  • Located in an industrial building. We walked in and were told to wait a few minutes for a table. As we stood there we looked around and the fact that the place was beyond filthy became painfully apparent. The carpets were old, dirty and stained and even the walls had dirt and food on them. There was rotting food on the floor, dust on everything and newspapers strewn on the floor. The place hasn't been cleaned or even vacuumed in a long time. The dirty fish tanks had only dead and dying fish in them. One dead fish was actually past the point of decaying. We looked at each other in horror and walked out without eating. I'm surprised this dump hasn't been shut down yet and even more surprised that people would actually eat there.

  • Tremendous - Horrible, Horrible, HORRIBLE!!!

    We visit this restaurant for either dim sum or dinner.
    This time we went for Dim Sum & had the worse experience ever!!

    We ordered from the carts - like we normally do, then while eating our dishes (at this point on our 12th or so dish) we found what looked like a cigarette butt in the Shrimp balls - we were so surprised, we thought: "No way!"

    I took it up to further inspect it and it unravelled in my hand and I smelt it to be sure - for sure it was a cigarette butt, filter and all!!! We were in SHOCK!! I immediately called one of the waiters over and they quickly removed it from the table and said we are sorry - we will accommodate this bill. We thought: "ok" although we weren't looking for the whole bill to be taken care of - maybe half if anything.

    He then proceeded to the owner who came over and said "absolutely not, we won't comp the whole meal, just the one item that had the butt" saying that it must have been a "mistake", as to how it got in the our dish. (we certainly didn't put it in there, none of us even smoke)

    MISTAKE???? - what was this man thinking :S

    All this being said - we asked for the bill, paid immediately and left - Never to come back.

    We expected that they would react differently to such an occurrence, however, he just dealt with it like it was an every day occurrence. It was just his mannerism - it was so unprofessional, like he could care less.

    Who knows what else was in our food on prior occasions that we never saw - hair, bugs!?!

    DO NOT EAT HERE - IT'S DIRTY, THE BATHROOMS AREN'T WELL KEPT and the CARPET is GRUNGY. You're telling me with all the revenue they bring in, they can't maintain the place?!

    By the way, my husband immediately went for his Hepatitis shot at the clinic, as he was the only one who had eaten from that dish - who knows in this day and age.

    This restaurant is officially the WORST Restaurant ever!!

  • this place is garbage.

    i never came to this restaurant for 6 years, due to the bad service and that the food was dirty. i decided not to come again due to the fact that the sticky rice i ordered was old and smelly from the previous day. and when the waitress took the dish away he had not reaction like it always happened.

    when i came back the other day. they are still the same. they have never took the effort to change. the washrooms, wall, chairs are not maintained. probably due to the fact it is 24 hours.

    people continue to dine at this place, due to it being cheap. but i strongly encourage you to try different places such as Royal Dragon or Emerald.

  • Oh dear. When I find a hair or roach in my food, I don't usually broadcast it. But this place treated it like a daily event.

    First was a black hair in the shrimp. I ignored it and tucked into the various plates we ordered. Average tasting but with good company, it was nothing wroth complaining about.

    Then, much to my misfortune I find a medium roach in the baby bok choy, after having consumed half the dish. When I showed it to the waiter to discreetly remove the plate, she squirmed and refused to touch the plate. She calls another waiter who asks if she is meant to remove the dish from the table and if she should strike it from the bill. Um, yes!!!! No apology, nothing.

    With our appetites lost, we left the rest of our ordered plates. We paid and left. No-one said anything to us.

    Guys, a roach in the food is just not cool, ok?! Hair AND roach and you get me complaining publically!!!

  • Order: szechuan shrimp; baby bok choy, brocolli, steamed chicken and ginger; beef and green pepper and cashews, steamed rice

  • This place will never qualify as high-class dining but food has been consistently good for over a decade. Does not hurt that it is a 24/7 operation. Only place I am aware of that you can get dim sum any time night or day.

  • Order: dim sum, szechuan style dishes

  • I've been to Tremendous for many years with family for special occasions or just to eat. Over the years, I noticed the quality of the food to deteriorate. The food is alright, some of the menu items such as the shrimp with snowpea greens is delicious though. The service of waiters is decent considering the volume of customers though the manager is an outright jerk. I went to go get additional napkins and 2 knives for my family as we needed them, and got yelled at by the manager having her say "you're taking like a billion of them". Afterwards, she was staring at my table with an unsettling look, which made the overall dining experience not that great. The price range is very affordable and good (as a plus side). The restaurant could be much cleaner and the washrooms *should* be cleaner as well. I recommend this restaurant to those who just plan to grab a cheap and quick eat then leave.

  • Food: The dim sum here is delicious, as is the dinner menu. For no-nonsense, tasty and fresh Cantonese-style food, this place is a safe bet!

    Service: Adequate, in a typical, busy-Chinese-restaurant way.

    Atmosphere: Not a stunningly gorgeous place, for certain, but definitely family-friendly!

    Price range: Very affordable.

    Overall: I have been coming here for years with my family and recommend it. There is a bit of a wait on weekends for lunch after 1:30pm (dim sum is discounted) but I think it's worth it!

  • Order: har gow, siu mai, spring rolls and other dim sum items

  • The food has been getting better and the price is good. However, I've noticed that once you pay your bill (cash only), they will not bring you back any change. I've experienced this twice, and both times the difference in the total amount of cash paid and the total on the bill would have become very high tips. They don't even ask if you want any change back. I don't like the fact that they will assume you wouldn't ask for change so that they will pocket the change for themselves as tips. And when I recently asked for change, the waiter said very loudly and rudely to another waiter that I paid this much and the bill was that much, and that I wanted change. This was an attempt to embarrass me. Who does that???

    The point is to bring some change with you so you won't have to overpay in tips and have to either: 1) let it go, or 2) get the change back and face embarrassment.

  • We've been regulars there for years. Dim sum very good and cheap = excellent value for money. Good variety, especially Saturdays. Wait staff friendly, little turnover, treat steady customer like old friends. Prices drop after 1:30 pm. Wait about 30 mins to get seated Friday afternoon.
