Good deal for Breakfast
Submitted Wednesday, March 11, 2009 - 9:34pm [Dine in]

I only come here for breakfast and it is always PACKED. I think this is mainly because they serve the cheapest yet you get the most bang for your buck compared to every other HK style restaurants.
Value: for $2.95, you get a refillable drink, two eggs made to your request, two sausages or two slices of ham or two pieces of spam, and one slice of toast. Pretty good value.
Service: Service isn't that great...but adequate.
Food: Sure, the food isn't that great, but COME ON...for $2.95....you really can't get any better deals anywhere else. There are also other food combos you can also get...like omelets, congee, soy sauce chow mien, noodles in soup,....and the list goes on. Obviously, these items are not $2.95, but they are not more than $6.

If you do go on weekends, be sure to go early! (like at 9) because parking is limited and there will be a queue.

Pretty good dim sum
Submitted Thursday, March 5, 2009 - 6:44pm [Dine in]

I usually come here with my family for dim sum on the weekends. Our favorites include the fried wontons, brown sugar sponge cake with gold leaf (very creative and lightly sweet), and steamed dumplings with chives, pork and peanuts. The dim sum is pretty tasty; however, their shrimp dumplings could be better.
Service: Their service is satisfactory. What's irritating is that when there is a long wait during the weekends, the manager tends to seat "regular customers" rather than follow the list as who came first.
Value: prices are quite decent. pretty good value.
Ambiance: is not bad for a chinese restaurant. I think that re-painted their restaurant a couple months ago.

I would suggest going early on weekends (just when they open) so you won't have a long wait.

Pretty satisified
Submitted Thursday, March 5, 2009 - 6:33pm [Dine in]

I came here with my family a couple weeks ago. We ordered chicken, beef, and lamb satays, roti canai, shredded dry pork in sticky rice roll, Pad Thai, and Tropika Special Fried Rice. The food was extremely tasty and good; my favorite was the roti canai (warm, soft, chewy pastry type bread with a mild spicy curry dipping sauce) and the pad thai (noodles in a sweet, sour and mildly spicy sauce with egg, lots of shrimp and meat, and crushed peanuts).
Service: was satisfactory. The waiters were attentive but a bit on the snobby side, in my opinion. They were also a little bit pushy trying to "suggest" that we order more dishes.
Ambiance: was great. large windows gave it a more "open" feel and the decor was nice.
Value: the food was great, but a little on the pricey side as the portions were not that big. However, I will definitely return.

Pretty Good All You Can Eat
Submitted Thursday, March 5, 2009 - 6:21pm [Dine in]

I came here a couple weeks ago for lunch with a few friends. The food was pretty good- sushi was decently sized, sashimi was also a good size and all the other dishes such as the korean meat dishes had adequate portions too. I also like how you can specify the exact number of pieces of sushi you can order. The service was slow, though so we only re-ordered like twice or three times since the time limit was one and a half hours. For approximately $15 per person, lunch was a good deal.

Submitted Friday, January 2, 2009 - 9:22pm [Dine in]

Food: For lunch/tea time, I usually get the Baked Crispy Fish with Portuguese Sauce on Rice and it's usually pretty good (though a little bit too oily). For dinner, the curries and the Hai Nan Chicken are all time favourites. Their Chinese food is pretty authentic and pretty good compared to other Chinese restaurants.
Service: Service here is satisfactory. Sometimes, waitresses bang silverware on tables and such, but they do refill tea and respond when you ask for their attention.
Value: A decent value for this quality of food. Lunch/tea time set menus are usually $6-10 and includes a drink while dinner set menus are approximately $12.50 per person (includes soup, rice and dessert)
Ambiance: when you first walk in, it smells musty but it's not too bad. There are plenty of seats but a little re-modeling could be done.

An all time favourite
Submitted Friday, January 2, 2009 - 9:10pm [Dine in]

My family and I usually come here for dim sum (and we have dim sum a lot).
Food:Our favourites are the shrimp dumplings, and the shrimp and chives dumplings with spinich wrappings. Their portions are quite large and the dim sum is definitely quite tasty.
Service: there are enough waiters around and they are always attentive. They usually refill teapots promptly.
Ambiance: typical asian restaurant "feel"- on weekends, it is usually extremely packed and noisy so be prepared to "yell" rather than talk to people across from you.

In addition, on weekdays, there is a 20% off when you pay the bill before noon!
