Reviewed yesterday NEW

We finally remembered this place as its kind of off the main street and in a strip mall. Our first visit. The food was good. A huge menu to choose from. Not very busy the night we were there but they also do take out which seemed busy. Would go again.

I love the Tofu with Dry Garlic. The owners are from Beijing and have lots of new ideas. Service is good and you... More

We ordered takeout last minute, I was happy overall, the sweet and sour chicken was bland, but the chow men's and vegetables and rice was a nice surprise. The food was very natural tasting (I didn't taste MSG). Overall a decent experience.

We arrived in Powell River late and needed to feed 3 kids on a Thursday night. It was a in a little strip mall off the beaten track which was initially off putting but was clean and pleasant enough that we stayed. There were few other patrons and so the owners were attentive and waitress helpful. A set combo made... More

I saw that some people claim other Chinese restaurants are publishing bad reviews however I assure you we are just regular people who like good food. Since eating here, we have spoken with many others who agree with our... More

Instead my husband ordered a meal for 1 of sweet and sour pork and chicken chow mein which he very much enjoyed... More

Having looked at the reviews my suspicion is the other chinese restaurants were sending bad reviews on purpose

We just finished dinner and it was completely horrible. Deep fried prawns were disgusting. We also had chop suey, chicken chow mein and chicken fried Rice and it was all simply awful. I called to politely let them know but they were uninterested. Not recommended
