Visited: Friday, April 7, 2000. 6-7:45pm
Tasted by: Michael, Annette, David, Jonathan, Nora, Dennis. (plus time challenged Gina and Byran)

Dennis:
An interesting restaurant. If you can assure the door guard that you really want to eat chinese rather than canadian food they'll let you in. The food ranged from good to excellent (crispy rolls and spicy salted squid in particular). Cost for 6 was $12 each.
Recommended.

Dennis: Annette informs me that she had the veal not pork schnitzel. Her opinion still remains: excellent. I revisited the restaurant the following Tuesday and had their pork schnitzel again. I found it to be merely "very good" this time, as the coating was a bit overcooked. Still, a good place to go for schnitzel.

This is a knife and fork (chopsticks on request) chinese-canadian restaurant. We ignored the canadian page of the menu. We weren't quite sure what to make of the note on the outside door making note of Guyanese and West Indian style spicing.
The springrolls were homemade and tasty. The eggroll was crispy but rated only an acceptable in the taste department.
For a number of the dishes we were asked what sort of hot level we prefered (Nora was impressed with how hot "medium" was when it came to the hot & sour soup). You can pick from mild, medium, hot or suicide. We went with medium for all the dishes.
The "House Special Fried Rice" (6.25) had a fair bit of onion greens mixed in. David was a bit disappointed in the "General Soo Chicken" (a little more spice, and a bit less dough was needed). The "Spicy Shrimp with Mixed Vegetables" (8.75) was bit heavy in the onion department. It did, however, contain "killer broccoli" which ambushed the taste buds in the hot! department. The best dish was the "Beef Lo Mein" (5.95) with generous portions of beef and thick soft noodles. Delicious.
Cost with tax and tip was $50 for the 4 of us. A quite enjoyable meal. Annette was pleasantly surprised. As a restaurant in the "Chinese-Canadian" category it's recommended by the four of us.
