What's my best bet at China House?

Catching up with some old friends over dinner at China House (their pick). What are my safest options to order? I'm hoping that as long as I go there with expectations of old school Canadian Chinese style food, I won't be too disappointed. Any recs?
Hope you're going soon. The last day of eat in at teh restaurant is July 18! A condo is going to be built on the property, but in the meantime for a while they are going to keep a take-out going until they find another location.
You're right -- it's Old School Canadian Chinese Food. Their long BBQ ribs are the best. The chicken chow mein is great. Their kung pao shrimp are delicious. Their house plum sauce is great. Good honey ribs. Enjoy!
Closing?!!? I have to get out there for one last meal, bad or not.
I used to always get the chicken soo gai there. I enjoyed it.
OK, back from dinner. The sticky BBQ ribs were the best part about dinner. The rest (cashew chicken, beef with ginger and scallions and some noodle dish with chicken, shrimp and BBQ pork) was just barely ok. Even with my expectations set appropriately, I left pretty unsatisfied. I should have just had more ribs and some steamed rice.
