Fantastic place always friendly, polite and attentive. Nice and big restaurant not squished in like the place around the corner and they dont rush you. Fast turn around of yum cha with also many dishes to choose from the menu.
Must have a new chef as yum cha selection has expanded in a good way. We go every Sunday and have done for almost 20 years as parking is plentiful and food has always be good. Not great but you are not rushed and to tossed out exactly in 60 minutes like the other Chinese restaurants in the area on a Sunday.
Last reviewed this place 2 years ago and I have now a need to update. We are very regular diners visiting nearly every Sunday at least for 22 years. Lawrence is a great cook and yum cha is part of our weekly ritual. We come because the food is good 👍 😃
How ever the facilities are in need of serious attention, the mens toilet, the hand dryer in the urinal area fell off the wall 4 years ago and till this day the brackets and wires remain hanging out of the wall and no alternate means of hand drying available in this area. The disabled cubical has the only working dryer and soap dispenser in the toilet area. The holes in the wall have only been there 3 years but show no signs of getting larger. The women's toilets are, I'm told are marginally better. Both are clean but lacking any sense of modern hygienic style or standard.
Come on guys get the tilers in, tile the whole place, floors to ceiling, update the hardware and put in new modern dryers.
While you are at it, the restaurant has not had anywork in 25 plus years, the chairs needed recovering 10 years ago and the tables, well they are historically well used.
Recently your prices have gone up, which is fully understood with increased costs, but now as customers we have to ask, if we are prepared to overlook the decor and shoddy toilet facilities because we like the food and familiar staff. We will hang in a bit longer but one bad dish would tip the scales.
We had a nice dinner here however there were a coupple things which threw me off here. The second I walked in (with a mask may i note) i noticed a pungent smell of cigarettes. The later once we got our meal I found a hair in it. Not a huge deal as these things happen, but just something to think about. Otherwise the food was wonderfull.
We enjoyed the food, it was great, the service by the staff was amazing, very accommodating to our requirements for the evening.
