We were also disappointed in the size of the portions. Normally we would get twice the amount of food... More

Somehow we ate here and left not satisfied. Pricing and decor was fair, but the food was just ok. It is somewhat hidden on the second floor of a shopping center. Service was prompt.
