If you like the 'red' coloured sweet & sour sauce that 99.9% of other Chinese restaurants use, you won't find it here. The first time I ordered S&S boneless pork months ago, I was disappointed the sauce was a colourless, cornstarchy, oversweet mess. I should of returned it but gave them the benefit of the doubt, thinking they had a new cook or he just forgot to add the red food colouring to the sauce. Recently, I phoned in and reordered the Chow Mein, Beef & Broccoli and S&S Pork dishes. I explained to them about my past order and that I wasnt happy with it. The fellow said their sauce is always red and I must be mistaken. So I told him I would reorder but emphasized my concern about the sauce in question. I picked up the order and was totally pissed off after opening up the S&S Pork. White sauce! Yuck! That went directly into the garbage. Now, after two times of ordering it here, that will be my last time ! Either the cook is colour blind or thats the way they always prepare it. Sweet & Sour Lean Pork can be a good dish if prepared properly & consistently like other Chinese restaurants in the city. I definitely will stay with Mings where they have the best Chinese Food in the city.

A couple of friends and myself stopped here for a meal and a few pints recently. We were suprised by their new and improved menu to choose from. The service was much better than the last visit and the food quality has also improved and prices are o.k. too. We were all pleased with our meals along with the friendly service. The new manager was especially nice. Now that summer is finally here, we plan on sitting out on their patio more often. The bus stop is conveniently just around the corner on Menzies St. Cheers!
