I was overly harsh with the last review

I never intended to dine here again, but someone else wanted to. We ordered off the menu, not the "dinner for two."

Starter: WonTon Soup. Actually quite nice, with BBQ pork.

Main: House Chowmein was the best dish, and above average. Honey-garlic chicken wings were fresh chicken and the sauce had a good balance between honey and garlic. We enjoyed the wings. The Szechuan Beef wasn't so good due to the goopy, shiny sauce on it. The vegetables in the beef dish were fresh (but none were authentic Chinese). The beef was sufficiently tender but nothing special.

We waited forever for the main course, but the server was attentive and explained at the beginning that the wings take a long time to cook. There are free newspapers to read if you don't have someone to talk to.

If you eat here you just have to get over the decor. The rest of the building is a Tool Shop and the restaurant's customers are suburban, blue-collar. There is no "free tea" to start and there are no chop sticks on the table (but they have them).

The Chinese food is extremely Westernized. They also serve regular diner food like Denver sandwiches, which I haven't tried yet. Value is good due so you'll get plenty to eat for your money.

Large potions of takeouts with 10% off the total price

Just discovered this place by chance while on the way to McDonalds for breakfast. Saw that they serve breakfast so me and the mrs decided to give it a try. Cheap breakfast costing around $4:50 for eggs, ham or saugage and hashbrowns and toast with free flow of coffee.
A couple of patrons were there and the server seems to greet them by name.

A few days later, we decided to order takeout for dinner and was impressed by the portion size. They offer a 10% discount for takeouts. We ordered the food, paid and was waiting in the car and the server came out and handed our orders.

Overall, if you are looking for reasonably priced chinese food which you can eat for 2 days (with the potion size), this is it.

Let me keep this short and simple. Food is great but the wait might be a bit long during breakfast times on weekends as it's packed! Service, is superb and outstanding. Mama Quan which is the waitress always has a smile on her face. Been there for a good 3 years now. Value cheap and underrated for the food. Ambiance is just not as good but it gives a relaxing view. Give it a try! :)

Cheapest Breakfast Ever

Somebody told me to check out this place for the chinese food. I wasn't terribly too impressed as it is a tiny little hole in the wall restaurant. However, the breakfast was superb. It's not the best tasting thing ever but cheap and decent quality food. I have a coffee, a breakfast, read the paper, and poof under $6 with a tip.

Good food, average prices, bad decor
By cheese_weasel of Coquitlam (5 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, May 22, 2010 - 6:54pm [Dine in]

I went here tonight based on the fantastic review from the poster below. I found the food was very good and FRESH, the chef could even be heard chopping the carrots and broccoli for my meal. Vegetables were clean.

The value was average at best: $9 before tax for a 3 item combo. Rice counts as one item.

The decor is very outdated and reminded me of the Austin Heights Diner. Tables looked clean but were a tiny bit sticky. Takeout would be the only option if I return here.

The owner then accidentally charged my Visa $94.00 instead of $9.40...hopefully this doesn't show up on my credit card statement!

Fresh Food -Worth the Wait
By coho of Burnaby (9 Reviews)

This is the best chinese food restaurant around . It may take awhile for the food to arrive but the food is very fresh. The place is clean and a secret gem of a restaurant. The staff take pride of the food, quality and service. I highly recommend this restaurant. We are becoming regulars and have not had a bad meal yet.
