  • I've been here for lunch/dinner but had take out from Blossom City until tonight. The General Chicken was amazing. It holds it's own in a sea of szechuan dishes. That's because it isn't; really. The meal arrived in a timely fashion and was hot. Was impressed with the steamed veggies, huge chunks of zucchini was surprising to find. I did find however that the chicken balls were (though the most stereotypical 'chinese' food) over-battered and too doughy. Also the woman who took my order on the phone was a bit prompt, if not rude. I asked for my total and she said $53 and hung up. The meal did however cost $61 when the food came. I don't think she added the tax. I would eat in at this place again (it's just so cute) and order from here again though.

  • Order: General Chicken, Chicken Chow Mein, Eggrolls, Pork Fried Rice, Singapore Noodles, Steamed Veg, Chicken Balls, Chicken Wings

  • Delicious food! I don't know why the other reviews are so bad, but this was by far the best chinese food I have ever had! I went in with my friend and the service was awesome! We were seated immediately, and our food came in about 5-10 minutes! The owner was so nice, and the atmosphere was cozy!

    The food was delicious! YOU MUST try the general chicken! I can see why blossom city is so famous for it! Overall, I'm coming again soon!

  • the rice was terrible , really greassy and it was like it was made in large batches and reheated ,.
    The rice was chewy and oily
    The rest of the food was average , there no original
    items on the menu
    I would not order again and the person on the phone was rude
    I suspect they will be out of business within the year
    The only reason they are still in business is cheap lunch in a area where there is alot of trafic .

  • Order: basic menu items ,

  • We ordered the hot & sour soup, General Chicken and General Tso shrimp. Everything was incredibly sweet. The soup isn't supposed to be sweet & sour; it's supposed to be HOT & sour! The shrimp was supposed to be hot and spicy, or so it said on the menu, but it was drenched in sweet & sour sauce. The chicken was the best part of the meal and was mediocre at best. I have a couple of favourite places to go in Toronto's Chinatown and this place is nowhere near as good. Disappointed.

  • Order: Hot & sour soup, General Chicken, General Tso Shrimp

  • The food is tasty, not too overpowering with any one flavour. Not as greasy as a number of other restaurants are. They have a good online menu and fast delivery times. I would say this is our preferred Chinese food restaurant.

  • Order: spring rolls, chicken balls, breaded shrimp, chicken fried rice, yue heung beef, shanghi noodles

  • This was a delivery situation and the worst i've ever experienced with Chinese food--anywhere.

    They forgot the sauces for two dishes, did not include the normal plum sauce etc. for the egg rolls/spring rolls or the soups and the main dish we ordered--mixed seafood with black bean sauce was HORRIBLE. Fifteen dollars for four shrimps, one scallop cut in half and a bunch of green pepper. It was awful!!!!

    Cost us over eighty dollars-- tried calling to get our order straight with no answer and the poor kids had to go without the normal s/s etc. as well.
    We don't recommend. This place was good back in the day but something has happened.

    PS> i will be calling tomorrow to complain as well. It was that messed up and they would not answer the phone calls tonight at all. Very bad service and the food has gone downhill.

  • Order: Wonton soups, egg rolls, chickenballs, seafood specialty, singapore noodles, beef dish, veg mushu

  • We've had average take out from here before but their set menus all have a lot of fried food on so we decided to order from the main menu. The spring roll had only a few pieces of carrot and cabbage in, the shanghai noodles had small strips of tough pork that tasted metallic and there were only three shrimp in a large order. The sauce that covered the noodles was bitter. The orange beef was supposed to be spicy but only had areas where it was spicy, otherwise it was sickly sweet. Not a good experience, we're rethinking going back even for the average tasting set meals now. I noticed all the rave reviews are from 2008 and since then it hasn't been too good. Wish I'd read first and ordered (or not) later!

  • Order: Spring rolls, Hot and Sour Soup, Shanghai Noodles, Orange beef (a house specialty)

  • Now I know alot of people who enjoy this restaurant, and if I wanted greasy, salty, poorly cooked chinese food I would go here. It reminds me of Mandarin, but I prefer a flat rate for endless mediocre chinese food. Plus the woman taking our orders was snappy! I liked the prepackaged fortune cookie?

  • Order: general chicken, rolls

  • Just because its Burlington doesn’t mean food can’t be authentic. We had been looking for a restaurant in Burlington that served decent authentic Chinese food so we could avoid the drive into Toronto but this place isn’t it.

    We ordered a prawn dish, beef dish, fried rice and a low mein and both main dishes were drenched in the same cherry sauce that they serve at any average Chinese buffet. It was sooo sweet. The noodles we ordered had obviously been poached and not sautéed in the wok and lacked flavour. There were no chopsticks anywhere in sight. The tea was nice and the service was ok. Would not be going back ever.

  • Order: Prawn dish, beef dish, low mein and fried rice

  • Food is good quality and cooked well but uses sweet sauces to coat everything, we ordered beef with "Hong Kong style sauce" and a seafood dish but both came covered in the same sweet plumb sauce. Uses low quality egg noodles in noodle dishes but vegetables are fresh and cooked well.

    Egg roll was obviously cooked from frozen and was cold in the middle.

    Typical Chinese food for the Burlington area. A good food match for the type of people in the area but authentic it is not.

    Service is great. wait staff are very friendly.
