Lonely Planet review

This restaurant is widely known as the first establishment in Ottawa’s Chinatown, and is now run by the artistic children of the original owners. The food is great – modern Chinese cuisine with lots of veggie options – but the real draw is the trendy decor, rotating art exhibits and fabulous weekend events (think ‘Disco Bingo’ and karaoke) hosted by the local diva tranny goddess China-Doll.
