  • I am chinese/Canadian so I've eaten the Cantonese style food in Toronto and Vancouver and know what's really good. This place is the typical Canadian Chinese, but better quality than most places.

    Ace Chinese downtown is really bad

    Thai-Viet downtown is also really bad

    Royal Oak and Golden Wok I have not tried before.

    Atmosphere, normal, it came from a diner type style, sometimes restaurant is cold, washrooms are pretty clean.

    The owners and staff are always very nice & friendly. They get a lot of people coming in and eating breakfast.

    I can say this place is very decent quality. The food is cooked with very little MSG and fresh. Below are some of the dishes I have had:

    1. Chicken Chow Mein - 8/10, Good tender slices of chicken, celery, carrots , beansprouts in a soysauce based corn starchy gravy.

    2. Singapore Curry Noodles - 9/10 Shrimp was fresh, it had bits of bbq pork, green onions, sprouts and some egg, and curry was very nice and mild. The noodles are vermecelli rice noodles.

    3. Wonton Noodles - 9/10, Best wontons in Orillia by far, and fresh pork and shrimp inside them. Noodles are very chewy and not salty tasting, broth is the best part it's made from scratch.

    4. Lunch Deal Combo- Broccolli & Beef ( good flavour and not overcooked ) , Chicken Fried Rice, had a bit too much soy sauce, excellent lemon chicken, battered and sauce was tangy and delicious. Spring rolls that came with it were perfectly fried and fillings were cabbage, carrots and onions mm.

    5. Dim Sum (pretty damn fresh)
    I had their dumplings before with pork, home made and soo good and freshly fried on the outside. The bbq pork bun is fresh too. The har gow (shrimp dumpling ) was okay, a little dry but the filling was good with minced shrimp meat. The Beancurd sheet rolls were excellent with gravy on top of the sheets of tofu beancurd wrapped in minced pork. The sui mai was nice and juicy, hot and good flavour, again fresh.

    Overall I would definitely recommend this place.

    For breakfast it's actually one of the places that have less oil used, and not greasy. Bacon, Toast, Eggs, Juice, Coffee.. the usuals, even the sausages are good..

    Try it out!

  • Order: Appetizers, Dim Sum, Dinner, Lunch, Breakfast

  • Just your run-of-the mill, mall-grade Chinese. Greasy and uninspired. Won't hurt you to go once, but I can't see being moved to make a second visit.

  • Order: Dinner combo; General Tao's Chicken, chicken chow mein, chicken fried rice, egg roll

  • Having been to all the Chinese restaurants in Orillia, this is by far the best, seconded by Golden Wok and Royal Oak. The other 2 are not worth visiting. Go to Gung Ho! The food is freshly prepared, very well presented, well cooked and most of all, very tasty.

  • Order: Family Meal - it was excellent

  • Food is fantastic - not your typical Canadian Chinese Cuisine. Definitely order the Rainbow Chop Appetizer - Wonderful. The staff are exceptionally friendly and quick - Food is fresh, very tasty and leaves you feeling nurished unlike most Chinese Restaurants.
    The only complaint would be the location - the food deserves a nicer building, but I can accept that they had to start somewhere.

  • Order: RAinbow Chop, Fillet of Beef with pepper, chicken mushroom pot, vegetable fried rice,
