We ordered delicious crab claws, each for $4. The spinach and salt fish Choy is tasty.
Ginger and green onion Lobster is my favourite.
Got complimentary pork bone soup and " tung swee " dessert after.
Service is slow, if you dont mind waiting, the food is good,
We went at 5:00 pm before the crowds filled the restaurant.

Used to be a very famous family running restaurant in Scarborough, with yammy Chinese dishes. We went to there for Chinese New Year gathering and reserved a table already, but still needed to wait for half hour.

After serving the soup (free for every table), we were waiting for almost 1 hour for the first dish! We are not the only table to complaint, there are many other tables also complaint about the extremely slow service.

It was full between 6-7pm, then the business was slowing down and they should speed up the dishes serving, but not.

The taste of food is also disappointed. The smoked chicken is well known in this restaurant, however, tasteless, extremely soft texture like tofu. Deep fried oyster is supposed to come with salt and soya sauce, but none. All other dishes are average, but not as good as before. It is also pricey for such quality.

Easy to find with ample parking. Ambiance is a throw back to the old 60's or 70's and could very much use an updated renovation or freshening up. Large menu to choose from. Didn't find the usual Chinese food dishes any better than their competitors. Would have appreciated the dishes served hotter (by temperature) rather than bordering on lukewarm. Their seafood selections are ample to choose from and prepared very well. The dishes prepared in a bird's nest are very good. Service is on the slow side. Menu prices are costly for what you get.

Restaurant in decline. It used to be good, but every time we've went back recently, it has been getting worse.

This place is a family favourite and we've been eating here for years! (Especially for large family dinners and gatherings) Been coming here since I was a kid and my favourite dishes have not changed at all in the past 15 years.

Highly recommend the the scallop and mango in birds nest and the shrimps in thousand island sauce. No other Chinese restaurant I've been to makes it as well as they do! (Although I do recommend trying the mango dish in the summer when mangoes are in season) Their oysters are also very good.
