Moved into Cap mall

I believe they have moved in the Capilano Mall. It says Thai food but it's really a Chinese food fair restaurant where you pick 1-3 items plus rice or noodle. I don't know why they call it a Thai restauant as all of the dishes are Chinese. Tried the beef brisket - skimp on the meat which was tough and spicy wontons - average. Came with rice vermeceilli for $6.99. Overall, edible but won't return. Quick service as food is pre-made. Poor value based on quantity and quality.

This hidden & out of the way place, makes great chinese food and I think majority of their business is take out. I have grazed around the menu over the last few years, and found their food to be fresh, tasty, not greasy and enjoyable.

I like their combo or individual dishes, I like their egg fried rice, beef in black bean sauce, sweet & sour pork, wonton soup, egg rolls to chicken with vegetables to name a few.

If you're going to eat here, it can be warm inside and they have fans, but rarely have I ever seen them on. As for the service, it can be slow, like watching paint dry, to the point they ignore you. As soon as you got it figured out, they can be very friendly to the point of being obnoxious. This is why the majority of time I will order my food ahead of time.

This place makes great chinese food, you will get lots, its fresh, and you're definately have left overs for the next day.

I will be back and next time, it will be take out.

In a word, no.

My wife & I popped in on a rainy Saturday afternoon and the place was dead. You'd think with no business to speak of the service would be above-par, but it wasn't. The one lady working the joint was about as unfriendly as possible without being hostile. It was as if we were more a nuisance than hungry, paying customers. Be that as it may, the food was laughable at best. We were told we could choose 3 items from the heat-lamp table and that was it. No ordering a la carte. What was on offer was gray, and looked wilted there under the heat lamps. Even still, we figured, 'This place looks awful and is never busy, yet it's still here and dinehere gave it some good reviews - so there must be SOMETHING about it.' What a mistake. It was awful! We ate about a third of our plates, paid, and bailed. As we were first sitting down, another couple came in their experience seemed to be much the same as ours. I saw them exchange sideward glances, and the husband exclaim to his wife, "Hey, YOU picked it!" You know what, do yourself a favor and go next door to Capilano Mall's food court and you'll probably have a better experience with the mall food than we did here. This was horrendous.
