We were pleasantly surprised by this place. The server took our order within minutes of arriving and our food was served shortly thereafter. I can’t remember seeing staff work so quickly as these people. And for the most part the food was delicious.

This was the worst Chinese restaurant I ever ate at. I'm used to east coast US Chinese restaurants, and this place was just not at that level. The dishes were odd combinations of what I guess is Novia Scotia food, which I found generally bad...More
