  • Impressive! Best Chinese food in Chatham-Kent county as far as we know. The chicken curry was awesome, egg rolls were really good the plum sauce that went with them was excellent, sweet and sour shrimp were great. The people that run the restaurant and serve the food are very friendly and personable. The dining area and bathroom were very clean. My Husband and I would definitely go back, definitely take others and I would highly recommend this restaurant for dine in or take out. If you are dining in, please note the dining area is small, we arrived early so we had our choice of seating,however, during a supper time rush ... LOL well, it would be wait for a seat or order take out I'm sure.

  • Order: Egg rolls, deep fried won tons, sweet and sour shrimp, chicken curry with vegetables and Fortune Express Special (Tai Dop Woop)

  • The restaurant is small for seating, so we always grab take out. Food still consistently good. We grab the take out every couple of weeks. If order is over $20 it is a 10% discount to cash payments.
    Always accomodating in switching a dish out for another of equal value on the package orders.
    Keep up the great food

  • PROs: Family style seating, you share the table with people, it's nice and obviously this place gets enough regulars to keep them in business.

    Food was fresh, hot and tasty. Exactly what you want if you are thinking of having good Chinese food.

    CONs: This place is tight, not the best place to go if you want a quiet dim lit table.

    Menu is non-flexible. I asked for an extra egg to be added to my fried rice and was told no. Which I thought was weird, I offered to pay extra for it, and again was told no. Umm okay.

    I've ordered take out all my life in NYC, and you ask them to add an egg for $1, they crack that egg. I know this is Chatham, and I don't expect the same service, but hello?

    Overall my experience was pleasant, nice people, decent meal, despite the tight spaces. They have a good location just outside the Sears Mall, used to be walking distance from my old house, but now we go somewhere else. We drive by sometimes, but mostly to hit Buns Master up the street.

  • Order: spring rolls, pork fried rice, beef n broccoli, chicken balls

  • Not much to say... small, somewhat cramped little place. Food was ok, nothing special. Service was ok, nothing special. The food seemed fresh and hot. I'd go back if I happen to be near the mall. Did not have any MSG side effects afterwards - so that's a plus.

  • Order: Lunch Combo: Won Ton Soup, Rice, Chicken Balls

  • I had to stay overnight in Chatham. So the question, where to eat. I checked this site for reviews and was convinced that it would be a good place to get take out (I wanted to watch TV back at the room and eat).

    The food was ready promptly and it is very good. It's Canadian style chinese food, not authentic style. But it is a very good meal and generous. I'd just do one thing different next time: "ask for NO MSG." Their application of it was light, but I object to this chemical and am mildly allergic. My fault. I forgot. If you eat in, it's pretty tiny, but clean.

  • Order: A combo meal. Only about $8 for dinner.

  • It's always a pleasure coming to this restaurant. It is true that their prices have gone up by roughly one dollar per plate, but it is well worth it for what you get. I am often given more food than I can eat. The place is small, but everything else is great.

  • Order: Combo #3

  • The prices have gone up a lot since they opened in the building they're at but it's still a lot of food for a reasonable price. I prefer takeout because the restaurant itself is very small. The food is great though and usually good service as well. We just had it the other day and it was delicious!

  • Order: Rice, Chop Suey, Egg Roll, Chicken Balls
