  • The food is usually very good, but sometimes you get a chow mein that has extremely mushy noodles. Anything that is battered and fried comes in a horrifying pasty white colour making it look like its extremely undercooked, and sometimes it is. Service is sometimes really bad. Decor can make you leave the place without ordering if you are new. Restaurant is extremely unsofisticated, makes you think that they know nothing of restaurantica or even the internet.

  • Order: Cantonese chow mein, wonton soup, sweet sour chicken balls

  • Have been a customer since I was a kid in the early 60s growing up in the area. Food is always excellent, freshly cooked and plentiful. I now live in Caledon, but often come back here to get food and take it home. Best Chinese food around! Decor hasn't changed much in 40 years, but being just a takeout counter, it doesn't make much difference. You are wise to order well in advance by phone to save a long wait at the counter, especially on special holidays.

  • While the food may be good, the service is lacking and has been for many years.

    They could subscribe to other credit cards, not just Visa.

  • Order: They make the best egg foo young, egg rolls and special fried rice.

  • This restaurant has been around since the late 1960's and has always been popular with the locals.

    We drive out from Hwy 10 and Eglinton to pick it up. It is always fresh, delicious and good value. The wonton soup, sweet and sour sauce and eggrolls are fantastic.

    We have many Chinese restaurants much closer to us than Far East but Far East is worth the drive.

    My friend drives in from Snelgrove to pick up their food-it's that good.

  • Order: Won ton soup, egg rolls, chicken balls, cantonese chow mein, jumbo shrimp, chichen fried rice

  • This place has really great chinese food..but a few tips;

    Order early - they tend to be busy and take a long time to prepare and deliver
    If you are ordering to pick up - order over the phone and it will be ready in about 45 minutes to pick up - if you walk in to order, you'll be waiting forever just to order, since they are always in the back cooking.

    It takes a while, but it is well worth the wait!!

  • Order: Pork Fried Rice, Wonton, Beef & broccoli, Cantonese Chowmein, chicken balls, 4 egg rolls, honey garlic ribs
