Not sure what will be other choices in Ottawa, dim sum is using a cart to move over and usually food are cold when served. Price is not cheap but may be that is average in Ottawa. Will not come again.

The combination plates have various foods, with either rice or chow mien and egg rolls. The service is very fast and the price is reasonable.

This is an excellent place for a Chinese meal, because it is comfortable, convenient, friendly, and affordable. The portions are generous, including the amount of meat. The lunch menu is quite long, with a variety of choices, all at $11.95, for a large heaping plate of good food.

We had lunch here and had the traditional Chinese Dim Sum!! Entrees were excellent -- great way to taste a number of Chinese Favorites!! Shrimp wrapped delicacies were the best! Also enjoyed egg plant stuffed entree!! Tofu and sticky rice also yummy!! Dishes come out hot and tasty!!

Clean and reasonably priced. We eat here fairly often. My kids like all the north american stand-bys: egg rolls, spring rolls, cantonese chow mein etc.

My family of 5 had lunch here. The waitress was friendly and they had a decent menu selection. Seating was decent and the decor was about average, nothing really special. The food came without waiting to long. It was about average tasting though. Lots of it, but I've had a lot better in similar type Chinese restaurants. If you are... More

Some contributers to this site seem to be in a snit simply because this isn't a Chinatown restaurant and has no pretension to being so. The menu is genuinely interesting, and we have twice had decent meals here in a no-frills basement situation. Service is pleasant and attentive. True, you'll find a page of coffee-shop-style Chinese food, including a huge... More

Chinese pot stickers billed as pork and ginger filled arrived over-cooked and stuffed with sausage of unknown origin. The lemon chicken arrived dry with sauce accompanying, as it might in a take away order, except this wasn't. The chicken tastes of oil that needed replacing in the deep fryer. On a positive note they replenished the lemon sauce, without which... More

Although we love Oriental food, this restaurant was a huge disappointment. I had to send my food back as the noodles weren't cooked. We were a party of three (but I noticed this happened with other tables as well) and they brought out each meal as it was ready. Normally all people sitting at one table get served at the... More
