This is a small but charming restaurant in Chinatown. The spicy wor won ton soup was a meal in itself filled with wontons, shrimp, bbq pork, chicken and vegetables. We also had the shrimp and vegetables in a noodle nest and ginger chicken. Everything was fresh and delicious and portions were generous. Service was friendly and fast. Highly recommend!

Stopped in for a bowl of their delicious Wor Won-Ton soup. The broth was very tasty & the vegetables were very fresh. Expensive though.

Excellent Asian restaurant just off Tan Fan Alley in Chinatown that has been there for many years. I would not call it a strictly Chinese restaurant. Hot n'Sour soup was excellent. Won-Ton soup was excellent. Also enjoyed the Thai prawns....

seriously, never go here. ever. the food is great, I've never had such terrible service in 20yrs in Victoria, it took 2 hours to have 3 dishes. the server could've cared less, there was a grand total of 8 people in the whole restaurant and all received the same. Just save yourself the hassle, you could literally make it from scratch in the time it took to get one drink. unreal

We were tired from travelling to Victoria so brought food home. The won ton soup was delicious and the stuffed fried chicken and shrimp balls too. The chow mein and mixed meat and vegetable stir fry good too. The low light was the beef fried rice, awfully bland. Everyone dining there seem to be a regular and liked their dishes very much.
