Food was only okay, not what reviews trumped it up to be... I had a combination; only one option...sad face. Combo was basic, s&s pork, chow mein, chop suey and prawns. At least it was hot, hottest I've experienced, almost burnt by tongue! Was cold where I was sitting (near private dining rooms); only got one beer, waitress was busy... More

This was my second time here and both times were very good. The staff are friendly and the service was super fast. We tried both Chinese and Japanese food and enjoyed it all!

The best item we tried was their squid. It was sautéed and seasoned perfectly. Their stir fried noodles and fried rice are decent, at par with most Chinese restaurants around the world. Their Japanese udon is not terrible, but it is not good either. It was a little over cooked. Their tempura was a bit of a let down. The... More

I can't speak for the Japanese food also offered here but we were all very disappointed by the Chinese food. The ingredients were fresh and it looked very appealing, but there a distinct lack of flavour. All three dishes tasted similar (which they shouldn't have as they were not based on any similarities) one of the dishes was supposed to... More

This place is a time warp. It reminds me of the places we went to many years ago ago for "fancy" Chinese food. It's certainly not authentic but, it was tasty.The portions are huge. Service was friendly and efficient. The room is neat, clean and nicely decorated. If you're looking for old style chow mein, chop suey or sweet and... More

we had a quick dinner there, Katsudon, fried rice, mixed veggies, and udon were very good, but unfortunately, we got a parking ticket, need to pay for the parking and get reimbursed by the restaurant

I am happy to see this restaurant rated so highly in this community. It is one of the original Kamloops restaurants and has maintained its quality for over 30 years. Maybe because it is family owned or the long standing staff or their commitment to fresh food with no MSG, it remains a go to restaurant for my family and... More

The restaurant is nicely decorated and clean. The food was also nicely presented and tasty and fresh. The service for our meal was good and we didn't have to wait long for our meal.

Food was mediocre at best. Had an issue with dinner and when I called to discuss the restaurant manager basically said it was my problem not theirs. Brutal customer service! Certainly will not return or recommend!

I was very impressed with the atmosphere and friendly and attentive staff. The service was great. We ordered Chinese food and it was very good. The meat was not covered in batter, which I prefer as it is more authentic. Portions were large. Would definitely go back!
