I would think more than 80% of the readers who voted this restaurant to be Richmond's best Chinese Restaurant are NOT Chinese. The main reason is because the one and only time I've been there, the food seemed so "fusion" (the the type of fusion that "Red Door" serves) to me. It's totally westernized Chinese food.
Wontons are supposed to have shrimps in them, but the wontons I had there contained only pork, which is really weird. I tried to order a dish or steamed vegetables, which is available at all wonton houses, the waiter did not know what I wanted to order.
I personally think, if you want more decent westernized Chinese food or wontons, Number 9 at Lansdowne Mall might be a better choice.
I have to agree with the previous posts. Chinese food is everywhere in Richmond. Yet within the Ironwood area, this is the one and only. I suppose that is why they feel that they can charge $2 for a small bowl of plain rice. Most other restaurants (even fine dining) would charge $.50 for a bowl of the same size. Their cost is probably $.05. Their prices are outrageous because they have a monopoly in this area. Sure you can drive another 10 mins to town core and get mindblowing chinese fare, but sometimes you just want to eat and be done. It is a healthier alternative than McDonalds, so they have a nice following. A lunch special is $9.95 which includes 1 bowl of plain rice, a bowl of wonton soup (4 measely pieces of wontons) and a very small plate entree of your choosing. The portions are so small you cannot hope to share (even with a child). So a family of four would spend close to $40 plus tax and tip maybe $50 for lunch. That is an expensive chinese lunch. You can go to any chinese restaurant for lunch for $30 and be satisfied and full with a much bigger variety of food. So my main complaint is the PRICE. The food aint worth the price.
Went to this place after reading in the local paper that it was voted as the best chinese restaurant in richmond. Considering the number of chinese restaurants in richmond(gazillion), i just had to try it since the public feels it's better than a lot of really good ones out there. AS it is called Wun tun rest. i decided to get the wuntun noodle. To my disappointment, there was nothing special about the wuntun... it was actually one of the worst i've had. The soup was alright and the noodle wasn't the best. We also ordered beef brisket soup as they are out of bbq duck (how can you run out of bbq duck with the place specializes in bbq meat?) Didn't taste like good chinese food no wonder i didn't see any chinese people in the place. Not going back again.
