Great Food, Good Prices, Good Service
Submitted Tuesday, December 7, 2010 - 2:16pm [Dine in]

My family and I love going here - it has a great, relaxed atmosphere (nicely decorated, too), everything is clean, the service is fast and friendly, and the food is really, really good. We especially love their dumplings!! The best part is that the prices are very reasonable - I feel like we can have a decent meal, fairly healthy, and quickly, without breaking the bank. Their drinks are delicious as well, but do make the bill creep up, so we have those if we're in the mood for a treat. I would strongly recommend this place to try.

Yummy food, but don't look in the corners!
Submitted Tuesday, December 7, 2010 - 1:56pm [Dine in]

I went to this restaurant in the summer with a group. It was a busy time, so I didn't get a chance to really look around. The food was excellent, and I loved creating my sauce according to the menu above the sauce cart. Great fun!! We've been a couple of times since then. On my last visit however, I had the misfortune of needing to use the restroom. YUCK! The toilet was scummy, behind the taps there was a science experiment underway with green things growing in it, and the walls were filthy. That made me look around with a keener eye. The main part of the restaurant is kept pretty clean, but I noticed when I was standing to pay that the floor in the kitchen (the corner I could see) was horrible. I don't think I'll be back again - it really turned me off. If they are only keeping things that you are likely to notice clean, and neglecting the things that you aren't as likely to see, it sounds like a recipe for trouble to me. I hope they clean things up, as I would love to return here, I'm just not keen on the risk now.

Most delicious cupcakes!
Submitted Tuesday, December 7, 2010 - 1:46pm [Take-out]

I'm a bit of a cake and cupcake fan, though I try not to indulge very often. I came across this neat little place tucked away in downtown PoCo. It has a really funky kind of atmosphere - they even turned an old fashioned refrigerator into a display cabinet. When I went in I was blown away by the artistry in the cakes and their cupcakes as well - from elegant and sophisticated to funny and playful!! They have an Alice in Wonderland themed cake on display, and it could stand against any of the cakes I've seen on those TV shows (ie: Cake Boss, etc). I ordered a selection of mini cupcakes, and a few full size cupcakes - half expecting them to be all show and no go - I was dead wrong, the icing was perfect, not too sweet & not too much - and the cake itself was moist, delicious and so flavourful. The people were extremely friendly and helpful, and while it isn't cheap, I think it compares in price to the other cupcake places, and far surpasses them in flavour and texture. We sampled a selection of their other goodies - mmmm mmmmm!! I would give this place a try!!

Apparently coupon bearers don't deserve good service here
Submitted Saturday, May 2, 2009 - 12:39pm [Dine in]

For many years this was one of our favourite restaurants, service had been good and the food was usually good. I find the ambiance only so-so. We would go for anniversaries or birthdays a couple times a year. We've sent many people there with high recommendations. So it was with lovely anticipation that we went there last night for my mother's 60th birthday.

When I called to make reservations for the party, I waited on hold for over 6 minutes. I hung up & called back, then was miraculously handled right away (I think they'd forgotten I was on hold). Then I had to negotiate in order to get separate bills for our party of 10 and have them accept any Entertainment Cards. While having to "get special permission" from the manager to do this seemed excessive, he gave us a limit of 3 coupons for the entire table, of which we only used 2 - this seemed reasonable.

Things started fine, though they were very slow to bring the bread. The starters were fine. Then the meals came, all EXCEPT for one. Manager said there'd been an accident in the back, her dish had been spilled, it would only be 4 minutes. Fine.

The promised 4 minutes was more like 15 minutes!! My poor aunt had to just sit there while we all ate our meals. I had the braised pork, which was tasty, but there was very little rice, which was poorly cooked, some hard and crunchy, some mushy! We all shared some of our meals with her (it would be cruel otherwise). By the time her meal arrived, we were almost done ours. She had the seafood hot pot, which again was tasty, but was very watery - more like a soup. Then we all had to sit while she got to eat her meal, however due to the nibbling, she wasn't able to finish even half of it. This was awkward for everyone.

We were all surprised when her bill arrived and she was charged full price. I brought it to the manager's attention, and he said "Well, I did you a favour by splitting the bills AND accepting the coupons". My reply was to thank him, but that had no effect or benefit to her, she did not use a coupon. He looked at me, stiffened, said "Fine", snatched her bill from the table and stormed off in a huff. She was given 1/2 price for the entree. The waitress tried to justify his actions. He continued to either glare at me, then when I saw him, he'd pointedly look away, as we went about paying our bills and leaving.

The reason I went through the trouble of bringing this to the manager is because it was going to affect the waitress's tip otherwise. It was not her fault, so I didn't think she should suffer for it. It was management's responsibility to make a mistake of this magintude right to their customer - a simple, sincere apology (his was VERY insincere), and even $5 off her bill would have mollified her and us. However 1/2 price with a bad attitude will ensure that none of us will ever return again. For the prices they charge (my bill came to $80 for myself & my son) one expects a little more. A true shame!
