Never again
August 07, 2014

I ordered from Magnolias for me and my son from the just eat app on my phone. My order would have come to 31$ something and was to be delivered within the hour....10 minutes past the hour I called and the lady whom answered insisted I wait. 30 minutes after the hour I called again after receiving a nasty phone... more

Slow service, food overpriced and just okay
July 07, 2014

The food is just okay, but the service was not. We ordered a combo a spring roll, and a noodle dish on the side. We asked how long it would be and they said a little while but they were not exactly sure. It took almost a hour but the restaurant was not even busy. I would not recommend this... more

Good chow mein
June 29, 2014

I always have chow mein when i visit here. It is fairly cheap, especially for lunch. You will have some stir fry veggies and meats. Ask server to bring some hot chili sauce which is perfect for this chow mein.

Don't EVER order from them
June 14, 2014

Worst experience ever! I phoned my order in for pick up instead of delivery and the lady got my name and phone number, gave me my total and told me within 30 minutes it would be ready. My husband went 15 minutes early thinking on a Sunday it was probably busy so he didn't want to be late. He had... more

Alright
March 21, 2014

The food was average for the price and the portions were generous. Had they not run out of my first three choices for a beverage I may have enjoyed the dinner more.

like coming home
January 26, 2014

Freshly made, never try to sneak in msg and treat us like family. Whenever we come back to st catharines, this is our "must eat there" spot. We have had many group dinners here and have always had rave reviews of the selection

Bad delivery service
January 18, 2014

Extremely disappointed with their delivery service. The order arrived quickly, but it was not correct. When I called to advise, they told me they would send someone out immediately. 15 minutes later (we only 2 mins from the restaurant) I called, as no-one had arrived. I was told he was on his way - well,,, he wasn't. 30 mins after... more

Great chicken balls and wontons soup. Singapore vermicelli was amazing but just ok now. Chicken wings are to die for.

Better for take-out
September 24, 2013

This wasn't the worst meal we've ever had but the atmosphere is pretty depressing. On a Saturday night there were only two other tables besides us. People were popping in frequently to pick up their food to take home. The waiter came by at one point to apologize for the wait because they were "working on take-out orders". If that's... more

Unexpected disappointment
August 12, 2013

We have eaten in and ordered delivery many times before/ Unfortunately this was our first disappointing delivery. Beef, very salty and didn't taste like beef, broccoli.. limp and soggy. rice... too salty.. lemon chicken... very overdone and hard... shrimp...overdone. Only good thing... egg rolls.

Consistent and fresh
July 25, 2013

They remember the regulars, even what I prefer to eat. Friendly, kind staff. The food is the best Chinese with tremendous variety of vegetables. Won ton soup is so tasty. The door stills bangs behind you and has been broken for years. Great place for lunch.
Very reasonable prices. Everything is freshly cooked.

Quite Good
April 27, 2013

I have only gone to this place for lunch, but I have gone several times. Their lunch specials are pretty good. I generally have the Singapore noodles, with a couple of dim sum items. I have had the chicken feet (I think they call them "Phoenix claws"), yuba rolls and siu mai. They are quite tasty. Decor is OK. Service is a little slow.

Group xmas party

We had our holiday part here this year as the selection can please everyone. Service was very good but food was average at best. This place needs better quality food as the price isn't cheap.

Yum
January 11, 2013

We love this place. We were a little skeptical at first due to the dated decor, but the food is fantastic and the portions are great! The owner is very friendly and the amount of take out customers coming in and out are a pretty good indication of the food! We would highly recommend...the orange chicken is awesome!!

Excellent food and service
December 13, 2012

Enjoyed a fantastic meal at this restaurant...our first visit. Service was fantastic and food excellent. Great selection which was well described in menu. Really tasty egg rolls that were definitely freshly made. Large plate of chicken fried rice was served hot with good sized chunks of chicken. Vegetable/mushroom dish was served hot and well prepared....not soggy. Our meat dish was... more

Second Best Chinese in Town
October 17, 2012

Pretty good, excellent service by the chef/owner. A semi-private room up front for luncheon business meetings. Excellent deep fried green beans -- although the first serving was way too salty and they had to bring a replacement. Pretty good food. The best Chinese is at Asian Legend, also in St. Catharines.

Yummy everything
August 31, 2012

We've ordered takeout several times in the last month ad have never been disappointed. The crispy green beans are so fresh and crispy. We love the salty and spicy ribs. Sweet and sour chicken is so delicious. the pineapple really adds to the flavor, the chicken is always tender. We usually get the veggie fried rice which has a real... more

Great food but staff overwhelmed
August 29, 2012

The food was very tasty and the restaurant interior was very pretty. The menu has a nice variety. Beware that everything is a la carte. For example, sticky rice, hot tea, etc. all cost a separate cost, not what I am used to where I live.

Disappointing
February 19, 2012

We had heard some positive reviews about this restaurant before going, but unfortunately we were not impressed with the food. The restaurant looks nice with a comfortable setting and decor. In our group we each ordered a dish and then shared. I have to say that they should bring all the food to the table at the same time, as... more

Will not return. The ambiance was fine. The kitchen was loud, but tolerable. The wait-staff was attentive, almost pushy, to get our order taken. All this is fine and did not make the experience intolerable. What made my wife and I decide never to return was that we ordered a dish and it contained frozen peas and corn. Not fresh. FROZEN. When we asked the waitress to take it back, she did, but... more

Wouldn't return
March 23, 2011

We tried this restaurant for the first time tonight. The ambiance is nice enough and the waitress brought the food very quickly but I'd have to say it was pretty bland and nothing special. We also kept being passed by and had to wait quite awhile and then call out for attention in order to get the waitress to come back to the table. In her defence, she was the only person on duty out on the... more

This is by far the best chinese food in St.Catharines. The service is friendly and the food is fresh and hot. I have gone over 7 times and at least 15 times for take-out and never had a problem.
