Sometimes the food is good. Have in the past had good wonton soup, but when returning another time very disappointed. Overspiced. Not the same as was.

We were surprised by the quality as previous reviews weren't flattering! Fresh ginger flavour and bright fresh veggies in the chop suey - fried rice was a little bland but still enjoyable, and chow mein was also good! A great choice for a lazy Sunday night in Mill Bay.

This is the closest Chinese food restaurant to my home, for take out food, so that is why I used it. Menu has a reasonable variety but items purchased were only average quality and over priced. I may look further afield next time.

Last time we went the food was awful but we thought we would try again tonight as maybe it was a one off. It's was equally terrible. Noodles were bland, tasteless and dry and the sesame chicken was burnt and tasted burnt hubby couldn't eat it. Sweet and sour pork sauce was so sickly and jello like it was inedible.... More

There food is OK but a little overpriced. That being said it is the closest Chinese food to our house.

it saddens me to have to renege any favourable reviews I used to have about your establishment and food. Today will be the last time we visit when we are wanting Chinese for dinner. Your available selection has diminished and what was available was horrible!! The chow mein tasted smokey; the sesame chicken was more like jerky and the beef... More

It was good to eat in a place where you see the locals eating, that always says something. They were busy but the food was fresh and the service was quick.

Sometimes it's good. Sometimes not so much. It seems like if they're busy the food gets fresher. If they're not so busy, the food seems to sit around a while and isn't so fresh. We only go there once in a while (maybe twice a year or so) and only when we're particularly lazy and right in the area. There... More
