My husband and I go here quite a bit, and though it's not a fancy upscale place, the food is really good.
The wontons in the wonton soup really ARE handmade and to get a really good value, ask for the "large" or "Xtra large" size.
If you want the Canadian food on the menu, the server reccomends the Chinese instead, and to be honest, I would agree with her. No, it's not terrible, just that the highlight of the place is the chinese cuisine.
In paticular, the Almond or Lemon chicken, and the deep fried prawns make you take notice. The batter they are dipped in is likely made with Free Range eggs because it cooks up really nice and tasteful, not the drab oily dishes many other chinese restaurants have. Always crisp, but never hard to bite into.
The Combo for one dishes are a great value, and when you also order jasmine tea with them, makes the meal complete.
The vegetables are always bright, vibrant and steamed fresh. They have the crunch you expect of freshly steamed food. The sauces on the dishes are light and flavorful, not overpowering the dish at all.
We ordered the following:
Beef and Broccoli
Deep Fried Prawns
Sweet and Sour Pork
Chicken Chop Suey
Nothing to complain about here whatsoever. It is a favorite of ours, and we will keep eating here.
As stated above, the decor is not fancy, as the location has been here since the late 1970's, early 1980's (it looks to be that age) and the washrooms aren't fancy but they are really clean. Not that you'd want to eat in the bathroom.
