Vacationing in Parksville, decided to shop in Nanaimo, picked this place for takeout due to fairly good reviews. Food was dry, poorly seasoned, discoloured batter on prawns (odd gray colour inside). Broccoli was so overcooked and limp. Complete waste of money. Only good part was very pleasant gal that took take out order.

The food is great with a wide variety of options to choose from. The service is pleasant and prompt. The location along the waterfront is convenient.

We were looking for a quick inexpensive meal so decided to try this place. The service was very friendly but the place was practically empty. When the food was served there was lots of it but there was a lot of battered greasy food. Good if you are looking for a chinese food fix but not the healthiest meal.

If you love Chinese food, Cantonese food, in particular, and you live in, or visiting, mid Vancouver Island, try out this little restaurant on Stewart Avenue on the water front. You will not be disappointed. Owner Ben is an excellent cook. This is the best Chinese food you can get in Nanaimo, in my opinion. Delicious food, reasonable price, yet... More

Walked here from our motel on owner's recommendation. Excellent food, large portions satisfied my 15 yo and 20 yo sons. Excellent spring rolls, not greasy. Ordered the schezwan chicken and boy was it hot !,! Not the usual dumbed down version. Lots of fresh veggies. Very authentic food, Chinese noodles a great hit. No msg or salty aftertaste hours later.... More

The food and service were excellent! My only complaint would be location. Small parking lot and the air conditioning was set way too cold for my taste. We would definitely recommend this restaurant, just car pool and bring a sweater - or maybe a parka.
