My boyfriend and I dine at the On On Wonton House quite often and we quite enjoy it. When we first went there, the atmosphere didn't impress us to say the least, but the food made up for it!!
All the items we have tried at the On On have been quite delicious. From the amazing lettuce wraps, to the great fried rice. Our favourite order for the teo of us is combination dinner 2B ($28). The wonton soup is not the best I have had, but it is very good. The fried rice, the lemon chicken, and the sweet and sour pork are all great!! I highly recommend them!! This dinner for two still gives left overs, with their large portions.
The wait staff is always coming around and checking on you. They are not always the friendliest, but its still good service all round... they never forget about you!!
When you walk in, it leaves something to be desired, but stay for the food before making a judgement of it!!!

Upon reading a review of this restaurant, we were not looking to visit it, but seeing as our first choice was closed that day, we thought about giving it a chance. Upon arriving we were seated in a dining room that was much too classy for their food. We ordered and three other tables that had arrived after us, and ordered after us were being served while we were left waiting for even our soup! While we waited, we were drinking quite possibly the worst tea I have ever had in my life. While waiting, not once did our waiter come by to check on us. Eventually our meal was served, which I am regretting eating now. Neither of us finished our wonton soups, as they did not taste good. When our main courses arrived, the sweet and sour pork was good, the chow mein was alright, but the chicken and vegetable dish we got was quite possibly the worst I've had. First few bites were okay, then not once but TWICE I had bites that tasted like they were soaked in soap, which I immediately spit out! And still, no waiter to be found! The ladies who brought us our meal did not speak to us, just dropped off the dishes and left. We did not speak to our waiter again till we already had the bill. The entire staff made us feel like outcasts and basically ignored us.
I was more than displeased with this restaurant!!
I would never eat there again, and neither would my boyfriend.
I gave the food a 2 because two of the four dishes were alright, but the soup, the tea, and the chicken and vegetables were horrible!
The ambiance also got a two from me, because it was a classy feel and the wait staff were dressed very nice, but it was much too classy for the meal and service we received. Overall, four thumbs down!!
