I have been there more than a few times, but everytime was because someone else want to go. The food are not bad, but don't live quite to par as the price they charge. The seafood they use in thier dishes are not fresh, the reason you can't really taste the unfreshness is because almost every plate is spicy.
I won't pick that place if I am the one who let choose the dinner spot.

Went there for the afternoon tea and that cost about $80/person with the tax and a 15% tips.
The tea and refreshments are not bad but definitely NOT worth the price they charge you, all together it probably should cost $20/person. It is a nice hotel lobby with someone play the piano, but the seats and tables are getting old, I wonder for that kinda price they charge you, can they replace something decent? So much fame about this hotel, but they don't perform to the par, actually it's way below....
I gave a 15% tip for it's fine dinning's sake, but when the waitress poured our tea to the cups, it spilled all over the place, strange, it seemed she didn't see that at all!

Lets face it, it is a Chinese restaurant on Kingsway with a pretty good price, so ain't wanna ask too much for the service. When I go to the Chinese/East Indian restaurants, I don't expect too much service anyway since their price are usually pretty low. This restaurant is there for at least 20 years, so that must be something good about it.
I love their chicken and pork dishes, their salted chicken is simply the best when dip them in the chilli sauce.

Been there many times and I love this restaurant.
(1) Service is fast and fair, the severs don't talk too much but friendly enough.
(2) They are NOT stingy like some other all-u-can eat Japanese restaurants when they give you your orders. They are always in big portions.
(3) Raw fish are VERY FRESH! and it's a MUST for a Japanese restaurant since you eat them raw.

Damn, first time there last Wednesday, and it's so bad about almost everything.
(1) Food items are stale along the food bar, and later I found out the pork and shimp stinks really bad!
(2) The mid-aged oriental cook(Mongolian?) who flips on the grill seems so unhappy, and every word spitted out of his mouth was shouting: Guess the price!!.... like he's gonna kill you if you don't. Very rude too when I asked if there are any MSG added in the food.
(3) My meal came to an incredible $23.59 for a bunch of noodles and a bit of pork and shimp. I'm sure the same plate of food would cost only $6.95 in a Chinese/Japanese restaurant. Drinks are also very pricy, local beers are priced at $4.25 before 16% tax.
However, the only good thing pleasant was the service that night. The oriental waiter who served us was very friendly and talkative, also gave us a detailed direction to the RiverRock Casino, he even drew a map for us, excellent service! But tell the truth, I won't recommend this place at all even I gave a hi5 to the waiter, because everything else were just simply bad.
